Your jackets look to fit really well, but I dont recall seeing the backs, so I was just curious if you hit the RTW body type jackpot...
S&M cut fits me very well. I only take in the sides (but not from the back) to keep it as clean as possible. I only have this shot from another S&M jacket from the back.

Looks nice, I'm very jealous you can buy RTW so easily!

First off, welcome back Cleav - great to see your smiling face and your immaculate wardrobe gracing this thread again . . .

The weather in NYC today is misty - lightly raining earlier, now just very foggy (the Empire State Building, normally easily seen from my living room window, is now much obscured, and One World Trade has totally disappeared). Be that as it may, the heart wants what it wants, and today, it wanted to wear a waistcoat. Reaching into my closet for what was next in rotation that hadn't been worn in a while, I came across today's suit/waistcoat combo - bought at different times and on different continents, yet seeming to wed gracefully to one another.

It is also cool enough for me to wear a proper hat today - hurrah.

Suit - Paul Stuart/Phineas Cole
Waistcoat - Ede & Ravenscroft, London
Shirt - Hilditch & Key
Tie - Paul Stuart
Cufflinks - Benson & Clegg, London
Pocket square - Robert Talbott
Vintage watch chain
Boots - Paul Smith
Trilby - Laird, London
Face mask - New & Lingwood

Please tell us about the tie and the pocket square.
Tie is from a company I've never heard of here or anywhere else, Arcuri. I picked it up from Marcello Tarantino in Toronto when they were closing up their RTW a few years ago – apparently I picked their 3 nicest ties by feel alone during their "3 for $XX" sale. 3-fold grenadine, slightly gaudy slip stitch and bold silk inside. Relatively thick interlining that I can't do my usual double four-in-hand with.

Square is a double-faced silk from Isaia. Not much to say about this one really.

Went to the most logical place to vote, the Nimoy Studio at the Hammer Museum in Westwood Village this morning and voted.

Brooks Brothers wool and cashmere blend jacket, yellow OCBD shirt, and BB#1 stripe tie, Jim Thompson pocket square, Trafalgar alligator belt, Orvis corduroy trousers, and Allen-Edmonds shoes.

For fans of "Piece-Of-A-Person" pictures, a piece of a person with a pumpkin spice cookie at The Pain Quotient picture.

Might as well get the shoes in on the act, as they are a relic of the now long-gone Allen-Edmonds Made-To-Order program for Styleforum members.

We paid the regular retail price for any style (these are McAllisters) made in any material (these are Horween English Tan Dublin Leather)l and with any sole (these have Dainite soles) and with any optional extras (these have brass eyelets and split reverse welts) rather than the special order price.

Nice. I took the pocket square for wool or a wool-silk blend.
