Judging by what I know of the woodshed, being taken out there could turn out to be really awesome or really awful.

It is indeed a suit but I didn't really intend that picture for the competition. That picture is from several yeas ago, (though I did wear it this Wednesday) I was just using is as an example. Thanks for including it, however.

Here is the whole suit:

That suit is fantastic! I am thinking about sleeve cuffs on one of my next suits. I usually wait until it's in the 80's before I break out the white suits but you are giving me some ideas...

That is a really good idea. I have long though that meetups should happen at regular intervals (at least in New York and San Francisco) so people could better plan for them.




Well here is what I actually wore yesterday. I was traveling most of the day and didn't change into proper attire until the evening. It turned out to be a rather late night and only just now had a chance to get to the computer. (Maybe if I was extra lucky TTO could switch out the photo....?)

One of my favorite of your suits. I have been jealous of it for a long time. I almost had something similar made last year but was unfortunately not able to secure the fabric.

Dammit, I was actually wearing a beautiful light blue linen and cotton Isaia summer suit this week for our graduation ceremony, but still haven't got copies of any of the many photos that were taken, so I couldn't enter. Oh well. Instead, who to choose...

(You can choose as many as you want, which means one can be me. Just sayin')

Beckett & Robb suit (Holland & Sherry linen fabric). I almost ordered this in a brown just like JPHardy's. 

Beckett & Robb shirt (looking solid here, it's actually a micro-gingham)

Unknown maker hat, picked up in Florence ages ago

Unknown linen PS

 

I like the swagg and the simple, but sleek look.

Butler has more steez than most of us put together, but a DB suit with a DB vest is too much. Especially in a linen summer suit where the idea is to be cool.

southernstyle, that may be your best fit ever.

When you're facing 25˚C tops, no.

Yes, and there is plenty of historical precedents even in tropical conditions cheers.gif
