The weather in NYC remains slightly cooler than average for this time of year, and is overcast now as well, affording me yet another opportunity to sneak in a fall/winter suit from the last sale season. Combined with it is my latest indulgence - yet another pair of braces from Albert Thurston, patterned with one of my sartorial obsessions, cufflinks. The combination of a checked shirt with a checked suit is an experiment on my part, one that I think has been reasonably successful, but I leave that judgment to the viewer.

Suit - Paul Stuart/Phineas Cole
Shirt - Tyrwhitt
Tie - Marino Gabri (purchased at discount sometime in the last millennium)
Braces - Albert Thurston
Cufflinks - Deakin & Francis, via Scully & Scully, NYC
Pocket square - Ralph Lauren Purple Label
Shoes - Crockett & Jones private label for Paul Stuart
Hat - Saks Fifth Avenue house brand
Face mask - New & Lingwood

In Holmby Park today. Prior to the pandemic there were giant cannas growing behind this beach that blocked the view of the trash cans.

Brooks Brothers Brookstweed jacket and tie, L L Bean blue and white University stripe OCBD shirt, Polo Ralph Lauren pocket square and argyle socks, Orvis Nantucket Red trousers, and (made in 1984) Allen-Edmonds saddle shoes.

Prior to 2013 there was a British blog called "Look At My Fucking Red Trousers" which classified all red trouser wearers as toffs, hipsters, lunatics, notable wearers, or in McDonald's. If the blog still existed and this picture ended up in the blog, hope I would be classified in with the toffs.


Since the belt doesn't show in the picture, and since (as is often the case) the belt didn't match the shoes, here's the belt. It's a Vineyard Vines belt.

I sincerely hope that you achieve "toffdom" if that is what you desire. 🤣

As much as I enjoy posting things that I hope most of you despise, I try to stick within the subject boundaries of the thread. This post may appear to be a bit too controversial at first glance, so let me try to justify it.

I recently had a conversation with a friend of mine that just opened up a shop on Savile row and we were talking about the different measures of creativity in the field of making clothes in such a conservative niche within the fashion industry. Many posters here are constantly trying to combat people’s individual tastes with their fiery rage fuelled by traditionalism. I often like to think that I’m balancing on a wire between the two. I respect the foundations of classic tailoring, though I’m constantly looking to follow through on new out-of-the-box ideas.

Especially, due to this pandemic, classic menswear is potentially facing extinction; at least in these cultures (such as Toronto) in which the sense of occasion has already been hanging on by a thread.

Anyways, with my attempts to keep tailoring relevant enough to survive the rotation of a continuously more casual world of leggings and sweatpants; I’ve been pairing tailoring a lot with my own stupid, personally-satisfying bespoke commissions and vintage athletic gear:

And because you can’t get a more tailored outfit than that which actually comes directly from a bespoke workshop, I included a picture with my newest project:

If you had a staff, you’d pretty much be Moses.

I think it all kind of works so not out of place at all. That yellow casentino wool overcoat is maybe where I would draw the line
