I'm fine with that tie, Clags.

On that note, is linen permissible all year round in Florida?

"Impermissible" is strong. One thing I've learned about many of the "rules" of SF. They are best thought of as advice. 

 

On Claghorn's tie question (Click to show)
Mostly, I know Claghorn has some flannels and tweeds, and I wasn't moved by the Isaia as an autumn tie with the SCs and suits that he has. My two cents.

 

If you live in an environment that is warm to unbearably hot, year round, then wool ties might feel oppressive even in winter. So, draw on colors and textures as appropriate to the feel of the season, if not the actual season.

To be sure.

 

Actual climate and temperature trump nominal season.   

 

I’m guessing that people in Nassau don’t wear great coats just because it’s Christmas.

I used the term "impermissible" somewhat jokingly (no sense of humor!). Ill advised might be more accurate. Not for reasons of rules but for mere practicality.

Though if y'all want this renamed to Good Natured Advice Thread, I'm fine with it. whnay's is pretty dead, and the title was always mean as a parody of that.

 

Yes.

Are tailors over there more 'trendy', or old fashioned?

I seriously thought it was an angry bird. Still not 100% convinced otherwise.

Hahaha, thanks! I guess it was a silly question. If it's hot, which it almost always is, linen will be approrpriate.

Although the Cardinal logo was around before that game, We do sometes refer to it jokingly as the angry bird

Haha, no problem. To answer your question, though, I think Florida winters can be something like 60s and 70s during the day and 50s and as low as 40s at night.

I'd say linen could be worn all year round if that's the case. Fresco and any other open weave material would obviously be the way to go since you also have humidity to go along with the heat.

Ah, sorry. My above 12 proposals apply mutatis mutandis to the grad lounge.
