You just got married Clags?

Congrats and errrrr ... pics or GTFO!

Is she Korean?
post #33 of 204

Aye, she's Korean, though she went to uni in the States. Neither one of us is big on ceremony; we just went down to the courthouse. My parents flew in from Texas to spend the week with us.

 

There will be a WAYWRN shot with her, myself, another regular WAYWRN poster and his Korean wife. That'll come next month. And that's all I'm saying on that matter. It'll have to be a surprise.

After lunch yesterday, on a (traffic) Island Of Flowers.  Brooks Brothers jacket, shirt, and tie, Turnbull & Asser pocket square, Land's End seersucker trousers (with far too many keys in the pocket), and Bass white bucks with blue laces........

I'll look out for it. Seems like you have a good story there so good luck to you both. Are you in Korea for the duration since you're getting a new place, or are you coming back to Texas any time?

Nice trad combo but looks thrown off by excessively baggy strides.

But at least in the Peninsula, one must lisp endlessly.

I feel like the shirt makes this busy. This is actually a situation where I'd wear a white linen PS and a white shirt. Boutonnière is very nice though.

edit: Actually I'll explain my point of view a little further. I think color-wise you're already covered (yellow in the hat/jacket, blue in the pants (apparently, colors might be wrong), green in the tie, and orange/red for the boutonnière). There's also some darker and some lighter elements. Normally I'd say a pale blue shirt (not necessarily solid either) would work better but I fear it'd look bad if you take your jacket off (which I'm assuming here is a possibility) given that the trousers look kind of blue too. Pocket square and tie look slightly matchy (and actually, your PS also sort of matches the boutonnière, which imo is taking it too far.
I think the PS might work on red/pink colors, just taking a hint of the boutonnière but not too much.

I might be biased towards simplicity, though…

It´s from Woods of Shropshire: http://www.woodsofshropshire.co.uk/green-large-paisley-silk-handkerchief

No hand rolled edges but for the puff fold it´s nice. For that price good silk and bright colors.

So, I decided to make a grand entrance into the challenges. I've been lurking for a while but haven't really found a challenge I like.

 

This is something I wore to a birthday party, a couple of days ago, in the countryside of southern Sweden. Please don't hate the watch. Me and my friend had a bit too much to drink and decided it would be fun to put it over the cuff.

 

Anyway, the jacket is silk, linen and wool, the shirt is seersucker and the pants are just really light cotton. That is as much summer as you get in Sweden.

Wanting to wear something that spoke of summer, but without resorting to seersucker or linen, I chose the ensemble below. The inclusion of a hat is the momentary inspiration from Don Cologne's posting.

Suit - BB Fitzgerald
Shirt - Tyrwhitt
Tie - Hermes
Cufflinks - Metropolitan Museum of Art
PS - no name brand
Shoes - C & J Maltons
Hat - Seifter Associates

I'm going to use this look from earlier in the week as my entry; I'm not feeling massively inspired today and don't think I'll come up with a more summery vibe.

crusty and HF, very nice.

DC - pretty good, but the jacket looks a bit snug.
