The weather in NYC remains mild, dry and sunny, for today at least, with predictions for hotter, more humid weather coming as early as tomorrow. Thus, the window of opportunity for wearing today's ensemble comfortably is today.

As I have said before, a three-piece linen suit is something of a logical absurdity, but a very attractive one nonetheless, and my Facebook account has been spitting out memories of me wearing today's suit, giving me the itch to wear it, before the weather turns so hot and humid that the thought of long trousers is unbearable, never mind a waistcoat. As I am unconstrained by employment from wearing whatever happens to come to mind, I am indulging that luxury to the full.

Suit, shirt, and tie - Brooks Brothers
Cufflinks - Saks Fifth Avenue
Pocket square - Harvie & Hudson, London
Vintage watch chain
Shoes - Santoni, via Saks Fifth Avenue
Hat - Christys, via Thomas Farthing, London
Face mask - New & Lingwood

Thursday June 17th is National Seersucker Day.

Seersucker comes from India and has the word "suck" in it, so went someplace that sucks and had a Chicken Curry Pie.

All Brooks Brothers except for a Squarextraordinaire pocket square and Allen-Edmonds shoes.

Once again showing how undarted seersucker jackets look better than darted seersucker jackets.

How do I dress down one of the most conservative types of suits around? Patch pockets, museum calf blue shoes (which look black from a distance), a grenadine/shantung tie, and a touch of color in the PS. For once, I quite like the results of all this messing around (and the drape of the suit helps). Let's see if you agree.

I wish all my suits fitted like this. I chose a muted attire because the shirt is not easy to incorporate in an ensemble but I like it. And I know I am repeating myself but my tie is cooler than yours (no, I don't agree with his politics but I got it from a friend who is a Senator in Italy).

Classic ‘serious’ tie. Quite apart from politics / personality, Berlusconi like most Italian politicians did sober business dress impeccably.

The weather in NYC is warming up from yesterday, such that I am down to only two pieces in linen from yesterday's three. Otherwise, today's attire was put together around today's jacket, and whatever could be scrounged from the archives that hadn't been worn in a while - fitting for a relaxing Friday.

Sports jacket, shoes, and cap - Paul Stuart
Shirt - Ike Behar
Trousers - Brooks Brothers
Tie - no name brand
Cufflinks - Penhaligon's
Pocket square - Robert Talbott
