I have a lot of pocket squares.  I imagine that there is an optimal one somewhere in my collection for any outfit I put together.  Locating it is not always a simple task.  This is not the one.  I can't sell myself otherwise.  It's not bad square though.

Thanks for the compliment.  

 

Your seersucker will look great with patch pockets.  If you keep the formality of use and fabric roughly congruent with the formality of the makeup, you can't go wrong.

Thank you gentlemen.

 

Are guys who wear seersucker suits, or even blazers, with flaps committing a slight sartorial faux pas wearing a more formal flap?

Trying to make seersucker more formal when it is casual? Because all the Google images I've seen of seersucker suit wearers are wearing flaps!

 

It is confusing to this seersucker noob.

I don't think many people really care about pockets that much.  Formal suits look best with flap pockets.  Casual suits look fine with flap or patch pockets.  Make a choice and own it.  If anyone dislikes it, it's just their opinion vs yours.  .

Ha. 1) No one outside of this thread is going to care :). 

 

2) This is not a normal seersucker, it's navy, so it's going to be doubly hard to notice. And it's going to look more like a blazer than an old timey suit (where maybe something like a more formal flap may be more appropriate).

 

3) and yes, i agree with the above. just pick a style and own it.:)

NOBODY in real life will care. You could go besom (jetted) and you'd still be fine.

I prefer patch, but flaps will be perfectly acceptable.

I have a seersucker odd jacket from Brooks Brothers with flap pockets. I wear it without any hesitation whatsoever.

The PS is a fine complement here, as far as I'm concerned. Nice work!

@blekit , I really want to like this. The elements are all excellent: suit fits you really well, tie is a beauty, pockets square and shoes look nice, shirt collar is good, etc.

 

It's just the ensemble that's not quite hanging together for some reason that I can't quite put my finger on. Maybe it's that each individual element is so eye-catching in its own right, that seen all together they tend to overwhelm the eye.

 

I think that with a simple white or pale blue linen PS in a "TV" fold, and a more neutral shoe colour (although exactly what that colour would be, I'm not sure - maybe light grey? Such shoes do exist), this could have been stellar.

 

As it is, I see it more as a kind of glorious train wreck. Dandy as all-get-out, close to being magnificent, but just not quite there.

 

Anyway, keep 'em coming, as I expect great things from you in the near future.

Yeah, given the strong pattern of the suit and bright color of the tie, I think you are right and toned down PS would have worked way better.

 

As for shoes, I think the photo does not do them justice - they are a bit lighter and especially in the sun have beautiful antique effect (better presented here). I was thinking about black wholecuts, maybe they would have complemented the suit better, but I think that those work as well and brown is more in line with the sunny weather. And I don't think I'm ready to wear shoes in other colors than black, shades of brown, navy or burgundy.

 

Anyways, thanks a lot for your opinion and your faith in me. I'll try not to disappoint :)

Haven't had the chance to wear tails in a few years. Hard to photograph. Even harder on an iphone.

The rig belonged to my late grandfather and I wear it with pride everytime. The trousers shall be shortened at some point but I seem to forget about it every time I put it away and realize it too late the next time...

 

The rest of the weekend was spent in Cowboy-clothes listening to:

(National AGM with Round Table and Ladies Circle).

thanks :)

 

which one ?

The suit and tie are sharp.  But, the rich tones of the shoes seem off to me in this context.  Have you considered something more muted? 

 

Some EG images to illustrate.
