HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part IV (starting May 2014) - Page 2425

post #36361 of 43850

This is fantastic all the same @Andy57 I was born in the 80s and although I remember very little from that decade, I can't seem to get over Maid of Orleans by OMD. I play this song dozens of times everyday, so whiles playing it now, your photo came up on the screen and that really brought back some strong and fond memories of my granddad who wore broad-brimmed hats, bow ties and odd jackets till the end of his days. He introduced me to OMD and countless other classics from the old days. This brought a tear to my eyes. That's just epic:)

 

Here, enjoy some of what I was listening to:smarmy:

It's been my experience with seersucker (or any suiting material white or close to white) that, other than small touches of color (i.e. a bow tie), one needs to keep the other colors pale as well - strong color and seersucker doesn't work well (I stubbed my toe, seriously, in a sartorial sense, attempting to wear a strongly pink shirt with a seersucker suit once).

Seulement mes deux centimes . . .

I agree with your observation regarding strong color. Pale blue, pale pink, might work. Seersucker is tricky.

Um, no. It 100% is objectively too long. Its almost long enough to be a car coat. Now, anyone can say that they like that look, but its too long from an objective standpoint to how long a jacket should be. There is certainly a range but it falls squarely outside the range.

Awesome, Synth.

I actually got this PRL tie from eBay.  I won a lot of three raw silk PRL ties for just $50.  Murl and SB look away.

Not that I'm one to follow rules, but I was waiting until memorial day to wear the new seersucker jacket I picked up this winter.  I may follow your lead and break it out this week.  Let the games begin.

Go for it, man.  I look forward to it.

 

These days, while there’s still good reason to be aware of calendar traditions, they’re no longer the ironclad determinant of appropriateness they used to be;  I think a rational man now dresses as much for the weather as for the calendar.

 

Cheers,

Could I ask what type of belt you are wearing with that outfit, i.e. brown leather/suede etc?

There's nothing objective about it. It may be, in your opinion, too long. And that's fine, but it's still only your opinion.
