Today, dragged myself off the sick-bed...
^^^^ For dragging yourself off the sick bed, Cleav, you look mighty fine, sir.
Also, it seems that, in a very small field, I've won the Friday Challenge. (Accidents do happen.) I am up for suggestions as to this upcoming week's challenge theme - make your suggestions known, before I make a decision as to this matter - the sooner, the better.
As for myself, it's Tuesday - monsoon season here in NYC, and the second three-piece suit of the week. As it is, I'm taking my staff from work out for a holiday lunch, so I thought I should look as if I can afford the check.

You're most kind Upr. Tis only man flu and everyone else is out for the day so I've no audience to play to
Looking your customary distinguished self today, if I may so!
Very much, this.
Executing a light blue tie is a skill I've yet to master. I want to like them, and I have several. But I just can't seem to do it as well as is done here -- particularly impressed with how dark the suit is in contrast to the tie; my instinct is always to pair light with light.
Edit: Cleav: That tie is excellent.
Thanks GMac, I appreciate that! In addition I must echo those comments in praise of your most recent post
V nice, Cleav. Especially the tie.
Just the one pic today:
I feel less gloomy than I look...
Thanks man, I appreciate that. Nice to have you back BTW
I like the color and pattern combination here. The shoes are an especially good choice. However, this isn't so well-proportioned as some of what you've posted. My preference is for trousers that aren't quite so skinny (those could be an inch wider through the leg and still count as slim), but I think they pretty objectively don't work with the strong-shoulder, medium gorge, none-too-trim jacket.
You posted a different sportcoat rig a while back with a light-colored plaid jacket which looked good with skinny trousers, but that was a very close-fitting jacket with a high lapel gorge.
Hope you don't mind the the feedback. I like your overcoat, BTW.
