    This is fantastic. Like the polar opposite of what I think of when I think "AAS Outfit" -- and I rather like your usual wilder looks! -- but that is what makes it so effective. Deets on the suit?

    For the third time in my life, I tried wearing brown shoes with grey trousers today. The first two times, I only got a few blocks from my house and felt so awkward I went back to the house and changed to black shoes.

    Proving the third time's the charm (and one can get away with wearing anything in Hollywood) I managed to get through an entire day (so far) wearing brown shoes with grey trousers.

    Now I'm wondering how Clifton Webb felt about wearing brown shoes with grey trousers.

    Close up of the trousers, socks, and shoes.

    Thanks. The suit was an eBay score. Polo Ralph Lauren, Made in Italy, pants are high rise, double inward pleats, side adjusters, 2 inch cuffs. Had dinner tonight at the Polo Bar. Had to represent.

    Friday, and my first experience working with a new camera (the old one has been balky - constantly resetting itself). The new camera has greater sharpness of image, but we (Husband and I) are still learning its peculiarities, hence fewer than normal shots. I apologize.

    Suit - Paul Stuart/Phineas Cole
    Shirt - Ike Behar
    Tie - Charvet
    Braces - BB
    Cufflinks - Penhaligon's
    PS - Ashear
    Boots - Cheaney
    (Not shown, due to fuzzy photo - Overcoat - BB; scarf - Paul Stuart, Hat - Christys, via Fortnum & Mason)

    Photo quality is fantastic, as is the fit. I'd love to get deets on the camera.

    Thanks for the compliment on the attire, and the camera is a Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX10.

    The suit, tie, shirt, and shoes are superb as always. But....... I would want to know more about that picture on the wall of the woman looking into the mirror.

    The picture on the wall is a lithograph entitled "Between Life and Life", by the artist Will Barnet. The title, I believe, is derived from an Emily Dickinson poem.

    I've be studying the same picture.
    It's an interesting composition and signals solitude and lack companionship. She has to salute her mirror image; life and other people are an other place...
    I really like it; emotional charged. The picture of Crusty and husband in shelf is a important comment; there we see two who have found each other, but the woman in the litho has only/barely found herself. Maybe that's why she looks sad; no one is complete without a companion...

    Interesting insights. The juxtaposition of images was entirely accidental - the picture went over the sofa because it was the largest piece of art I own, and it fit the space best; the photo (from the Frick Museum Garden Party, 2015) was put on the etagere just because there was room for it there.
