The weather in NYC is, for today, relatively mild and dry, albeit overcast, though, by the first hours of 2022, it will be mild, but wet, then much colder by Monday. As it is, my husband and I are having a gala, if early dinner, locally, then will retreat to home, where we shall watch the light show of changing lights on the Empire State Building from the comfort of our living room.

This evening's jacket is the latest of the COVID-era purchases of evening wear.

Dinner jacket - New & Lingwood
Tuxedo trousers - Ede & Ravenscroft
Shirt - Brooks Brothers
Tie - Seigo, NYC
Cummerbund - vintage, no label
Cufflinks - The Persian Shop, NYC
Studs - no name brand
Pocket square - Brooks Brothers
Shoes - Magnanni for Saks Fifth Avenue
Overcoat & scarf - Turnbull & Asser
Hat - Lock, London
