Your Belgian loafers are quite handsome - wear them in good health!X-post from the FC 'Smart with a Face Mask?'
The mask is from John Simons and I am wearing my first pair of Belgian loafers today from Berwick 1707, also on their maiden voyage:

TASSEKSThe weather has continued warm and quite unbearably humid in NYC, and, due to a minor but vital mechanical failure on the part of my stationary bike on Monday this week (one of the pedals fell off - a replacement set in in the works), I have had to replace my previously private sessions of sweatiness with public ones, substituting walking around Manhattan for biking in place. This has thrown my daily schedule off a bit (hence the lateness of this post), but has brought the occasional dividend, as yesterday, in my travels, I passed by Paul Stuart's, where the window displays were being changed. I took this as a sign that preparations were underway for the store (and others like them) to re-open in some fashion - a welcome portent.
For today, my exertions were all of a practical nature - grocery shopping, entirely on foot. Returning home after my third foray of the morning, there was nothing I wanted more than to clean up, and dress up, in a relaxed manner apropos of a Friday. Recycling yesterday's shirt, and digging through the archives, below is what I concocted for my attire for the afternoon.
Sports jacket - Paul Stuart/Phineas Cole
Shirt & trousers - Brooks Brothers
Tie - Polo Ralph Lauren
Pocket square - Robert Talbott
Shoes - Bergdorf Goodman house brand

Amazing and very, very elegant. Do you really go out like this every day? Not that I don't like the look, it is fantastic, but how is the reaction of people around you?Morning Dress handmade C. 1915. It has become the most common outfit I wear. I have 14 Morning Dress "Suits" and this is my favourite even though the 2 buttons makes it more dated or vintage looking. Still elegant as ever to my own eyes. I am having my first bespoke Morning Dress made so I can wear it comfortably in the middle of the summer heat when it arrives. I will post pics when it is finished.View attachment 1397709View attachment 1397710View attachment 1397713
Nice look. Can I ask what size suit you wear please?Today afternoon i had the chance to listen to a one-to-one concert, which means one musician, one listener. This is an initiative of the local philharmonic orchestra to keep some concert culture alive during corona. "My" musician performed
a violin sonata from Telemann.
The sun was shining, the weather was fantastic and the view was great. This was a chance to wear a summer suit.
Taking pictures during the musical performance was not allowed.

Yes. Locals are used to me and don't give me a second look or just give a friendly compliment. Most people who know me never comment on my clothes. Unless I am in soccer clothes which is shocking to them. They don't realize I play soccer.Amazing and very, very elegant. Do you really go out like this every day? Not that I don't like the look, it is fantastic, but how is the reaction of people around you?
