HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 3675  

post #55111 of 78717

Braving some sweltering heat in my most lightweight suit - wish me luck.

Seems like most places are experiencing heat waves at this time. Alas, that is not the case here so more "cold weather" summer-wear is required. Unfortunately my wardrobe is significantly lacking such "transition" pieces, so I will again be wearing my favourite summer jacket that has already been featured quite heavily here this year. However, this time, to spice it up a little, I am fashionably wearing it one pocket flap in and one out biggrin.gif.

A haiku for Mimo:

Too hot it is for
wool socks in this heat today
deal with it, sucka

Thank you. They are new, I am enjoying them very much.

Thank you, CP, but in today's heat, my posting is over in the MC Casual section, and I fear that I cannot match Mr. Willan's cleverness in describing his birth, background, and choice of libation.

She took a few photos of my partner and myself, outside - we'll see if they end up ever being published.

Crusty, if this guy gets published and you don't, what little faith in humanity I was clinging to shall evaporate.

 

Incidentally, I just realized we either work or live very near one another - I'm not sure which.

Upper, I'm sorry I couldn't be there at the Garden Party. Next year for sure. Then again, in this heat, it might not have been the optimal time anywho.

I sincerely doubt that the gentleman in question was of much interest to Bill Cunningham (the gentleman in question has attended the last four iterations of Tuesday night's party, and I've not seen his photo published anywhere), and I may have hallucinated, but I do think that Bill did take my picture, though that is hardly a guarantee that I will make the style section of the Sunday Times. That honor is usually reserved for those with much larger checkbooks than mine own.

As for our proximity, I will PM you, but yes, I do believe we both inhabit that open-air sanatorium commonly known as Manhattan.

I'm 99.9% sure he wasn't...but you know, just in case...

Diaz, roger, pingson, excellent.

Pliny, Love that sportcoat but I don't think that it's really working with the tie. I think that sportcoat calls for a more subdued tie with some texture to it. I'm also not sure the colors are working together either. Just my opinion. Sorry. : (

Ever consider thinner cotton socks? 

 

It's 110 here in Phx. I went sockless a few times but it's not a good idea now. The amount of sweat that goes in to the shoe would be really really bad. I need something to soak that crud up. Yes, even indoors.

post #55123 of 78717
yeah, for me its the opposite too. when it really hot the last thing i want is my feet crammed in stuffy leather with no separation. barf.
post #55124 of 78717
I wear no show socks. They just let my ankles be out.

My thoughts as well.
