Some overdue purchases (hawaiian shirt and espadrilles) for this hot weather!

 

 

It's like the 1950's combined with the 1930's laurence fellows illustrations.  I got inspired to buy these after reading the numerous articles (PTO and Die Workwear) about the hawaiian shirt, so I just had to get some for myself! It is a bit baggy and the sleeves too long for my frame, so I'm going to take them to the tailor!  

 

You can read more about the details and the purchases on my blog post!

^ Nice look. Tell me about the jacket.

@Sprezza that is a fantastic summer look (particularly without the jacket), and the poolside hardscape backdrop just completes it nicely.

 

You're really nailing that homage-to-classic-California thing.

@An Acute Style Thank you! It's an old suit supply cotton DB that I got back in 2013, when the company wasn't really mainstream.  It was super cheap, apart of their summer clearance sale.  This was before they had shifted to a different website for their sales!

 

@aj805 Thank you sir!  You got the inspiration right on the nose!

A suede kind of day:

 

post #21953 of 22493

Every time I see white jeans done well, I think to myself I need to get a pair.  Then I think about the hassle of finding the right fit  for my big thighs (my two go-to jean cuts aren't made in white), Then I think about how often my wife wears white jeans and how that might further limit some opportunities (although that is in my mind b/c we don't really coordinate and wear regular jeans at the same time all the time), and then, ultimately, I give up.  until the next time i see a pair done well.

 

tldr - i have a hang up about white jeans, but they look fantastic on Gerry.

What are your two go-to big-thigh jean cuts @WillingToLearn?

This is fantastic, of course. But what I TRULY appreciate is the small touches (i.e., the gold in the watch, the shirt buttons).

Levi's 541™ Athletic Fit

Sits at the waist with extra room in the seat and thigh and a slightly tapered leg.

 

And Lucky 363 (although they now have an athletic cut version, 410, just haven't tried it).  I almost got into that whole selvedge, break in a pair of jeans over a long time thing, but i just don't get to wear them enough. So neither of these will meet the standards of those that are into denim from the latest japanese loom.

Quick question, do you have the details on your glasses? 

Thanks! The glasses are by Balenciaga. I bought the frames from Malford of London a couple of years ago.

Jacket?

With weather predictions for highs of 33C/92F, with humidity making it feel like 37C/98F, a linen shirt and khakis is as dressed up as I'm getting today.

Shirt - Lewin
Trews - BB
Shoes - Tyrwhitt
