Friday, and spring-like weather and sunshine have returned to NYC. I am meeting up with some friends for drinks this evening, at a hotel bar in midtown, and have opted for my usual state of overdress - a state that my friends actually appreciate. I also want to get another wearing out of today's suit before it turns too warm to wear it.

Shirt - Brooks Brothers MTM
Tie - Hackett, London

It seems it is the subtle compatibility's of your accessories that make today's rig work so well. My friend, you will easily be the best dressed participant in tonight's shindig! Thanks for sharing it with us. ;)

I only hope that my fellow drinkers appreciate my efforts as much as you have - thank you!

Eagle, you can make that judgment now for yourself.

Today promises to be rainy later on, and I'm off to drawing class in any case, so nothing of interest to be posted from today's attire, but I did get one photo of my friends and I after drinks on Friday night, a photo better suited (in several senses of the phrase) to this thread than any I could produce this morning.

^^ upr_crust,
to my eye, you win hands down, with your strongest competition coming from your husband, followed by the gentleman on the far right side of your photo...and even he is wearing his trouser legs just a trifle too short! ;)

Shameless flattery will get you far . . . :)

(And thanks for the thumbs up, Jeff.)

I'm in agreement with you eagle,
I'm consistently amazed at the way upr_crust is able to craft a perfectly harmonious look that expresses his unique sense of style while never being overstated.

Thank you for the compliments, but you may wish to reconsider your opinion of "never being overstated" when you see my posting for tomorrow (the reason for this comment will become clear when you see my attire).
