I decided to post this Hermes suit with ostrich vest and trim because today I am wearing a wool three-piece suit today in Los Angeles. This Hermes suit is proper attire for today's gloomy weather that feels more like November than February (Los Angeles has been blessed with several days of sun). I know I shouldn't complain: I live in Los Angeles and the sun normally is quite consistent in my life, but the rain is comin'!

If you want to look chic in Los Angeles (or anywhere else with chilly weather), this is the lewk (ode to Brad Goreski) to sport. Reminiscent of Yves Saint Laurent's tailored clothes, this tweed suit includes a wrap jacket, pleated pants, and an ostrich vest. No Emu has been wasted as the jacket pockets and back shoulder are trimmed in ostrich and the inside leg of each pant has a patch of ostrich, too. Now what bag should you carry when wearing such a decadent ensemble? Why this ostrich Birkin of course...and carry an umbrella!
