HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 3570  

post #53536 of 78717
We reach around 50ºC (120º F). Looser, heavier fabrics like linen do wear cooler for me, but for some reason they make me sweat more around the armpits (probably because of the heavier fabric bunching there), and once they are wet they won't get dry. So I have to resort to poplin or end on end. Chambray is hard to find here but I guess it would work well, too. If I wear an undershirt it will make me sweat so much that stains will go all the way through the jacket. It's fortunate that I can just take it off without anyone saying anything...

Acorn Cambridge fabric. Best summer stuff in the world. Trust me.

Interesting. Need to ask if the shirtmaker who works with my tailor accepts client provided fabrics...

I generally like end-on-end shirts on warmer days. Technically its a plain weave (as are many others) and is distinctive only by its coloring (??)... but as far as what's in the closet most of my EOE shirts have a crisp and coarser look and feel to them.

Although once the needle hits above 90*F, it doesn't really matter what the fabric is -- even linen -- its going to feel equally sweaty and miserable to me

Very true, when it is humid you can be naked and still feel miserable.

CD, there's such intensity of color in the shirt and tie, but the suit and hank are so restrained. It needs something to bridge the divide.

Conversely, I find that when I am naked and very happy, there is often humidity involved.  Take that mental image with your breakfast bagel.

It's good that you can see beyond your own predilections and appreciate color in others' clothing. smile.gif

True dat, although I'd have preferred to see light coloured trousers

OK so more confusion from me....2 weeks ago I wore the loud orange madras tie with a white shirt and white PS - kind of similar to what Sander has but with an all navy suit - and the consensus was I needed something else louder. So here I am two and two....a little more reserved with suit and PS, louder with shirt and tie. Are you saying I need to fully rock out with my peacock out, or otherwise nothing loud at all? What if the tie was solid?

Not necessarily. If you were wearing a saturated blue suit, it would balance out the saturation in shirt and tie.
