It's a wool/silk/linen mix SC from SuitSupply. I believe it's from their previous S/S collection.

Cheers! Nope, go hard or go home wink.gif The way I tied it works surprisingly well as a belt, there's nothing sticking out. It's a relatively cheap cotton tie that I hardly wear, so I don't really care what happens to it. I am changing into something more comfortable soon though, as I'm about to hit the gym.

From yesterday, ideally the tie would be a bit darker. However, it holds a special significance because it was from my late grandfather who passed last weekend. Tie is 100% linen, shirt is 65% linen.

It's a little hard to explain, but I put it on just like a belt, making sure that the wide and narrow ends of the tie were in the front. So you have the two ends of the tie in your hands after you put it on, the wide end in your left hand, and the narrow end in your right hand. I put the smaller end behind the wider end, through the tie loop, which serves as a sort of belt buckle.

Then I put the wider end through the first belt loop on the right, and because it started to get too wide after that, folded it in half. This means that you're putting the wider end over the narrow end. It turned out that the tie ended just past the second belt loop on the right, so that was very convenient. Only a discerning eye would be able to distinguish I'm wearing a tie for a belt.

 

Anyway, there might be a better way to do it, but this is how I figured it out!

When you go off the map, Crusty, you really do it well.  Not that your perfect pinstripes are anything but superb, but I've really enjoyed your more country-fied fits of late, and this bit of peacockery is absolutely brilliant.  Let it out, your public approves!

sounds cool, thanks for the explanation.

The shoulders on the JAB seersucker are massive and the jacket is long in sleeve and body - reminds me of a zoot suit. But hey, that's almost the correct time period. Monkeyface's combo works surprisingly well. I don't think I've seen anyone pull off a red sportcoat before.

^ I wondered if we'd see the Fez! Very fun.

 

TTO, Angelicboris & Monkeyface looking especially good today. Monkey - the (two) ties are just enough to save this from looking like you've escaped from Butlins, and instead turn it into a really good flashy look.

Details on the pants?

 

Loro Piana, a linen/cotton blend IIRC.

The second is a seersucker suit from Brooks, my most recent purchase. I've taken pictures of both suits, with the same accessories, to see the difference in style and fit. The Brooks is obviously a superior fit, and I'm much happier wearing it.

As it happens, this is also the first day this year that the weather warrants the wearing of such a warm-weather fabric, and, in keeping with the rather retro nature of seersucker, it's also the opening day for Baz Luhrmann's movie version of “The Great Gatsby”. With this in mind, I've broken a rule or two with regard to seersucker – I'm wearing a double-cuffed shirt with a pin collar, and I'm uncertain whether my choice of socks is kosher under any form of sartorial rules. The first I did for pure “retro”, the second for personal caprice.

So be it.

Suit – BB or JAB
Shirt – Tyrwhitt
Tie – BB
Collar pin – PRL
Cufflinks – Metropolitan Museum of Art
Shoes – C & J Maltons
