Very classy and extremely well tailored. Where do you find good tailors these days?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.
