I watched the same show. It had a pretty long segment featuring his marriage preparations and ceremony. Mafoofan also flashed by. Whnay and his wife looked great but the price for best dressed goes to Mr (Pepe?) Fanjul who appeared in the first segment of the show.
Hope you had a good time. I have been there ten times over the last year but must have missed the secret topping.
Burger, Bourbon & Beer for $25 in the lounge at Fifth Floor. Hard to beat.
I assume he is looking for something in Midtown.I can recommend The Benjamin. About $350-400 per night with corporate discount. http://www.thebenjamin.com/A step up would be The Peninsula. One of the best hotels that I have stayed at but it will be closer to $750 per night. http://www.peninsula.com/New_York/en/default.aspx.
Ok, the suit looked dark grey on my screen. I wear blue ties with navy suits all the time. Just make sure there is enough contrast between the blues. If you want some tie inspiration I recommend scrolling through this thread.http://www.styleforum.net/t/104040/soporific-tie-pornI would not worry about the suit. It looks fine to me. (It is tough to judge from the picture but arms might be a little big.) If you show up looking neat in a crisp freshly ironed shirt with well...
Did you interview on a Saturday? Hope it went well!Suit is fine but I would have chosen a more sedate tie. Maybe dark blue with a small pattern.

Twenty something years ago I actually wore the same style and colour shirts, ties, blazer and pants for four years straight. But I stopped when I graduated high school...
Go to a football (soccer) game and see Inter Milan or AC Milan in action. It is much cheaper than in other European cities e.g. Barcelona, Madrid or London and tickets are almost always available. They can ususally be purchased at the stadium. Ask your hotel for help. If you half a day to spare. Take a commuter train to Como and get on a ”hop on hop off” ferry that goes between the different villages surrounding Lake Como. Have a fantastic lunch in one of them before...
Navy socks with everything. Never wear BDs with suits. Never wear shirts with breast pockets with suits. And I would never wear a tie with a BD. I try to not complicate things; two solids and one pattern.
Had dinner at Slanted Door last week. Nice place, good service and fantastic food. It was a business dinner that I hosted and since I am new in town I relied on a friend’s recommendation. When people in the office heard where we were going two guys (who were not joining us) commented that it is just a “tourist place” today. Funny thing is that this was the fourth time in the few months since I started working here that I have heard that comment about a restaurant and all...
