It's still rainy this morning in NYC, and it would be practical to dress down, but the heart wants what it wants, and I am tired of jeans and sneakers. My one concession to the weather is today's footwear, as the soles are Dainite.

Suit - Ede & Ravenscroft
Shirt - Tyrwhitt
Tie - Yves Saint Laurent
Cufflinks - Penhaligon's
Braces - Albert Thurston, via New & Lingwood
Pocket square - Robert Talbott
Shoes - Crockett & Jones

⇧ That suit states - matter of factly - quality.

I hope you missed the deluge that hit about a half hour ago - it was like every faucet over the city was fully opened - it was nuts.

Thank you, FF. Today's suit was a sale item bought at the end of a season at Ede & Ravenscroft, a shop at which I have had inexplicably good luck with their sales.

As for the rain, I avoided it, pretty much, walking from my apartment to the subway, but was subjected to it, full force, walking from my subway stop downtown to my office. Happily, I took full advantage of all of the underground connections at the Oculus, and came up only two blocks from my office, and on a stretch of sidewalk partially covered by scaffolding, so I was able to get to work fairly unscathed. Today's suit is also a mohair blend, which helps with shape retention.

Due to technical issues with connectivity, I was unable to post this morning, but rest assured that I will post today's attire this evening, assuming that the connectivity issues with AAAC (and That Other Website) have been fixed.

As if Mondays didn't already s*ck enough - now this.:fool:

What am I supposed to look forward to now (it's all about me)?

Next I'll find we're all out of chocolate.

Kidding aside, have a good day / looking forward to the pics tonight.

The sun has returned to NYC, and it's not unbearably hot yet, so one can dress up without fear of overheating - at least for the moment. (Posted late due to technical issues this morning, getting access to the website. FF, don't worry, we're sending you chocolate as well :). )
