It may be Fall but it's over 100F in some parts of Los Angeles today.

At the front gate of Moraga Vineyards on Moraga Drive in the Bel Air part of Los Angeles. Thousands of cars drive past here every day on the 405 Freeway and don't even realize there is a vineyard and winery here.

Brooks Brothers blue blazer, anemia pink PPBD shirt, and mini houndstooth tan cotton trousers, F. R Tripler tie, Lands' End pocket square (made from the remains of a Lands' End Madras shirt), and Allen-Edmonds tan suede shoes.

For fans of "Piece-Of-A-Person" pictures, a piece of a person picture where the shirt, tie, and pocket square show better.

For those who just can't get enough "Piece-Of-A-Person" pictures, a piece of a person picture where the trousers and shoes show better.

Same way I stayed cool when I was in Arizona for eight months in 2018 and it was often 115F or hotter.

When I was a little kid growing up in Los Angeles in the late forties and the fifties it was often much hotter in the summer than it is now and there was very little air conditioning. Still don't like air conditioning and never use it.

First day wearing heavier fabrics. Sport coat is burgundy with brown undertones. Difficult to depict in pics.

As always, your look, fabrics and fit are impeccable. Well done! If I could offer one small suggestion after seeing a couple of your posts, your ties are about 5-6" too long, since the blades should ideally hit at the center of your waist band. Suggest buying shorter ties in the future, and for your current ones, go to an expert like Tie Crafters in NYC and have them shortened. It's where I send my ties and they do a fabulous job (they're also pros at cleaning ties without ruining the fabric).
