Blue shirt is a great choice!The weather in NYC has cooled down, become sunny and quite dry - a perfect day in which to squeeze another wearing of what is ostensibly a winter suit - one of my newer acquisitions from the past sale season this year.
When laying out my clothes for today, I did want to avoid using a white shirt with this suit, only as I've worn this suit with white shirts exclusively, so far. I tried a couple of small-scale patterns - narrow stripes and graph checks - and did not care for the effect it had with the bold windowpane check of the suit, but a solid blue shirt seemed to do the trick nicely. It also provides a nice color contrast with the rust/orange of the tie, and the warm earthen colors of today's braces - their second wearing, and I've included a second photo in order to better show off their pattern.
I've also included a couple of shots of the very clear views of midtown and downtown Manhattan from my living room this morning
