Thanks jiredell,

It's just a separate light weight jacket. I got it at Nordstroms and it wasn't part of a suit. It looks ridiculously short in this picture, but it isn't that way IRL. Kind of a modern/younger fit though.

I actually had those shoes soled, they originally had a rubber soles. I have several pairs of green leather shoes, and blue. What can I say?

I REALLY appreciate the feedback. Newbs(like me) can learn a lot here. There's a magic quality when I post here, I can see much more clearly what doesn't look right almost immediately. This thread amplifies the defects.

Quick question on jacket lengths please as it’s mentioned above
I was told some years ago that it you put your arm down by your side, then clench your hand, that where the jacket length should be
any other options please.
thanks

The sun has returned to NYC, and the weather is mild enough to dispense with an overcoat, hat, or scarf.

As AAS suggested recently, our time of public health enforced house arrest could be gainfully used for the review of our collective wardrobes, in order to see what should be "de-accessioned" (i.e. find its way to the local thrift store). Today's choice of attire reflects that review, for me, at least.

Today's suit was acquired well in excess of 10 years ago, when I was a somewhat larger gentleman, and has been altered to fit my more current size, a process through which I've been with several suits, and with repetition, I find that the results less and less satisfactory. Today's suit was initially closer to my current size than had been some other suits that have passed out of my possession, but it still looks (to me, at least) as if it were not quite my right size (certainly, the shoulders are wider than our my shoulders at present). The jacket is also a bit long by current standards, and the trousers a bit full (and a bit long, reflective of the shrinkage of my cartilage with the aging process).

I've not had occasion to wear today's suit since a friend's wedding last July, so removing it from the rotation will hardly leave me bereft of clothing options.

But, that being said, my attire for the day is more than adequate to insulate me from the outside elements, though more than a bit much for the activities available at this time due to the health emergency. However, donning the suit makes me feel better - mental health is important too, in this time of crisis.

Suit - Brooks Brothers Golden Fleece Regent
Shirt - Brooks Brothers
Tie - Damiano Presta, Rome
Cufflinks - Metropolitan Museum of Art
Pocket square - Harvie & Hudson, London
Shoes - Harris, via Barney's, NYC

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
