Below please find a selection of photos from the Frick Autumn Dinner, from last night (2021/10/18), along with a URL for the professional agency which sent one of several photographers to the event, and which as posted two photos of me (both making me look rather grimly old - the lighting was rather harsh - but beggars can't be choosers, I guess). I was photographed by a photographer from the NY Times as well, but have not, to date, found her photos on line.

Tickets to look at the Icons Of Darkness pop-up in the Hollywood Highland Center are $30.00. I didn't get a ticket.

Hollywood Blvd was still closed this morning since they were clearing things up from a premiere at the El Capitan Theater last night.

Today is a tale of one city, but two outfits. This noontime, I spent 90 minutes in the dentist's chair, as he filled my root canals; this evening, I will be posing as a member of New York society (of which I am an entertaining imposter, at best) at the Frick Autumn Dinner. Two outfits, one day.

Daytime:

Leather jacket - Andrew Marc
Polo shirt - Brooks Brothers
Levi's 511's
Magnanni boots

Evening:

Evening jacket - New & Lingwood
Tuxedo shirt - Brooks Brothers
Tie - Seigo, NYC
Stud set - Deakin & Francis, London
Vintage cummerbund
Tuxedo trousers - Ede & Ravenscroft
Shoes - Magnanni for Saks Fifth Avenue
Topcoat & scarf - Turnbull & Asser
Homburg - Selentino
Face mask - New & Lingwood

Where can I get a jacket like that?
This is amongst the most beautiful things I've seen on this forum so far.

Thank you. The jacket is from New & Lingwood, from their New York branch (Lexington and 70th/71st Sts.). I am sure that, if you contact them, they would be more than willing to discuss the creation of a jacket similar to mine, which, I believe, was a made-to-measure commission (though not for me).

Thank you for your reply. They do not have anything alike in their online store at the moment. Their dressing gowns look amazing as well.

Should I ever have some spare money for something like this or should I ever visit NY again I will remember your kind advice.

Today is sunny and pleasantly mild here in NYC, and I've a full day ahead of me, packing this morning for a nine-day sojourn to Chicago tomorrow, then meeting an old friend for lunch and a visit to the Whitney, then a promotional event at New & Lingwood early this evening. I'm overdressed for the meatpacking district, but have attired myself for this evening's entertainment, as I am unsure how long my afternoon will be.

Since I'm taking advantage of New & Lingwood's hospitality, the least I could do is wear at least one of their products.

Suit - New & Lingwood
Shirt - Brooks Brothers
Tie - Chipp
Cufflinks - Penhaligon's
Braces - Albert Thurston
Pocket square - Harvie & Hudson
Shoes - Septieme Largeur
