If I were in Midtown or in the Financial District, I would have just walked past him. It certainly doesn't take away from how nice he's dressed, he just would have seemed to have been in uniform for the office.
What makes this so charming was he was leisurely strolling through the back-streets of the West Village with his wife. He didn't have to wear a suit for a walk, he insisted on it.
This is the sartorial "Old-Guard", those beacons of decorum that remind the rest of us how sloppy we've become. They do it for themselves because that's what they expect and they do it for other's insofar as it would be disrespectful not to.
Thank you continuing to show us the way down the right path.
