Even on Fridays, dressed like this, I’m still less casual than the people that surround me.
STYLE. COMMUNITY. GREAT CLOTHING.

Yes indeed, good memory. One of my favorite parts of visiting my in-laws upstate, which necessitates a train from Penn Station, is the walk across town and a quick pop into JJ's to see what they had kicking around the backroom for under $100. Now, I have over a dozen hats and hardly an occasion to wear them, and to boot, I haven't been to the office since March! But yes, I'm familiar with that shoppe and that's a great choice you made.Eli I remember you used to take selfies in the lobby of a building on Lexington?
I got this hat from JJs on 5th Avenue at about 32nd Street. You’ve got to try hats on to see if they suit you and when I found this style (Bowery) and size over time I got the same hat in gold, raspberry, dusty blue (in pic) sage green and coffee brown. Made in Ecuador. I think JJs is having a sale on now. I’m not sure if they still stock this exact hat in so many colours but they have similar Panamas in that colour range. Nothing wrong with a traditional Panama in beige - my first was a beige and it came from there when I was in NYC to see The Who at MSG in 2002 - but I like the extra dimension of having them in non traditional colours. Also they sell hat bands for a tenner so if you don’t like the ribbon it comes with you can do as I did here and customise it easily enough!
Always so smart...As stated in my previous post, I went to my local Saks Fifth Avenue to pick up my latest sartorial farrago, a navy velvet jacket, a sartorial "crime of opportunity" (i.e. the jacket was heavily marked down). On getting it home, I decided to try wearing in three different ways - casual, semi-dressed up, and somewhere approximating formal. The results are as shown below - the jury is still out as to how versatile this jacket will be . . .
