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

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?" ;)

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 . . . ;)

After last night's revels at the Whitney, my attire is more low-key for today, chosen late last night, very quickly. As it is, I have to run a happy sartorial errand this evening, as my latest indulgence from Paul Stuart is supposed to be ready for pickup - a summer weight suit, unlined, and with virtually no padding. We shall see the results of this act of possible madness soon enough.

Included in today's posting are the obligatory shots of the skyline of Manhattan, as seen from the 7th floor terrace of the Whitney Museum last night. One of the problems that the art at the Whitney has is that it must compete with the views from the museum's terraces - very stiff visual competition.

Suit - Paul Stuart
Shirt - Tyrwhitt
Tie - JAB
Braces - Trafalgar, via Paul Stuart
Cufflinks - David Donohue, via Cable Var Clothiers, SF
Pocket square - no name brand
Shoes - Paul Stuart house brand

Sir Crust, absolute perfection! Even better than yesterday's grey pinstripe, which is one of my favorite color combinations - grey and pink! Thank you for this Friday treat!

Crusty, I bet you can't wait to stop wearing your jacket for the warmer temperatures coming next week.
