Today, it was Temple Sinai in Stamford, CT, and the outfit was total overkill, but so far as I've ever seen, it's no sin to overdress for shul.
The suit is New & Lingwood RTW, fall 2009, and the shoes are Bexley, a French brand (made in Portugal), with a website - www.bexley.com, IIRC. They were not expensive, and I had always wanted a pair of wholecuts that weren't blobby, or too pointy, and these seemed to fit the bill.
Not sure what it is, but I like this far more then your usual efforts upr_crust. Not that there are anything wrong with your usual fits, just that you and I have slightly different tastes. I do like this though.
Thank you, gnatty, though from your usual selections, my outfit today was even further from your usual tastes as reflected by your normal postings. An unexpected compliment, then, for which I thank you.
You, too, UC
i like the choice of tie/suspenders - and for wearing black shoes with a suit that needs black shoes. pretty strong suit for a sunday, but i reckon the occassion calls for it.
It turned out that it didn't, but the attire did not go unappreciated. The tie is Charvet, the suspenders Brooks Bros, and the tie refuses to go with anything other than a white shirt (it's quite a diva in that respect), and the suspenders are the most neutral pair I own (and the trousers have no belt loops - God bless the United Kingdom . . .)
