Love the Merc! :worship2: Good choice on color combo's with the white and red brakes. Oh and nice outfit too.
Thank you very much, for an AMG Mercedes red or gold breaks are the default.

The weather in NYC has returned to spring-appropriate temperatures, and the sun is out, allowing one to dress without fear that one's dry cleaner will suddenly become richer.

As it is, over this weekend, a surprise package arrived at our house, a gift from a good and very generous friend, containing a pair of boots for both myself and my husband, our first pairs of Cobbler Union shoes for either of us. The boots have proved comfortable straight out of the box, and, for me, will get their first road test later on this afternoon.

Searching around my closet for a suit that would complement these boots, the next suit in rotation happened to be this dark brown flannel - perhaps a bit hefty to wear on a sunny spring day, but without a hat, it should not be much too much insulation, and a good match for the boots.

Suit - Paul Stuart/Phineas Cole
Shirt - Lewin
Tie - Joseph A. Bank
Braces - Albert Thurston, via Paul Stuart
Cufflinks - Victoria & Albert Museum, London
Pocket square - New & Lingwood
Boots - Cobbler Union

Even though I'm not quite back in the office just yet (still one dose to go), it was such a nice day today I decided to put on some Springtime getup for a video hearing. The suit is a cool, lightweight cotton/cashmere/silk blend (which I think is a pretty unusual composition).

Trying out some linen and a new hat, an Optimo version of a Stetson Stratoliner. This particular hat is made from a vintage body that was a singleton, possibly a left-over from an earlier Optimo model. Regardless, it was just the right color that I was looking for. Add a vintage gold-colored binding and ribbon and I think it came out rather well. Now, if I can only cease messing up the bash, I'll be in good shape.

The weather here has been crazy. On Sunday we had 15 degC, bright sunshine and cooked Iberico Secreto outside on the bbq. Today it is 6 degC high (-3 tonight) and we have seen snow. Winter wardrobe was inevitable.

I’m not one for fit pics as I loathe being on this side of the camera, but I’ll celebrate grabbing something at least vaguely wearable after being given a two minute warning to get dressed and head out to get my first vaccine jab today. I expected to wait months for my turn, so I was lounging around unshowered in pyjamas this afternoon when my wife yelled at me to put on pants and head over to the oddly Soviet chic vaccination centre on the other side of town :)

Pictured: Valstar hopsack field jacket, Eton shirt, Valentino trousers and Alfred Sargent suede derbies.

Not pictured: Christopher Cloos aviators, and the Alpina pilot watch that timed my entry and exit at an incredibly efficient (for Mongolia) 45 minutes.

Partially pictured on the balcony: one of the hero nurses being paid far too little to give out endless shots while dashingly kitted out in scrubs.

The weather continues to be sunny and mild here in NYC, thus encouraging me to "overdress" for the day. Today's footwear has recently been resoled using J Rendenbach soles - my first experience with them. I shall see how long-lasting they will be - if they are worthy of the hype.

Otherwise, my accessorization today has been driven by a friend's Facebook group for menswear, in which he declared this week "turquoise week" - today's tie, pocket square, and cufflinks are as close to that color as I own. I shall see if it is sufficient - today's colors please me, in any case.

Today's suit I've had for nearly a decade, and marks the beginning of my move away from Brooks Brothers to Paul Stuart's. At the time of its purchase, I was looking to replace a black/white POW glen plaid suit from Brooks with a newer model, but, that season, Brooks wasn't carrying black/white POE glen plaid suits, forcing me to search further afield. Had I not moved on to Stuart's then, Brooks might have held a tighter grip onto a long-time customer. That is how the retail crumbles . . .

Suit - Paul Stuart
Shirt - Dunhill
Tie - Brooks Brothers
Cufflinks - David Donohue, via Saks Off Fifth
Braces - Albert Thurston, via Paul Stuart
Pocket square - Ashear
Shoes - Magnanni for Florsheim Royal Imperial
Face mask - New & Lingwood
