Yeah, I know, thanks for the compliment. Incidentally: both the suit and tie were the ones I wore at my own wedding.

Ahhhhhhhhhh. Much better (and I don't even like yellow ties). I will second Spoo's comment about the PS; maybe linen or cotton with a contrast edge more casually stuffed, or in that blue from the tie? Maybe even something that works with the tan in the seersucker? I think o/o would have you go sockless, though!

1930's Boater Redux....(be warned, it's a touch 'costumy')



I just finished removing the collar from an old shirt and stitching in some new button holes so I could try out this vintage 'double round' collar I've had for a few years...thought I should go the whole hog with the belt-backed linen DB and the boater!
Also loving this tie from Howard Yount

Summer is officially here. So, why not greet it with some color?




Also, some proof that I am passing on the tradition...the 13 year old this weekend:



Have a good one,

Mike

Agree with Spoo, much better. Seersucker is already an FU fabric, so these calmer details make it more reasonable.
Happy Solstice, everyone. Anyone want some ice cream? Don't even discuss the wrinkled trou. These were pressed maybe an hour before this photo. Humidity is killer today. Details. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Fritz came with me to the office today. Had a 9.30 appointment with the groomer to get his summer cut, and I had a 9.00 client meeting. I need to teach him how to file.

Glad Theo and Mike got the anti-CBD memo I sent. Waiting on % to check his email...

Wanted to play up the subtle berry stripe in the suit fabric. Not a courtroom, but a room in the courthouse.

On you, it is totally approrpriate. Does not look like a costume to me. Well done.

As a matter of fact, aside from the boater, I will DTO this shortly.

Very splashy and summery. I am not a huge fan of that shirt - maybe a blue plaid instead?

This is a good summer look without being too OTT, even with the boater. The trou cause me to pause a bit, but I like the blue overcheck that plays with the blues on the top. I'd like to see this with brown suede shoes or specs.

This is a nice almost CBD look - the blue coat gives it a flip to FU. Well done. And you're training your padwan well.

As for no socks, my office might well have taken offence at the sight of my naked ankles (I do believe that it is a violation of the dress code, even though my office is business casual).

Until such time as I actually tried wearing seersucker, I had no idea exactly how much it is indeed an FU fabric, making its own demands, visually - it is so much lighter, visually, even than a solid tan suit fabric.

Glad that I seem not to have elicited adverse comment - so far .

Check my kid above for how to do Seersucker, Crusty.

IMHO, you have way too much light color here. You should have brought in something else. A pale blue shirt, a darker tie...some contrast somewhere. It looks nice, but to me seems washed out.
