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 . . .

I wish I could wear linen today. Finally cooling down some in Michigan. I left work early to get my linen suit and dress shirts squared away.

After yesterday's monsoon in NYC, the temperatures have dropped, and it is predicted to be quite windy this afternoon, prompting the first appearance this season of a top coat, in addition to headgear. Underneath, a last hurrah for my latest summer weight suit, just back from the tailor's in an attempt to un-taper the legs as much as possible (my enormous calves notwithstanding).

The end of the week, and proper fall temperatures and some level of sunshine return to the metro NYC area, allowing for all the accouterments of the fall/winter season - overcoat, hat, and scarf. For today, I decided to double down on the use of paisley - both tie and pocket square are so patterned.
