The weather today in NYC has cooled off a bit from yesterday's very summery 30C/86F, making the donning of a suit a pleasure rather than a torture.

Around this time of year, the Frick Collection, a museum which I patronize, normally has a garden party for its members, a very colorful event, but one that has not been able to take place since 2019, although not for COVID, but for the multi-year project of refurbishing the museum (much of the infrastructure dates from its opening as a museum in 1935). Today's attire reflects what I might have worn to the garden party, were it able to be held today.

Suit - Joseph Abboud
Shirt - Brooks Brothers MTM
Tie & pocket square - Brooks Brothers
Cufflinks - Tyrwhitt
Vintage watch chain
Shoes - Carmina, on the Simpson last
Hat - Peter Grimm

The weather in NYC is only moderately warm this afternoon, with low humidity, so I am able to sneak in a full suit today, rather than something more casual. By tomorrow, however, temperatures are predicted to hit 32C/89F - a sign of summer unwelcome at this early date.

Suit & shoes - Paul Stuart
Shirt - Brooks Brothers
Tie - Turnbull & Asser
Cufflinks - DVVS, NYC (now defunct)
Braces - Lewin
Pocket square - Harvie & Hudson

In Palisades Park in Santa Monica enroute to Ye Olde King's Head to get an Eccles Cake on a cold (by local standards) and windy (by any standards) day.

Brooks Brothers tweed jacket and tie, L L Bean blue OCBD shirt, Lyle & Scott Fair Isle sweater vest, generic pocket square, Lands' End trousers, Eddie Bauer Argyle socks, and Allen-Edmonds suede shoes.

For fans of "Piece-Of-A-Person pictures, a rather windblown piece of a person with an Eccles Cake at Ye Olde King's Head picture.

Although we can sit inside again there were lots of people sitting outside in the wind at almost every restaurant I walked past.

As is often the case on windy days napkins, like the answer, were blowing in the wind.
