As a dad, I'm fine with the loafers as a show of solidarity with the little man's boat shoes. Your kid's comfort and confidence is always paramount to your own fit. Great parenting in this photo shoot. 👏
Thanks. :crackup:Little dude was not having it this year. The only way he would take a picture with us is if we let him hold the remote and he pushed the button. Otherwise, he just wanted to play in the dirt.

I remember that day! I was such a newbie. Years later, I commissioned a suit with the same pattern, as I have always been in awe of how it looks on you, but the suit rarely sees the light of day. Not the first (or last) time I have been inspired by your wardrobe to fill my own.

The weather, after being sunny and cold this morning, has turned greyer as the day has worn on here in NYC.

After an early morning shoeshine, exercise, and an early lunch, my day peaked with a visit to my dentist, for a routine cleaning. After the cleaning, my dentist informed me that one of my second molars is loose, and recommended a complex and expensive-sounding set of procedures to correct this condition.

As the old adage goes, "When the going gets tough, the tough go shopping." Drowning my anticipated fiscal sorrows, I visited Paul Stuart, which, of course, brought on a much more pleasant set of anticipated fiscal sorrows - depending on the sale price of a particular item, when their semi-annual sale is announced. More on that news as things progress. I did have the pleasure of the undivided attention of my salesperson and Ralph Auriemma, the creative director for Stuart's, showing me virtually every suit in the Phineas Cole line. What was remarkable was how different fabrications of the same model suit would look and fit differently - a lesson only to be learned in the here and now, not using a photo on a web site.

Meanwhile, for today, I opted to bring another winter-weight suit into rotation. I believe that I bought this suit eight years ago, in London, in the company of fellow poster Bernoulli - the first of many sartorial adventures with the gentleman. It was an auspicious start for today's suit.

Suit - New & Lingwood
Shirt - Tyrwhitt
Tie - Drake's
Cufflinks - Deakin & Francis
Braces - Lewin
Shoes - Finsbury, Paris
Overcoat - Adolfo
Hat - Lock, London
Scarf & face mask - New & Lingwood

Woke up late and did not have time to choose things carefully. I just wanted the outfit to be distinct, and I think I achieved that.

Leaving aside the shawl lapel for the moment, I dont think this works. The vest/ sweater combo looks weird, and the rib in the sweater kind of clashes with the stripe in the suit. I also think the tones of the blue vs grey dont work here. It just doesnt look very good to my eye, not that you are all that interested in my opinion.

I think you could lose the vest and sub a black tactineck in there and it would look better.

I snipped off a loose button today and stitched it back on the way I've seen fancy Italian tailors do it and that was pretty much the highlight of my week.

Great look. Just two minor things: First, side flaps on the jacket in or out? Choose one. Second, the picture is so blown out at the light end of the histogram that I can't tell if this is a button down or spread collar shirt. Given the business vibe of chalk stripes, I'm hoping it's the latter.

I noticed that afterwards. I had just stuck my mask in my pocket as we were about to head out and didn't realize the flap was in.

Don't worry, I fixed it on the way out.
