@upr_crust, your last rigs were a touch above your excellent norm. I think I am in love with your striped suits, so here is my humble contribution to this theme.

Jimbo2 said "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!"
Gentlemen - thank you for your kind compliments. Bernoulli, today's suit is most excellent, and with your long legs, 5cm cuffs serve you well. Jimbo, yesterday's suit is a favorite of mine (among many) but often doesn't find a great deal of favor on the Internet - dunno why . . .[/QUOTE]

Crusty, I bet you can't wait to stop wearing your jacket for the warmer temperatures coming next week.
We will see how warm it will get next week, and how my tolerance of heat and humidity will fare with suit-wearing.

Dear eagle and upr_crust, thank you for your kind words. Upr, I don't get why the interwebz don't like this suit of yours. I love the shade of blue and I think it suits you perfectly. And your shoes? Oh, your shoes...

This is one of your best, my friend. I like the aggressive cuffs on the suit trousers. ;)

I really like your tie.
Thank you, Jeff. I've had it several years, and it doesn't get enough usage - I will work on that this spring . . .

It wasn't Friday's blue suit that hasn't felt the love on the interwebz, it was Thursday's grey suit, but, ironically enough, on That Other Website, the grey suit garnered a quite respectable number of thumbs up, and the blue one is lagging behind - go figure. As for Friday's shoes, those were a lucky find at the C & J store here in NYC - a sale item.

Next Week should be in the mid 70's, most of the days include showers and thunderstorms are possible.

^^I find myself inclined to
go with tie #1. It's texture seems to be more compatible with your jacket's texture. It also visually plays more nicely with the pocket square. ;)
