x-post WAYWRN - Paul Stuart shoes, BB socks and suit trousers . . .
After yesterday's casual attire, back to a suit today. This evening, my husband and I are attending a members' preview at the Museum of Modern Art, a social gathering for which some form of stylistic pretension or affectation is almost a prerequisite, hence today's get-up.

"On the other end of the season spectrum, Crusty further makes the case in my mind that windowpane works better with flannel for winter (I'm assuming it's flannel, it looks fuzzy) - also really like the nip at the waist on this jacket; extremely flattering in conjunction with the vest." You are correct - the fabric is a lightweight flannel, with a nap, and It's good that most of my windowpane patterned suits are winter-weight - at least to conform to your judgments. As...
Trust me, I've not bought anything from Lewin in several years, but, then again, I'm old enough to have bought shirts from them when the shirts were marked "Made in England" (not today's however).
