HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part IV (starting May 2014) - Page 2567

post #38491 of 44075

My sister bought me this tie for my birthday.  It would not have been my choice.   It comes from a small English maker called Van Buck who sell mainly through small local shops - as in this case,  from Coes of Ipswich.  I know yellow ties don't get much love here...

However, my point is that only the Optima shape can be rolled and only if it has a fabric sweatband, and even so, the hat will quickly begin to deteriorate and fall apart at the point of the hat (the very top and middle of the crown). The more expensive the hat, the more rolling your panama is a bad idea. And Fedora-shaped hats cannot be rolled at all.


Fair enough, but I never said that you should smash your panama hat every day. All I said was that they are crushable, which is true. My point was that changing the shape of such a hat permanently is pretty much not possible without using an additive. This, in contrast to shaped panamas which can be re-shaped with steam.

Today was Election Day in California.  I kept intact my perfect record of voting in every election since I was old enough to vote.  Like Sir Joseph Porter KCB, "I always voted at my party's call, 
and I never thought of thinking for myself at all".

After voting today, standing by the government issued Poling Place flag and poster warning against campaining near Poling Places and wearing my "I Voted" sticker, Brooks Brothers brown herringbone tweed jacket (part of a three piece suit that I got in 1965), yellow and white University stripe OCBD shirt, and tie, Jim Thompson pocket square, Orvis cord trousers, and Allen-Edmonds khaki grain McTavishes.


Close up of the California version of an "I Voted" sticker.

@Roycru, if you ever run for something you have my vote.

I believe it is possible to reblock a good quality panama, although I don't think I'd like to try that. And, you're right, much like a felt hat, the brim can be shaped with steam. Although In would advise being really careful with a good hat.

Drake's, last November, had several. But their sales approach to them was peculiar. New & Lingwood also had quite a selection in their window when I was there a couple weeks ago.

This is good. Would have been better still with a pocket square with just a bit of that tie's burnt orange/tangerine. The tie on its own is just a little too stark.

 

Is the jacket Canali? Looks like their cut.

No sir. You are not. I possess two, one of which I am wearing right now.
