Croquet tournament

 

Kent Wang white seersucker suit (available through made-to-measure)

Kent Wang linen/cotton shirt

Kent Wang white silk pocket square

Kent Wang minimal sneakers

Wood Mallets GW Original mallet

 

Kent, that is really hardcore but really well executed. Only complaint are the trainers - they feel a bit out of place even with the casual nature of the suit. But I have no experience with croquet or anywhere where seersucker is appropriate, so perhaps it is rather more par-for-the-course.

 

 

Nicely done. Stay away from food and drink.

Trashness restocked their "extreme cutaway" oxfords last week. At 29 USD I had to give it a try.

 

Worn with a Caruso SC, Zegna tie and my grandfathers handmade linen PS + Chinos and dubmunks.

looks too "extreme" for me, at least when worn with a tie.

Anden, have to agree with Timo. A normal spread would have looked a lot better. The other elements and colours are nice though smile.gif

Kent, have you thought about a lower buttoning point and a stronger shoulder?

Flat shoes are required for croquet, lest the heel foul up the lawn—usually the lawn is not so sensitive but it can be if it's wet. Maybe boat shoes would work? I can't think of any other options.

The buttoning point does look quite high, but it's because it was shot from a low angle, which shifts the perception of the buttoning point 1.5 cm higher—I know this from taking made-to-measure orders for customers based on photos.

 

I usually take a lightly padded shoulder, but this is an unstructured jacket so no shoulder padding. I can actually machine wash the whole thing, which is useful for such an easily stained garment.

Aha, ok. I do know that trainers were originally designed as croquet shoes in the late 19th century, so it makes sense to continue wearing them in such a context. It is sport after all!

That is, as objectively as this stuff can possibly be, irredeemably horrible.

Every piece is either ugly in its own right or completely out of place with everything else.

Taking it from the top--
Contrast collar shirt - not to be worn except in very limited circumstances (that part is more my personal preference). But certainly to be worn with a suit or at least a navy blazer. Makes zero sense with tweed.

Polka dot ties are generally not so good, unless you're the reincarnation of Churchill. And even then, goes with a suit or blazer.

The sportscoat isn't my cup of tea, but assuming everything was based on it and its patterned-ness, you could have made it work.

The bright, bold (and IMO fugly) square perfectly clashes with the bold sportscoat.

And hey, you have some flair! The monopoly lapel pin is always a nice addition.

I'm glad you got that out of your system.

Let us never speak of this again.

I would say unwearable with a tie.
