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

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

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! ;)
