The weather in NYC is nigh about perfect for suit wearing - cool enough for wearing something winter weight without fear of sweating to death. I have indulged today in a bit of wardrobe Russian roulette - attempting to wear something which I've not worn in a while, with the chance that it will fit. Today's outcome was not entirely successful - there was a minor issue with a brace button - but I was at least able to get the suit on (the travel taken so far this year has added some avoirdupois to my frame, which, with advancing age, seems to want to retain said weight, as if sensing an impending famine - grrrr . . .).

Travel will be the topic of conversation again soon. On May 5th, I am scheduled to take my first ocean voyage, a crossing on the Queen Mary 2. A longtime friend who resides in the UK is returning homewards, and in a total fit of caprice, I've booked my own cabin to accompany him on this trip. Cunard and the QM2 still attempt to evoke the glamor of a transatlantic crossing, pre WWII, with two "gala" nights (out of seven), and a dress code (albeit a rather loose one) for dinner in the dining rooms on the other five nights. I shall have to remain physically active for the duration of the crossing, as ocean travel is notorious for adding pounds to the waistline. We shall see . . .

In any case, photos below of this afternoon's sartorial exercise . . .

I think either a very slight taper or shorter length would really help the drape of the trousers. It makes an otherwise nice fit look slightly disheveled.
Good feedback. I'm going to wash them - I think they'll shrink a bit, and if that's not enough, get them hemmed.
