If you don't like today's fit, blame Pingson - he was the inspiration for me to drag out a three-piece from the archives . . .

The temperatures in NYC, after a major bout of rain, have lowered themselves a bit, making today's attire possible.

Suit and tie - BB
Shirt - PRL
PS - Robert Talbott
Cufflinks - Niletti Creations
Boots - Paul Stuart

Mimo. It is a routine. In very second hand or vintage shop I pass, here i Stockholm or elesewhere in the world, I take a quick look. Sometimes the gold nuggets are there.

Thank Pingson!  That is awesome, Mr Crust - and those boots really make it.  Never mind the temperature; where I work it's in the 70s or 80s on a cool day, and 100-120+ for most of the year, so I had a few three piece suits made in linen, half lined, with a very light baste for wear-ability on the hottest days.  There's nothing sharper than a three piece IMHO.  You really look great down the the last detail - watch chain included.

Concentrating on texture today. The only thing I haven't worn here before is the tie, which is a 1960s thing made from Scottish wool by some long-forgotten French boutique. The fabric is really thick so this is the smallest knot I can get...

 

Sock and shoe spoiler... (Click to show)

So I was lying and it wasn't all about texture, there's some colour too! The shirt has a purple line and there are hints of purple in the tie too, but the only place where I've gone full on with some colour is the socks and the laces. Some people will hate this, but I can't help my foppish tendencies...

That's a beautiful suit, Mr Monkey.  We have a similar foppishness about changed laces and bright socks.  Actually, aside from your "ticket inspector" red jacket experiment (maybe only escapes the "uniform" thing if it's with jeans?), I rather identify with your taste.  But you're slimmer, and I have better manners. ;)

+1. He's my new favourite poster. I wish I could find the kind of vintage stuff he finds.

 

And, for clarinetplayer and EFV - this is about as close-up as I can comfortably get of today's tie:

Well thanks! I am grateful as well, as I really enjoy the look of a three-piece suit..

Well, no three-piece today, but since we're experiencing temps in the low 10Cs, layered clothing it will be nonetheless.

A little more sobriety from me today, and yes my shirt collar is of a more conventional style today...I still like the other one though!

Cufflinks commemorate England regaining the Ashes for the first time since 1987.
