My dear friend Bernoulli, your last posting has become the meat of a Crusty sandwich, I fear . . . ; )

The weather in NYC is sunny and much milder than normal for mid-February, and, with today's posting, I have worked my way through the "forgotten" suits in my suit closet. Today's suit it the newest of the four that I've sported this week, and I've always liked it - I, for whatever reason, am always more relaxed in a brown suit.

Suit - Paul Stuart/Phineas Cole
Shirt - Brooks Brothers
Tie - Ralph Lauren Purple Label
Cufflinks - Liberty of London, (circa 1984)
Braces - Paul Stuart
Pocket square - Ashear
Shoes - Septieme Largeur
Overcoat - Joseph Abboud
Scarf - New & Lingwood
Hat - Laird, London

The weather in NYC has warmed up to seasonal averages, and it promises not to be wet for at least the next 24 hours. After a very casual four day stretch (with only a couple of hours of suited activity for an early Valentine's Day dinner Sunday evening), I have cause to be back in a suit today - a members' evening at the Morgan Library, celebrating the opening of three exhibits - Holbein, Woody Guthrie, and Gwendolyn Brooks.

A friend recently wrote to me referencing today's suit, purchased nearly 10 years ago. He and I were in London, meeting for the first time face-to-face (we were Internet acquaintances prior to that), and we went shopping together, though I believe that I was the spendthrift that day, buying this suit - I don't remember that he bought anything. I had the pleasure of his advice, and his company, in any case, and have continued to have had adventures both cultural and sartorial with him to the present (and beyond, I hope).

In any case, that's how I selected today's suit.

The weather today in New York is unnaturally mild - currently 63F/17 C under partially sunny skies. Noting this, I've opted for a summer weight suit, and no overcoat - just a hat, in case it's breezy outside.

Today's near-monochrome color scheme is certainly not my usual choice, but, in looking at what shirts were next in rotation, I opted for white, and then trying today's tie with the shirt and suit, the choice seemed to have made visual sense. It also gave me the chance to wear today's cufflinks, which I can remember wearing before.

The weather in NYC is sunny, but is getting increasingly cold, after a major bout of rain overnight, with gusty winds. Eschewing formality in anticipation of the long weekend (at least here in the US), I've opted for a gun check and some suede.

The weather currently in NYC is wet, and has been most of the afternoon, and I've not dressed up for the occasion. However, last week, I did have the chance to have some jackets of my altered, and am pleased with the changes (some subtle, some not so subtle) that my alterations tailor has made, which I share with you below:

The weather in NYC today is unnaturally spring-like, with highs around 63F/17C, and, at this moment, sunshine - a contrast to tomorrow, when it is will be a high of 36F/2C, a prelude to rain and snow on Friday.

As the weather is unnaturally spring-like, I've donned an unnaturally spring-like ensemble with which to face the afternoon.

The temperature has dropped like a stone here in NYC, and we're due snow (happily, changing over to rain) overnight, such that yesterday's imitation of spring has disappeared entirely. That being said, it allows yet another iteration of winterweight outerwear, and a three-piece suit, to boot.

I normally don't wear a patterned shirt with today's suit, the rope stripe being as strong a pattern as it is, but there is always room for experimentation, good, bad, or indifferent. The suit itself has served me well over the last 12 years, and should do so for several years to come.

The weather in NYC has ceased to be wet (the snow which fell overnight was washed away by the rain that followed it, and that stopped a few hours ago), but is still cold (today's high will be 39F/5C), so layers of flannel are still appropriate. I have indulged today in a bit of "recycling" - I am wearing the same shirt as yesterday, only with a different suit, tie, and other accessories, proving, perhaps, that context is everything.

The weather in NYC is sunny albeit cold, and I have the pleasure late this afternoon to attend a lecture at the Frick Madison on Whistler portraits, so, I thought that I might look presentable, should the ghost of James Abbott McNeill Whistler be hanging about the joint - wouldn't wish to disappoint the dead.

The weather in NYC today is sunny and seasonably cool, and I am planning on meeting a friend for a drink later on this afternoon, in a venue without a proper coat check, hence the less-than-formal headgear vs. more formal attire underneath the outerwear.

I've had today's tie for many years, and in the past have only worn it with brown suits, so today's matching is something of a departure from standard practice, but what is life without experimentation. Ditto on the funky socks.

The weather in NYC is again sunny and seasonably cool - 41F/5C for the afternoon. As it happens, I am attending the Met Opera this evening, "Don Carlos", the five act French version, which spans five hours (with two generous intermissions). It's the first time in over two years that I have the chance to go to the opera, and thought that, short of donning black tie, that I should wear something reasonably dressy.

The weather in NYC is bright, but cold - much colder than yesterday, daytime, and I have survived my outing to the Met Opera, all five hours of the French version of Verdi's "Don Carlos" - bed time was in the wee hours of this morning. After a week of very dressy attire, I've opted today for something a bit more casual - tweedy and warm. Included are a couple of "lifestyle" photos from my seat at the opera.
