Caution New York Times trend story: Seersucker - Page 2

post #16 of 23
leaving aside the painfully snotty tone of the article -

a seersucker jacket looks pretty good with jeans I think.

Anyone have a pic of the EG jacket? Couldn't find it in their S/S 2006 collection unless I am just missing it or something.

Seersucker aside, I watched the slideshow and I didn't know the prices were so grossly inflated in the US; $500 for a pair of prada pants and $1,910 for a jil sander suit !@# It's about 30% less in France even with tax.

Exactly, and when those 15 minutes are over, things become uncool/"so last week" within a New York minute. Before these 15 minutes, you'd just be counted as a young fogey if you wore seersucker. Next year, you'll be mistaken for a not-entirely-updated dedicated follower of fashion, which is far less preferrable.

Scenario: 92% and high humidity. I'd risk being hip so long as I'm cooled down somewhat.

Better not to focus on the winds of change in NYC and the fashion times and wear what you like. If you liked seersucker before the article and looked good it in, keep on doing what you're doing. The ones who just pick it up for a season somehow always seem to convey to me that they have just picked something up for a season.

www.engineeredgarments.com 2006 s/s It's the fourth picture on the top row. Mine is substantially more wrinkled from about the second pocket down.

This thread from The Sartorialist shows some of the same devolopment, I think: http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=13562
