Another bright, sunny winter's day, with temperatures about 46F/8C. I chose today's suit as a background for today's shirt, which is the brightest and most eye-catching item of the ensemble, and which needs a dark background against which to be seen. For the rest of the assembled items, I merely channeled my inner 1980's - red braces and tie.

Tie & braces - Brooks Brothers

The shirt and tie combination make this outfit really pop!

Nice retro sports coat.

Today's attire is driven by the mixed bag of errands I have to perform this afternoon - first, an appointment at Cartier to find out what has happened to my vintage Le Must de Cartier tank watch, which has been languishing in repair since mid-November, then an appointment at Walgreen's to get my first COVID vaccine. Walgreen's requires a short-sleeved shirt; Cartier requires attire giving me enough street cred that I can put up a fuss if I don't like what they have to say to me, and not come off like an oaf. As I said, a mixed bag . . .

Sports jacket - Paul Stuart/Phineas Cole (made of a cotton jersey with Elastane - essentially, a high-grade sweat shirt)
Shirt - Brooks Brothers
Pocket square - Robert Talbott
Levi's
Boots - Paul Stuart
Overcoat - Joseph Abboud
Scarf - Paul Stuart
Cap - Paul Stuart
Face mask - New & Lingwood

This outfit threads the needle of interacting with 2 very different audiences.
Excellent choices!

The weather is sunny, but quite cold today - I have yet to venture outside, but reports are such that it's freezing out. Day 2 of Shot #1 of the Moderna vaccine is about as expected - sore at the point of injection, and otherwise feeling just slightly off, an effect that I foresee dissipating by tomorrow. As in all things, we shall see . . .

The sun continues to shine here in NYC, and temperatures have moderated themselves to a more seasonable degree. I recently purchased a pair of trousers, the color of which was a suggestion from the store manager at New & Lingwood, whence I bought my newest sports jacket, worn last Friday, but as I did not wish to wear the same jacket again so soon, I've substituted a jacket which I purchased a year ago last January at Gieves & Hawkes. I've photographed both for comparison.

Apparently, from what I've read online today, flat caps have made a comeback - with me, they never left.

The weather remains clear, if not persistently sunny, and seasonably cold. The highlight of my day will be a dental cleaning, for which today's attire is more than sufficient to the task at hand.

The weather in NYC today is bright and sunny, but frigidly breezy, and expected to stay that way all afternoon. I am off soon to a members' preview of the Frick Museum in its temporary home at the old Whitney Museum, now dubbed "Frick Madison". As I am visiting the art of a plutocrat, I thought that I might as well dress like one (and the layers of flannel will come in handy while outside).
