After a day away from this forum, reliving my days as a struggling art student, I return to being suited, and the weather is cooperating - partial sun and pleasant temperatures are predicted for today here in NYC. I've dug into the archives, and found a suit I've not worn in 18 months or so - always something of a spin of the roulette wheel, as I had no clear idea if the suit would fit (my weight fluctuating in unpleasant ways). Happily, it does. Who knew?

+1. Following upr's posts is watching a master at work. In this neck of the woods, a new tie that I believe coordinates really well with the suit.
Thank you, Bernoulli, and yes, I think that the new tie goes very well with your suit selection today.

The sun is currently shining here in NYC, but temperatures have dipped - the high today is only to be about 14C/58F. Wanting some extra insulation, I've opted for flannel today - but the loudest patterned flannel that I own.

Suit - New & Lingwood
Shirt - Brooks Brothers
Tie - Turnbull & Asser
Braces - Paul Stuart
Cufflinks - Brooks Brothers
Pocket square - no name brand
Shoes - Paul Stuart house brand

Friday, and a day overcast, with threat of rain - a good day to wear lesser items from the wardrobe - a suit obtained quite cheaply, and one of my oldest pairs of shoes.

Calendrically, it is May 13th in NYC, but meteorologically, it's March 13th, with rain expected, and temperatures not rising above 10C/50F, with wind chills making it seem colder. I have opted to wear one of my more favorite flannel suits - what I hope will be a last hurrah to winter (considering that it is mid-May).
