Go To Footwear, Yes, My Rubber Soled Boots...This is my go to footwear for the rain. They’ve been sprayed with waterproofing. They work great. I find my non suede shoes get water stains when wet. What do you wear in the rain?

And Yes, I've Gone This Far, 25 yrs Ago, When It Did Rain Here, And It Did, I Got Caught At The Office Late Night In A Downpour. I'm Wearing My Brand New, Unprotected Beige Tassels Butter Suede, These Things were Beautiful And I Walked 2 Blocks Too My Car In Grocery Bags On Each Foot With Suedes In Breifcase. After That I Stay Prepared, I've Not Worn A (Leather Sole) Dress Shoe In The Rain In Over 30yrs.

Dem Braces, Wow! Yes The Blue Shirt Really Works Well Here!The weather in NYC has cooled down, become sunny and quite dry - a perfect day in which to squeeze another wearing of what is ostensibly a winter suit - one of my newer acquisitions from the past sale season this year.
When laying out my clothes for today, I did want to avoid using a white shirt with this suit, only as I've worn this suit with white shirts exclusively, so far. I tried a couple of small-scale patterns - narrow stripes and graph checks - and did not care for the effect it had with the bold windowpane check of the suit, but a solid blue shirt seemed to do the trick nicely. It also provides a nice color contrast with the rust/orange of the tie, and the warm earthen colors of today's braces - their second wearing, and I've included a second photo in order to better show off their pattern.
I've also included a couple of shots of the very clear views of midtown and downtown Manhattan from my living room this morning
