Day 3 of summer suit week. I choose violence. Four piece PRL patchwork madras. And no, I don’t have a patchwork madras tie.

I should title this posting "Christmas in July", or, more accurately, "What I bought myself for Christmas in July" - two recent purchases - the boots and the tie - which, having an idle hour this evening, I decided to try on in context, i.e. with an outfit that plausibly shows them off to some advantage. Obviously, the heat and humidity of a New York City summer are getting to me, but my folly is of a harmless and benign nature, so please be indulgent.

Suit - New & Lingwood
Shirt - Hilditch & Key
Tie - Charvet, via Saks Fifth Avenue (a "crime of opportunity", i.e. deeply discounted)
Cufflinks - Corcione, Napoli
Braces - Albert Thurston
Pocket square - Harvie & Hudson, London
Boots - J. Fitzpatrick
Hat - Lock, London

Following @upr_crust, the best of us all is a tall order, but I claim greatness by association as the tie was his gift. Today, I chose one of my two or three favorite suits, even if it displays the results of some weird choices. Braces are my favorite, as I just love Greek mythology.

Suit: Spier & Mackay
Shirt: Luxire
Tie: Shibumi Firenze
PS: B. Cuccinelli
Socks: Pantherella
Shoes: Vass
Watch: Longines La Grande Classique L4.908.1

Burgundy socks to match the shoes and tie. PS is grey. Uncuffed trousers. I feel like an outlaw.

That's some serious old-school style. Well done! I keep thinking I should get some boots like that (probably in brown, though), but I keep having a hard time seeing when I would actually end up wearing them. Too many sports coats, too few suits these days...
