#2094 The big chill

Hot diggity dog it's freezing in this city. Today it got down to minus two degrees (28 Fahrenheit) and I ventured out for my first foray on the cold, hard streets of New York. Luckily, I packed heavy so I feel well-prepared to deal with the chill, but nothing can really get you ready for an icy blast running down the avenue that causes instant-hypothermia-of-the-ears-and-nose. I'm at a stalemate with the bus seller – yesterday he cancelled the 6:00pm appointment because it was too dark, and said we'd meet at noon today. Today he called me to say I should meet him at 7:00pm. How's that for logic? I swear he's trying to lure me up to the Bronx for an old fashioned snatch and grab with a little murder thrown in for good measure. We've agreed to meet tomorrow during the day and I'm taking my trusty sidekick/bodyguard along for the ride. Two thugs rolling dirty. I'm sure we'll be fine.

I'm wearing: A Little Brother duffel coat, Untouched World scarf, Lacoste sweater, Uniqlo oxford shirt, Woolrich Woolen Mill pants, Moreporks socks and Mark McNairy shoes.

Pleased to see you've got that lovely 'merinomink' scarf with you. What about a warm hat??

A hat would've been a good idea. I've got a couple with me.

I like this. Is that sweater borderline pistachio coloured? Because that's good.

Oh honey, -2 degrees is cold? Come up to Canada some time. -20/-30 with windchill is totally do-able. Bring that lovely sweater.

You might need to buy some jackets in larger sizes to wear as overcoats over jackets like this look on stylist Andrea Porro

loving the Doc Marten Tassle Loafers too.
