"Off the Record" at the Hay Adams on Friday, March 18, at 5:00 pm. I'll be wearing the DB Field suit posted earlier, so you'll have a visual anchor.

They are very heavily structured, yes. Too heavily structured. That's one reason among several that has kept me from going back to English-American.

Jacket fit passed the "William Field test" a month or so ago when I asked him to look it over, so it's probably just my stance / posture.

"In the US, it is a well-established and I believe very Trad thing to wear Brooks Bros. Alden tassel loafers with suits." Crusty's right about that. A good argument against Trad by the way.
Not going for the trad bake-off today, largely because the coat is very English and not at all "trad." It's casual Friday at the office, mid-50s and partly cloudy. So we get a study in blue and brown. Excuse the full-shot pose in which I stand with a ridiculously pronounced swish - there's only so many photos I can ask the admin asst. to take to get this right and I'm not yet used to this sort of thing, so you get what you get.
