8°C today so I wear my DB Tweed coat the first time this season
Wow! Thank you!
@doncologne I like the houndstooth suspenders a lot Don, though they appear really wide. Or is that just an optical illusion? Can you share where you got them?
Suspenders are 1,25'' wide and you can get them here: http://www.thetiebar.com/product/SP031
Now, the rain, which we had avoided yesterday, has come to NYC in full force. I've simplified the wardrobe quite a bit from yesterday's extravagance.
Suit - BBGF Regent
Shirt - BB
Tie - Bloomingdale's house brand
Shoes - To Boot NY Adam Derrick

Thanks; they're chocolate suede double monks. In retrospect, they'd be more versatile if they were single monks and more coherent with "country" fits like yesterday's, but I bought them before I knew that.
I'll get a closeup of them next time I wear them. It won't be too long, since I only have a small shoe rotation.
POLL IS UP!
...I see that Garry Nelson has already posted an eligible fit. Could be dangerous...
A more rustic look today.
Gant - RLP - Henry Carter - TM Lewin - Panerai - Rodd & Gunn - Sartore - RM Williams
Jacket and pents look a little same-same in the top photo but not so much IRL (see 3rd shot). Maybe should have tried for more contrast but goddamnit I just really wanted to wear these cords.
n.b. tie and PS render the above fit ineligible for this week's Challenge.
They'll get a lot of wear as you pair them better. Gmmcl does suede monks well.
Either you are really tall or Crusty is much shorter than I had imagined...
Bernoulli is 6'5" - I am a mere 5'9".
