    The weather has relented, temporarily, here in NYC, and it just felt right to indulge in a little rumpled linen to start the week.

    Suit - Joseph Abboud
    Shirt - Harvie & Hudson
    Tie - Church's
    Cufflinks - Turnbull & Asser
    Pocket square - no name brand
    Shoes - Paul Stuart house brand (made by Crockett & Jones)

    Indulgences from the latest sales - Crockett & Jones, Charvet from Saks, and a bow tie from Paul Stuart . . .

    Upr, I have noted before that I don't love your JAB suits (just too far below your usual standards of fit, flow, drape, construction and quality), but this one is the exception that proves the rule (there's a circular logic at work in that expression that I don't love) as today's suit is outstanding.

    Also, love your new purchases, with my favorite being that insanely gorgeous second pair of C&Js.

    FF, when I first bought this suit, you made the same mistake as to its manufacture - Joseph A Bank is not the same as Joseph Abboud. Abboud has its own factory in New Bedford, MA (Abboud is from the Bay State, as am I) from which his higher-end offerings (such as the stock at his shop on Madison Avenue) are sourced.

    That being said, I generally agree with you that even the JAB suits I own do not fit as well, and certainly are not as well made, as those from other sources residing in my closet.

    As for the latest indulgences from Crockett & Jones, I needed neither, but shoe lust overtook fiscal probity. Glad that at least the effect was worth it.

    Now that you note it, I remember having messed that up before (I'd blame my dyslexia, but that's a cop out - I think it has more to do with my SBS [small-brain syndrome]). That said, I'm glad it isn't JAB so that I can keep my JAB-hate unqualified - just kidding, just not a fan.

    Only a few of us here at AAAC are buying out of need and that's a good thing - enjoy your new purchases and wear them in good health. I believe from another of your posts, that we have a new suit to see soon - can't wait.

    Yes, a suit and a sports jacket, both from Paul Stuart, which should be ready by tomorrow afternoon. Depending on weather conditions, I will most likely attempt to wear one or the other Wednesday - photo evidence will be supplied as to outcome.

    Predictions are that it will reach 33C/91F by the afternoon, hence the lack of jacket.

    Shirt, trousers, linen cap - Brooks Brothers
    Shoes - Bergdorf Goodman house brand

    Yes, Howard, it kept me cooler.

    I had hoped to be wearing new swag from Paul Stuart's today, but the alterations department was late with the sports jacket I had hoped to wear. Instead, I am wearing an indulgence from Stuart's but from a year or two back. I hope that it shall be sufficient for my needs today.

    Sports jacket - Paul Stuart
    Shirt - Tyrwhitt
    Tie & trousers - Brooks Brothers
    Cufflinks - Thomas Pink
    Pocket square - Harvie & Hudson, London
    Shoes - Carmina, via the Armoury, NYC
    Hat - Peter Grimm
