The end of the week, and one day shy of my birthday (an impossibly high number). As it happens, I have less of a "birthday", and more of a "birth season", since it always seems that I am doing any number of celebratory things around this time of year.

This evening, my husband is taking me to dinner - an occasion on which to dress up well. I leave it to your judgment if mission has been accomplished.

Suit - Paul Stuart
Shirt - Tyrwhitt
Tie - London York
Braces - Lewin
Cufflinks - DVVS, NYC - a custom job, mounted pieces of British Columbian jade, a souvenir of Vancouver.
Pocket square - Harvie & Hudson, London
Shoes - Bergdorf Goodman house brand
Hat - Selentino, via JJ Hat Center, NYC

Upr, happy one day before your birthday.

As to your mission for tonight - you have dressed up very well.

Love the suit; love the outfit; you have a classic, but contemporary look working - impressive.

Have fun tonight and throughout the birthday season.

Crusty, love the look and enjoy your birthday dinner.
Thank you, gentlemen, for the good wishes on the anniversary of my aging :). FF, I will be dining in your general neck of the woods this evening - the Simone, at 82st between Lex and Third. A small place, owner operated (the wife runs the front of the house, the husband is the chef), very civilized.

In the wake of a busy three-day weekend, and with drawing class this evening, a suit was not in the cards for today, so I opted for a last hurrah for a summer-weight sports jacket, a bow tie (guaranteed not to flop onto my drawing pad at an inopportune moment) and cotton khakis. Enough clothing to get me through the day, at least . . .

Sports jacket - Paul Stuart/Phineas Cole
Shirt & trousers - Brooks Brothers
Tie - Seigo, NYC
Pocket square - Ashear
Shoes - Alden
Cap - Stetson
