Fall is in full swing in New York and I just spent a brisk autumnal weekend rambling around Manhattan and Brooklyn. With the dropping temperatures and cool winds, a bit of layering was in order and I topped it off with my new Camden wool pea coat by Rugby — a handsome, double-breasted wool coat with gold, eagle-embossed buttons. Duly appealing to both my military inclinations and my horsey sensibilities, I can already tell I am going to get a lot of use from this lovely coat. I especially love the slight A-line shape and subtle chevron stitching on the sleeves.
I am a bit amazed at how much I managed to cram in this weekend. I dropped by the Morgan Library and Museum, to see the exhibit on French drawings from the revolutionary period (if you haven’t ever seen Pierpont Morgan’s 1906 library you definitely must go). I also visited the Brooklyn Flea (where I picked up a lovely stirrup, natch), wandered around the sculpture garden at the Pratt Institute and saw the American Art in the Twenties exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum. I enjoyed a lovely breakfast in Tribeca with Sarah, who was a dear and took these pictures of me.
