The weather in NYC has cooled off a bit, allowing one to indulge in fabrics heavier than linen and tropical weight wool. This has given me the chance to give my newest suit a proper maiden voyage. As the suit is from New & Lingwood, and because I can, I have tried to put together as many items from N & L in this outfit as I could - just to see if it could be done.

My husband and I are also celebrating our fifth wedding anniversary today, with dinner out this evening, and when one dines out in NYC these days, one is literally "out" - today's flannel might come in handy with the temperature drop at sunset.

Suit, tie, braces and face mask - New & Lingwood
Shirt - Chester Barrie via Austin Reed (both entities now defunct, alas)
Cufflinks - custom made - British Columbian jade on 14k gold
Pocket square - Brooks Brothers
Shoes - Florsheim Royal Imperial (Magnanni manufacture)

Congratulations on your anniversary 🥂

Austin Reed still exists but only online - sad...my friend worked in many of their London stores in the good old days.

Happy Anniversary. That suit looks great on you. Does that tie match the Dinner jacket you modeled a few weeks ago? :slayer:

That is a lovely jacket! Not feeling the shoes together with that autumnal/wintery outfit. I would have chosen something sturdier.

Thank you, Knightley. Here are two shots from the afternoon and evening - one in the Greco-Roman galleries at the Metropolitan Museum, and the other at dinner, outside at the Leopard at des Artistes.

Thank you, Acute, for the compliment and the good wishes. The tie is the same general colorway as the dinner jacket, though I believe the necktie fabric has a bit of yellow in it, whereas the dinner jacket does not.
