They're legal tender, and legally can't be refused as payment for a debt. A clerk at a store can refuse pennies, because they can refuse to make the sale, but in the case of a ticket where you're paying an existing debt, they're obligated to take it. That said, there is approximately nobody on the planet who would pay all the filing fees required to file a suit against an organization that refused to accept pennies just to force them to accept pennies in payment, so it's a...
They have healthy collars. Not the largest I've ever seen, but more than large enough. Nice and stiff, too. Can't comment on the button downs as I don't have any button downs from them, just a couple spreads and a cutaway.
Burgundy and maroon are both shades of red by just about any definition on the planet, but I can more than understand excluding them from this challenge- brighter shades of red are far more of a challenge in the CM sphere, and challenge is what makes it fun.Anyway, some photos.Detail shots: [[SPOILER]]
Well, I imagine most of us have a tie or two...
I would agree. Very nice fit.
The term drop refers to the difference in pant size from jacket size as part of a suit. That is the only meaning of the term in terms of clothing, and 6 inches is the standard. Perhaps you're looking at suit separates, or maybe the maker you're looking at just uses the same tag on all their pants, regardless of whether they're intended for a suit or not. But there is no other meaning of that term.
With recrafting, they refinish the uppers, do everything on the original last, replace the welt if needed, ect. Nick V is a high end guy, so he'd likely do all the same stuff, though not on the original last (but very close). He'd also probably use a better quality sole leather than some manufacturers. Your average corner cobbler would not do all that though- they would just swap out the sole, without being too careful on the stitching, give you a quick polish, and send...
Sidecar earlier, Bourbon Rickey now. And I had straight bourbon with dinner, because why the hell not?
Really?You said that seersucker pants weren't versatile because they would look like orphans from a suit. That is simply not a remotely common view of seersucker pants in cultures or climates where they are worn. Nor is it in any way consistent with the traditions or history of the garment itself. Your post basically seemed to be completely ignorant of anything but a narrow stereotype of seersucker, and needed to be countered so that you didn't turn the other poster away...
They are seersucker pants, and seersucker pants are very commonly worn on their own. Full seersucker suits are far less common than people wearing just the pants. Take it from a guy from the south. Seersucker is much more common down in the south and in DC than it is in Canada.As for how to wear them- with a linen jacket, navy blazer, madras jacket, polo, or just a long sleeve shirt with the sleeves rolled up. Boat shoes, penny loafers, canvas sneakers, bucks- white or...
