A special weekend edition, for me. In NYC, we are, at present, still restricted to outdoor dining, which usually means that one dines in an unheated, or unevenly heated temporary space outside of a restaurant, normally built on the sidewalk or in the street. However, one restaurant (of which I know), La Grande Boucherie, is located inside of a permanent outdoor arcade, running through an entire north/south block, with heat curtains at each end of the arcade, making the outdoor space virtually as comfortable as indoor space. Needless to say, the place has become very popular during lockdown.

My husband and I decided to dine there this evening. My husband, who works from home, has been itching for an occasion for which to dress, and to eat dinner under nearly "normal" conditions (i.e. without freezing one's ass off) seemed as good an excuse as any to get dressed up.

My husband prefers to be behind, not in front of the camera, but I at least documented what I wore this evening for dinner.

Suit, braces, and face mask - New & Lingwood
Shirt - Brooks Brothers MTM
Tie - Paul Stuart
Cufflinks - Deakin & Francis, via Scully & Scully, NYC
Pocket square - no name brand
Boots - Cheaney
Overcoat - Adolfo
Scarf - Fortnum & Mason
Cap - Saks Fifth Avenue house brand

Note that I wore a flat cap instead of a proper hat for a very practical purpose - knowledge that the coat check would most likely not be available, and not wishing to wear a fedora during dinner, I wore the cap, which folded nicely into the scarf pocket of my overcoat, along with the scarf.

Forgive me, as you are always well dressed and I enjoy your posts immensely, but the pattern matching on that suit jacket is pretty poor. Did they try to alter the sleeves from the shoulder?

What's interesting to me is that the horizontal elements line up pretty well with the body of the jacket. It seems like whoever made it actively chose to line up the pattern there.
