What Are You Wearing Today 2.0?

It's been a week since I last posted, and there has been major changes in the weather, the latest brought on by the leftovers of Hurricane Ida, which deluged the metro NYC area, but, in its aftermath, the weather has turned cooler, drier and sunny.

After last week's tossup between two ensembles, I chose the blue suit of the two choices, but, this Friday, I am giving the grey suit its chance to show itself. I kept the accessorization the same as last week, as I liked the combination - forgive me, but sartorial history is repeating itself.

Suit - Paul Stuart/Phineas Cole
Shirt - Hilditch & Key
Tie - Chipp (a present from a good and generous friend)
Cufflinks - Deakin & Francis, via Scully & Scully, NYC
Braces - Albert Thurston, via Paul Stuart
Pocket square - Polo Ralph Lauren
Shoes - Septieme Largeur, Paris (custom patinated)

Another very nice rig, but I really love the Skull & Crossbones braces! Your shoes are also quite handsome.;)

The weather in NYC is currently optimal - sunny, pleasantly warm, with low humidity - a perfect day to dress up.

As it is, I was a bit self-indulgent yesterday, and bought myself a sports jacket from the Paul Stuart warehouse sale, a photo of which I've included in today's set of shots. As an end-of-season item, it was marked down precipitously, and I am off to a good alterations tailor to have the sleeves shortened and finished after this posting. It is also one size smaller than the bulk of my suit jackets - a size I've not worn since the first Reagan administration. There must be something to this diet and exercise regimen I am on . . .

Suit - Phineas Cole/Paul Stuart
Sports jacket - Paul Stuart
Shirt - Brooks Brothers
Tie - Thomas Farthing, London
Cufflinks - Deakin & Francis, via Scully & Scully, NYC
Braces - Paul Stuart

The sports jacket is sharp!

After two days of threat of rain, or rain, or high humidity, or all of the above, the weather in NYC has dried out and cooled such that one can wear a suit outdoors without fear of heat stroke.

Attempting to rotate through my wardrobe, today's suit hasn't been worn in a long time, and today's tie even longer. It is always interesting to explore the archives . . .

With the temperature cooling down, I will be cycling to work every day.

I like the rig, love the mirror shine on those shoes, and greatly admire your initiative in cycling to work. Years back I tried that for awhile, but I'm one of those types that has got to shower after such efforts. Hence, I had to pre-position clothes at work and had to arrive early enough to allow time to make myself presentable. I guess it must have been too much of a hassle and I gave it up after a couple of weeks. Keep up your effort...I admire the fortitude! ;)

Much deliciousness ensued . . .

Two impeccably dressed gentlemen! Happy anniversary to you and your husband, my friend.

PS: May we assume you ate those artful dessert plates after photographing them. My growling stomach wants to know. ;)

Thank you, Eagle, and yes, those impeccable plates were consumed mere seconds after the photos were taken, gleefully.

The weather has cooled and cleared a bit, in anticipation of autumn (one can only hope), and my day, which was supposed to be taken up with dental work (I am in the process of my third root canal in the last 18 months - not a pleasant concept from several different angles) was postponed by a day at the request of my dentist. Making sartorial hay while the sun is shining (but not too hotly), I've dressed for the afternoon.

I've worn today's tie with today's suit before, and found it a pleasing combination, and a friend recently posted photos of himself in blue shoes with a grey suit, so, monkey see, monkey do. As it is, the taper on the trouser legs of this suit is so aggressive I've only worn low-cut loafers with this suit previously, but proper lace-up shoes seem to work adequately well as well.

Suit - Paul Stuart/Phineas Cole
Shirt - Brooks Brothers
Tie & braces - New & Lingwood
Cufflinks - DVVS, NYC (now defunct)
Pocket square - no name brand
Shoes - Magnanni for Bergdorf Goodman
