Some eight days ago, my normal morning exercise routine was disrupted by the breaking of one of the pedals of my stationary bike (yes, I know, a first-world problem). Awaiting a suitable replacement set of pedals, for morning aerobic stimulation, I have been walking the streets of Manhattan, which has up until recently, been an interesting study in urban planning.

Today, however, it was a depressing sight. I took one of my more usual routes, northwards from Murray Hill up either Fifth or Madison Avenues to the Upper East Side. What I saw was a growing sea of plywood covers for plate glass windows, either as proactive protection, or as reaction to having been looted. I can understand righteous anger in the face of injustice, but using that as an excuse to loot Chanel discredits the just cause of the anger, and plays into the hate of those who hate and would discredit you.

End of lecture.

With my wardrobe, I try to make a conscious effort to cycle through everything that I own - certainly my shirt collection. One end of my rack of shirts are those that haven't been worn in a long time, usually because they take some creative effort to coordinate with an outfit. Today's shirt is one of those.

Suit - Paul Stuart/Phineas Cole
Shirt - Hilditch & Key
Tie - Brooks Brothers
Cufflinks - Metropolitan Museum of Art
Braces - New & Lingwood
Pocket square - Harvie & Hudson
Shoes - Alden

Very nice. I have a very similar shirt, although the collar and cuffs are not white, and it has a slightly more purple hue. I have a very difficult time pairing it with anything and rarely wear it. This looks from you is a good example of how to wear it.

Agree with your frustration, Crusty. Saw the same in Colombia in December. Always some hooligans that will use the opportunity to vandalize.

Today jacket and shirt from Whitcomb & Shaftesbury, trousers from Harvie & Hudson - shoes are Loake....

I love your fit pictures and think you put together some great combinations. You also have a personal style that you make work really well. I think you are quite tall from memory, so my only criticism (not that you asked or need my opinion) is that I wish your jackets were an inch or 2 longer and the button position were lower. Thanks for sharing!

Normally, I would like to think of myself as a sane, rational being. With the state of the weather today in NYC (threatening rain, even as I write), the state of the city (still in lockdown, though it seems that private construction is moving forward), and the state of the nation's psyche (in turmoil), there is no earthly reason for me to dressed at all, other than to obey the local decency laws, and as protection from Mother Nature.

However, the heart wants what it wants, and today, I wanted to wear an outfit that made me happy. Will it be seen by anyone, outside of my immediate household and the readers of this forum? Most likely no. Do I care? Not a whit.

Suit - Paul Stuart/Phineas Cole
Shirt - Tyrwhitt
Tie - Charvet, via Bergdorf Goodman
Cufflinks - Deakin & Francis, via New & Lingwood
Braces - Albert Thurston, via New & Lingwood
Pocket square - Robert Talbott (close up of overall pattern included)
Shoes - Paul Stuart house brand

How does it differ from his work on your English Cut suits?
Tom has made many outfits for me, and they are all like second skin. The fit is superb.
When I put them on, its like they just cooperate with my body, and they make me look more flattering than I do in real life. Like elegance with an ease.
And they are all full of details, like pattern matching, hand stitching, but first of all is the fit - he just gets it spot on.

This suit, from the early Redmayne periode, it's like it's not made for me.
It feels awkward and the details are rather under his level. Almost no handwork, and the feel is like rtw, and not so very proper done.
I had it returned, and altered - something that happend to no other suit I have from him - but still it's not what i supposed.
Well, even a genious can have a bad day, and I have still admiration for his work.
