After about two weeks of typically hot, humid June/July weather in NYC, it has cooled off to the point where the donning of a suit jacket is not a torture, and I am tired of living in polo shirts, shorts and sneakers, so here's my attire for the afternoon. I've never worn today's suit as a two-piece before - always with the matching waistcoat - so there is that small experiment for the day as well.

Suit - Joseph Abboud
Shirt - Hilditch & Key
Tie - Brooks Brothers
Cufflinks - Deakin & Francis via New & Lingwood
Pocket square - no name brand
Shoes - Crockett & Jones, model Gower2
Hat - Peter Grimm

Glad the weather allowed for a post as you've been missed.

Love everything, in particular, the shoes both by themselves and with that suit.

To my eye, today's rig could be best described with one word...Refreshing....and you, as always, wear it so very well! Thanks for all that you bring to this forum, my friend. ;)

Today I set a goal for myself: can I pull off wearing items that I really don't like much, creating an interesting outfit? I do like the vest and the shoes but the shirt is most likely going to be retired soon, and I don't care much for the tie and the blandness of the suit fabric.

After a day away, due to the predicted monsoon of yesterday (and it did pour buckets for a short period, mid-afternoon yesterday in NYC), the weather has returned to winter, temporarily. I am taking advantage, and getting one last wearing of one of my favorite suits in, before it goes to the cleaners, and then into hibernation for the spring/summer season. I've paired it with a tie that I've owned for some 20+ years, and cufflinks that I almost never wear (they're a bit formal - and blingy - to pair with most suits, but today's suit can handle them).

Suit - Paul Stuart/Phineas Cole
Shirt - Ike Behar
Tie - Lewin
Cufflinks - Tyrwhitt
Braces & face mask - New & Lingwood
Pocket square - Brooks Brothers
Shoes - Bergdorf Goodman house brand
Overcoat - Turnbull & Asser
Scarf - Ede & Ravenscroft
Hat - Lock, London

Some years ago I watched a show (I believe it was Boardwalk Empire). A mobster told a young Al Capone he was still wearing a kid's cap. He should wear a man's hat. The next scene Capone dissed the cap and was wearing a hat!. Caps are cool. I believe we as men need to go back to wearing...Hats! Every photo here when adorning a hat...Just cool!

I should title this posting "Christmas in July", or, more accurately, "What I bought myself for Christmas in July" - two recent purchases - the boots and the tie - which, having an idle hour this evening, I decided to try on in context, i.e. with an outfit that plausibly shows them off to some advantage. Obviously, the heat and humidity of a New York City summer are getting to me, but my folly is of a harmless and benign nature, so please be indulgent.

Suit - New & Lingwood
Shirt - Hilditch & Key
Tie - Charvet, via Saks Fifth Avenue (a "crime of opportunity", i.e. deeply discounted)
Cufflinks - Corcione, Napoli
Braces - Albert Thurston
Pocket square - Harvie & Hudson, London
Boots - J. Fitzpatrick
Hat - Lock, London

Love the tie and boots - enjoy them both. The boots are @RogerP impressive, which is a very high compliment.

Your outstanding outfit has a "Boardwalk Empire" echo.

Following @upr_crust, the best of us all is a tall order, but I claim greatness by association as the tie was his gift. Today, I chose one of my two or three favorite suits, even if it displays the results of some weird choices.

As seems to be your way, my friend, you are looking quite good from head to foot this (and every) day, but I must tell you, I am most impressed by your shoes. Those handsome wing tips have seen a fair amount of wear, but have also been well cared for and maintained, throughout their service to you. A gentleman's shoes tell us a lot about the man and in this case, it is all good! Thank you for sharing them with us. ;)

I don't think it is hard to pick up which type of fabric the suit and shirt are made from.

@eagle2250, thank you for your kind words. This pair is indeed dear to me. It was the first pair for which I spent a significant amount of money. I made a mistake a bought a size too large. No matter. I will keep taking care of it and wearing it with pride.

Now it is I who is at the disadvantage of comparison, posting directly after Bernoulli.

The weather in NYC has held out for a second day of warm but bearable temperatures and relatively low humidity, so I have made my second attempt this week at dressing properly - this time to be worn outside, in the real world (meeting a friend for an early dinner). Today's suit is entirely unlined, which should help me not turn into a sweaty mess immediately upon leaving my apartment.

Shirt - Brooks Brothers
Tie - Charvet
Cufflinks - Deakin & Francis
Braces - Albert Thurston, via Paul Stuart

The weather in NYC has cooled off enough such that the thought of donning a suit jacket does not fill one with dread, and as it has been seven days since I've last donned a tie, and only the second day this week that I've donned long trousers, I thought I would celebrate the break in the weather.

I've also added photographs "in context" of my last three footwear purchases - the black J Fitzpatrick semi-brogue boots, the two special orders from Septieme Largeur, the aubergine lace-ups, and the brown double monks, both accented with crocodile leather.

Wearing these shoes does indeed put them in the proper context to fully appreciate them. They are stunning and the craftsmanship is outstanding!
