Just back from the most wonderful week in NYC - thanks to everyone for their help and encouragement. We acted on many of your recommendations which were uniformly excellent. The river cruise was made even more spectacular since we did it on Memorial Day and there were various fly-pasts by both historic and current military aircraft, up and down the Hudson River. Central Park, Metropolitan Museum, Whitney Museum, Chrysler, Seagram, Flatiron and Empire State Buildings - fantastic. Grand Central Station was amazing, so was the Reading Room in NY Public Library. We ate very well (a bit too well, if my waistband does not deceive me) and all now understand the fuss that is made over NY cheesecake. Best meal of the trip (thanks, Fashionslave) was at Gallagher's on 52nd Street. Best steak I have ever eaten... Turning to matters sartorial... I managed to give my family the slip one day and did 5th Ave/Madison Ave. Once again, wow. In the end I brought home: 7 for All Mankind jeans Brioni 'casual' shirt: white with olive green and pale turquoise stripes (on sale in Barney's) J Press button-down-oxfords with flap-pocket: pink and blue Three grosgrain belts: 2 from Press, 1 from RL Brooks Brothers tie: pink, with white stripes Caswell-Massey Greenbriar Eau de Toilette. Thanks again.
