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

JAB:

First off the BB outfit looks great (love the tie and shoes). Second, this is actually a really valuable illustration regarding JAB versus BB (and many others). I have only one item from JAB, an online impulse buy tweed jacket that was marked down 90%. The fit has exactly the same issues of overbuilt shoulders and overly large arms that I see with your suit. I ended up taking it back and going down two sizes, had it altered twice (by first their tailor and then mine) and it still looks too bulky in the shoulders and, as a result, I don't wear it and, even at the clear-out price, it was a waste of money. You get what you pay for, I suppose.

Thanks. Already answered the trouser question upthread, but the tie's Attolini. I can't remember the fabric exactly but I think either a silk/linen or silk/cotton blend.

 

 

 

Got to say, this week's contest brought out some really fun vibrant, if somewhat off-the-wall, looks. Nice work!
