I went unstructured and patch pockets. For me, default is patch because they're functionally so much more practical. It's just way easier to stick a phone, a plane ticket, what have you, in open pockets. With the seersucker, I think you go one of two ways - either lean casual (ie unstructured/patch) or make it sleek and go with jetted pockets (through doesn't seem like that's available through Southwick).

Ugh...Bale is the only Madridista I even halfway stomach. Would be cool if EP started naming products after footballers though! Cool boots, BTW - such a classic and well-executed design.

Regarding the kids sweaters, if you offered the sock monkey pattern/colors in an adult sweater, I'd snatch that up!

I too am considering the seersucker with the unstructured shoulders and patch hip pockets. For me, I'd go for a patch chest pocket as well. That's my preferred make-up for about 95% of the casual fabrics no matter if I'm ordering a full suit or just a jacket.

Glad I'm not the only one that thought that way too haha. That pattern with the buttons looks great!

Hi all,

I am trying to get a better feel for what color combos I can wear with this salt-and-pepper donegal from the last round of Southwick EFF. Does this work? What types of pants should I try to pair with it?

Would you go with unconstructed shoulder on any of these? Work dress is bank-standard, I.e. Not suits but wool pants, dress shirts, etc.

 

I like you're angle on the first jacket.  Will look sharp; and although its a bright vibe, its professional, windowpane patterns are more common these days, and with a crisp white oxford or twill shirt underneath will look great!   

 

Hunting check you can certainly go unstructured, if you aren't required to wear a suit or tie, it tells me any jacket you wear would be accepted.  Unstructured shoulder, no problem, try one of each like you are, will find what looks best on you.  I'd even triple patch the Hunting check, but patch hip and breast welt is perfectly safe and a great way to style this fabric.

Olive looks awesome. I don't like black but black looks very cool with the Salt 'N Pepper jacket.

I agree with Todd on both, but I'd also add that I would pair nearly any solid color pant that works with grey. The salt and pepper fabrics I've encountered read grey for the most part so I treat them as such. Even when someone is close enough to see the variation a solid color pant will be a welcome contrast

Grey is stereotypically one of the hardest to wear sport coat colors. The typical rule is to have the sport coat darker than pants, which may be why this problem is arising.

Interesting.... I've never had that problem honestly. I have an old salt and pepper SC that I comfortably wear with pretty much anything other than khaki. I like it with olive, medium or light grey, navy, etc.- nearly all the staple colors. 

 

I think it would look killer with burgundy too (though I don't own burgundy pants)

Gray is hard only when all you wear are gray pants. Like you, I wear a salt and pepper SC with light, medium, and dark browns and blues, various shades of olive, sage, and army greens, various reds and burgundies, etc.

@CanadaCalThanks for your thoughts.

I may have missed it, but what vent are these being made with? I noticed this wasn't an option to select.

Mike said double-vented only at some point in the thread. :)

Purple Heather Moxy Heirloom preorded! I grabbed XS so in a a year and 11 months we can start wearing it lol!!

This is like the second time this week I've quoted myself, fortunately both times wasn't within this thread buuuut...

Grandma ordered babygirl a Ecru buttoned pullover with wood buttons. Going to have my daughter all EP'd out!
post #53490 of 57862
Kids heirloom duly noted. My kid actually asked if he could have one like mine last time I wore it and I was like, "Yes. Yes you can." Got to pass the colors up the chain of command and see what flys (am I mixing metaphors here?). But I think I got to go with wooden buttons for the guy so it'll be the pullover..
