So, how's that work over there? Here in the US, we've got about five or six major holidays where virtually all professionals have the day off - New Year's Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. And then there's a whole raft of other minor government/bank holidays, but the only people who have those off are government workers, banks, and schools. The rest of the private sector works as normal.

8 national holidays a year (most years; last year there was 1 extra for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, year before there was an extra 1 for William & Kate's wedding). They're New Year's Day, Good Friday, Easter Monday, 1st & last Mondays in May, last Mon in Aug, Xmas Day, and Boxing Day. If either 25 or 26 Dec falls on a weekend, the following Monday (+/- Tues) is the day off. They're called Bank Holidays but don't just apply to banks. As you can see, spring has a whole run of them in a short space of time, which is fun. Most people have the day off on them, or if they choose/have to work, frequently get a day in lieu or double pay, or some other perk.

 

Technically, I don't actually get them (I'm self-employed, not an employee). But my work pattern is such that I don't tend to work on them anyway.

What I wore to a Derby party this weekend. Refused to wear seersucker at night.

 

 Hate to say it but isn't the jacket way too tight? peepwall[1].gif

Paris in the spring, and staying in a 500 year old building. Very impressive to an American. Just some fun stuff, and comfortable shoes for walking.

CM - not sold on the close ups, but the distance shot looks very nice.

Maybe a textures problem?

could be, maybe tie v SC, but im not really a stickler for these things. looks good from afar, that counts well enough for me for a "like."

That was my reaction, too. In the close-ups, the tie is overpowering.

I thought the colorful trousers might mellow it out, so I can see how the closeups don't do it justice. Might still be a miss though. Oh well, I was having fun. lol

In the back it prevents the buttons being pressed into my flesh when driving.



Since I've been lifting weights for years, my shoulders are quite large and I use pleats on the back of the shirt to be able to extend my arms easily. The lower back of the shirt is also adjusted to my body architecture.



Below a full view with vest and jacket. The jacket has 3 buttons and diagonal pockets. There are no vents in order to make it better fitted around my hips (this is a bit uncomfy though).




Here you see the lapels on the vest and on the jacket. It's all herringbone! biggrin.gif

I love this!

These are the holidays in England and Wales. Scotland and northern Ireland have different ones; I believe that Scotland has 8 and northern Ireland 9.

With a tie like that, I think you have two options - blue blazer or blue suit. I don't see the bright orange jibing with anything other than a blue.

Another element is that a repp with at least one bright color is pretty instantly collegiate/preppy with a a subdued SC makes for a bit of a mixed metaphor.
