It's always interesting to see the associations different countries have with the same attire. In the UK, today's attire would say "City of London banker of a certain age"; in the US, it says "extra from "Boardwalk Empire". Al Capone has a lot to answer for in this matter . . .Upr_crust, you have done it again...a memorably great look: a beloved Grandfather or a respected/perhaps feared "Godfather"...the choice is yours. My friend, "you like horses, don't you?"
Finally, the sun has returned to NYC, and by this afternoon, temperatures will be spring-like - mid-60's F/18C. I have an invitation this evening to a members' preview for the Whitney Biennial, which requested "festive dress". If history is any indication, "festive dress" in the minds of the other patrons can vary widely - many attend the event looking as if they've just left their painting studio in Williamsburg or Bushwick to get in on the free drinks (always a highlight of any museum preview party).
For myself, below is what I've chosen to wear, with a blingy touch in my choice of cufflinks, to add to the celebratory atmosphere.
Suit & braces - New & Lingwood
Shirt - Brooks Brothers MTM
Tie - Brooks Brothers
Cufflinks - DVVS, New York (now defunct)
Vintage watch chain
Pocket square - Harvie & Hudson, London
Shoes - Bergdorf Goodman house brand
Hat - Selentino, via JJ Hat Center, NYC
