I really like this jacket.  I liked the white buttons the most.  The horn ones were my 2nd favorite.  I don't like these new buttons very much.  They seem out of place to me.  I think mother of pearl would be the best option.  

 

I would not recommend wearing a blue shirt with this jacket.  From a distance, the blue/white seersucker looks mostly blue.  The shirt blends with that creating a huge block of blue.  Usually the blues don't quite match up which is the case here.  

 

I know you've been searching for good pant combos to wear with this jacket.  I'd recommend navy (the horror).  The khaki pants you wore worked nicely, but I would recommend darker shoes with that combo.  You mentioned wearing a green pair of pants a while back.  I'm still waiting to see that combo.  icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

For some reason the pics make buttons look off-center, but they have actually been placed over the original stitch marks. They look fine IRL.

Please excuse the rumpled cotton trousers, been sitting in them for six hours.

It's definitely different but I kind of like it. 

 

I don't think I can get onboard with the navy pants option, and not sure what other shirt to wear besides hues of blue that AAS has in mind. But I think this is fine. The cream pants are a win.

Navy M&S suit

Duchamp shirt

Paul Smith tie

PS is out of shot but plain pink silk

 

Didn't have time for a larger photo!

I would have thought that in your country, you should be able to find any number of cheap panamas at a local market in summer. Mine was about £30 after haggling. If I can find one in such a market in England, surely it should be possible in Spain! It won't be the finest of weaves, of course, but for day to day use it will hold up perfectly well, and you won't care when it inevitably falls into the river or the sea and returns to you sopping wet & misshapen (the M&S one I have has been christened thus in several seas around the world over the years; I'm always surprised about how easily it can be returned to a decent shape as it dries!)

 

BTW, I agree with all of what AAS has said about your seersucker jacket today.

I agree with the general thrust of your point, but there would be a bit more of a visual difference from the side or from behind. My other panama is snapped up at the back, and looks a bit more rakish from those angles than the one I posted yesterday (it also has a slightly lower crown which adds to that overall impression). I tend to wear it with more casual outfits whereas the one with the turned down brim and higher crown seems to work better with tie/jacket looks IMO. I do also find that the turned-down rim keeps the sun off the nape of my neck a bit better but that may be more of a psychological than practical effect as I doubt that the shadow really extends that far down.

diaz - i like this effort of the DB the best so far.

re armholes, it is unusual, but a few RTW jackets i have tried on were cut stupidly high in the armpits. too bad cuz they were otherwise excellent jackets.

Thanks for the feedback. Yeah, definately need to wear white shirts with this jacket, but I only have a couple and don't always have one ready. Need to get more. I'm not sure I've said anything about green pants, as I don't have any, but I have just bought a pair of lighter-than-navy lightweight wool slacks on sale. I think they will work great. Need to cuff them first smile.gif

 

As for the buttons, I really do like the new ones for some reason; must be the shade of brown, or whatever. The reason I discarded the white and the (fake) horn ones is because they looked too plasticky IRL, and I also wanted a more lively shade of brown for a summer jacket like this. IRL, they really add some color vibrance to the ensemble, and I like that!

 

HF, I've been walking around the area near my workplace and found a couple local hat shops (didn't even think such shops would still exist around here!) I haven't gone inside, but at least now I know there are a couple places to look. There must be something decent in there. Thanks! smile.gif

My working week starts today with this outfit.

don - on the whole, very nice. do that more often. jacket seems a little snug, and the tie/PS combo is on the matchy side, and the PS fold is kind of weak sauce. but outside of that, very nice.
post #55059 of 78722

I don't think Don's jacket is snug, but it seems to suffer from a slightly short front balance. If it was well balanced the ripples would probably disappear.

Overall it's very good, though. Trouser drape is great.

the button that buttoned seems to be clearly being pulled by the jacket, which usually could be fixed by moving the button over just a tad. whatever the reason, there is some minor pulling there. not a huge deal, but its on the apparent side. anyhow, its a very nice look on the whole.
post #55061 of 78722

Yep, off balance usually causes problems that you would associate with tightness or looseness, like pulling at the buttons, gaping vents, etc. In a way, it does create tightness, because it takes away cloth from where it's needed and adds it where it is not smile.gif

had these hemmed since last time. more of an MC casual fit, but since i last wore them with a SC and posted here, and got a lot of solid feedback about the hems, i thought id update ya'll.

i think most would say they are still too long, but i think i like them this way. not sure. also might just need to hike them up a little. or it might be the way i am leaning toward my right. whatevz. certainly better than the weaksauce cuff roll from last time i would think.

thanks for the help, my doods!

Stitches... I would buy the shoes on the upper left they look very comfortable. Who is the maker?

lol fred. that would be g-d (for those who believe in him). did you not get a pair when you entered this earth?
post #55065 of 78722

Stitch, don't hem those pants any more. Cotton is unpredictable and you might end up with too short pants once you wash them a few times. You probably knew that already but I thought it was worth the warning bigstar[1].gif
