    NYC is predicted to have a very warm day today, with temperatures reaching 30C/86F. I am seeing whether or not a suit in a mohair blend makes suit-wearing more bearable in such heat.

    Otherwise, I've dug out of the closet some things I've not worn in a long while - today's shirt, from the shirt laundry tags, hasn't been worn since last July, and I cannot remember when last I wore today's tie. (Its excessive length reminds me why I don't wear it often.)

    Suit - Ede & Ravenscroft
    Shirt - Harvie & Hudson
    Tie - Church's
    Cufflinks - Brooks Brothers
    Braces - Paul Stuart
    Pocket square - no name brand
    Shoes - Paul Stuart

    ^^My friend, as always, you look fantastic! The fact you can pull on a shirt that you haven't worn for a year and have it fit so perfectly, given all the good eating you have reported though those marvelous lifestyle pictures you have shared with us, stands as an apparent testament to your personal fitness program. Thank you for sharing today's rig with us. ;)

    Thank you so much for your kind comments. For better or worse, I have clothes in a range of sizes - today's shirt leans towards the more generously proportioned. There are a few suits in my closet which I am hesitant to unwrap from their dry cleaner bags, for fear that they won't fit - a motivation to stay on the straight and narrow with regards to my personal fitness regimen. That, and my usual overweening sense of personal vanity :).

    To my eye, better a tie be a bit too long than too short. I suppose that wasn't always the case and I recall seeing old movies where the ties were quite a bit shorter. Have you tried tying it with a bigger knot?

    As it was, I tied yesterday's tie in a half Windsor, and it was still a bit too long.

    Off to drawing class this evening, where a remarkable ensemble would be entirely besides the point, so a most unremarkable getup has been provided, enlivened only by the shoes, socks, and cap.

    Shirt, trousers, cap - Brooks Brothers
    Shoes - New & Lingwood

    After a casual day yesterday, the weather still makes suit-wearing comfortable. Today's suit is the latest addition to my collection, and something of an experiment - a totally unlined jacket, and no shoulder padding. I will see whether or not this suit is more comfortable to wear in warm weather situations - certainly, it weighs about half of what most of my suits do.

    Suit - Paul Stuart/Phineas Cole
    Shirt - Tyrwhitt
    Tie - Damiano Presta, Rome
    Cufflinks - Deakin & Francis
    Braces - New & Lingwood
    Pocket square - Harvie & Hudson
    Shoes - Paul Stuart house brand

    Today's weather in NYC will be wet and grey for both the morning and the evening commute. Due to this, my attire for today is made up of outliers - my only Charvet shirt, and my only pair of grey shoes, the former a "bucket list" item that I found at an advantageous price, and the latter an experiment that I doubt that I will repeat, but said experiment has rubber soles, a useful feature on a wet day.

    So, dressed well enough to be rained on . . .

    Shirt - Charvet
    Khakis - Brooks Brothers
    Shoes - To Boot New York
