A late day posting. My husband and I are attending a members' preview at the Whitney this evening. Now, the demographic of your average attendee to one of these wingdings is much younger and more hip than me, and in deciding how to dress for this evening, I could have made concessions to the aesthetic of the new Whitney's location - that painfully fashionable (or fashionably painful) former industrial area known as the "meatpacking district". However, that is not a form of social costume that I can successfully don. I have gone in the opposite direction, opting for the fogiest of ensembles, a form of sartorial expression with which I have much greater familiarity.

Suit and braces - New & Lingwood, London
Shirt & tie - Brooks Brothers
Cufflinks - The Wallace Collection, London
Pocket square - Harvie & Hudson
Vintage watch chain
Boots - Paul Stuart house brand
Overcoat - Paul Stuart/Phineas Cole
Scarf - Paul Stuart
Hat - Lock

I think you've made the right choice. You'll look like a VIP and the hipsters will look like, uh, hipsters.

Thank you for your concern, but be aware that my first husband died more than 10 years ago, and I am happily remarried. Still it doesn't make smoking any cooler a lethal habit.
I taught pulmonary physiology at medical school for many years. It is well established that all the contents of cigs are bad. In particular the free radical products (eg. nitrous oxide) attack the lining of alveoli, destroying the most delicate structure in our body. When you combine that with the ability of nicotine to create addiction, you got a deadly combo. The good news is that is also well established that if you quit, no matter when, your life is prolonged.

Great look, just one tweak: relace your shoes with the formal, business-style bar lacing pattern; you can find videos on line that will guide you through the process. You're using the over-under pattern that's for athletic shoes.

.
That's a load.
Bar lacing is neither formal nor business-style. It's just a crazy way of lacing that makes it difficult to tighten the laces and to tie your shoe. And you made that up about criss-cross lacing being just for athletic shoes, right? That method predates athletic shoes by a hundred or more years.

* Bytom coat
* suit by Krupa & Rzeszutko
* Osovski shirt
* tie and ps from Poszetka
* TLB Mallorca shoes
Very well put together. Top marks for the shirt; contrast pin collar with blue stripes. Classic. Prince of wales checked suit with the mustard tie. Really like how the pocket square draws the eye back to the collar, which is the central piece here. Tough finding an off the rack shirt that ticks all the features displayed . I sure hope it's a double cuffed shirt!

1. It's (bar) not hard to tighten laces. 2. It looks cleaner than over-under. But am happy that you're happy with your laces the way they are.
