    Thank you, Howard, and yes, my office is well air-conditioned.

    It's still hot and humid here in NYC, with some relief coming after tomorrow, so it's back to linen trousers and sport shirts. Today's shoe choice is something of an experiment, and today's hat is a new purchase, bought on the cheap yesterday.

    Shirt - Tyrwhitt
    Trousers - Brooks Brothers
    Shoes - To Boot New York, via Saks Fifth Ave,
    Hat - Peter Grimm

    My only grey pair of shoes - not the easiest shoes to match to an outfit, but very comfortable.

    Thank you, Xplorenu

    The weather this morning in NYC is warm and rainy - not a combo that inspires one to dress well, certainly. Dressing defensively then, to end a week without a necktie . . .

    Shirt & trousers - Brooks Brothers
    Shoes - Cole-Haan

    ^^Paraphrasing the late great painter of light, Thomas Kincaid, "a perfect end to a sartorially perfect week of daily rigs!" Thank you, upr_crust.

    Thank you, Eagle. What is, or will be frustrating, is that I'm picking up a new suit and a new sports jacket at Paul Stuart tomorrow (both sale items), and I've picked up a bow tie from Stuart's (sale, ditto) and a Charvet from my local Saks (at some 2/3's off), and the weather for the foreseeable future, other than tomorrow and Sunday, will be abysmal for wearing any of it. Grrrrrr.

    ^^Waiting can be frustrating, but it's been said it builds character...LOL. Regardless if it does or not, many of us will be looking forward to first sight of those new acquisitions, as the weather conditions moderate to a point that wearing them becomes an option! :)

    At least you feel comfortable Crusty, it gets too humid to wear ties during the summer.

    This is what I wore today. Truth be told, the jacket did not stay on very long (monsoon season, over 90 degrees and humid). The jacket is a typical inexpensive center-vent cotton seersucker sportscoat that fits like a sack. I removed the rear vent and trimmed the silhouette and waist, giving it a ventless, Italian look. The tie is Ralph Lauren, and the shirt by Hathaway. All thrift purchases. The total cost of everything seen here including slacks is under $25.00. Cost of alterations... just my time.

    I have several pair of grey shoes and don't seem to struggle so much. Pretty much anything that might favor black does well for a darker shade of grey. And for lighter grey shoes cream/off white does nicely. Maybe it's just getting used to wearing them more. I used to shun brown shoes with navy suits but a dark brown expresso color is extremely nice (maybe it's some cognitive dissonance at work...)
