I like your consistent expression!

Still battling the heat in Geneva. Really like this jacket but the fabric is unusual. It's a seersucker type weave, but the fabric is not cotton but a wool /silk blend. I seem to recall reading somewhere that for a fabric to defined as seersucker it has to be all cotton, but I might be wrong. Anyway, this is a surprisingly cool jacket.

I don't think seersucker has to be cotton, though it almost always is. Very interesting fabric, though the jacket looks a bit large on you.

Thanks for the info!

 

Agree, the jacket is on the large side, especially the length. I am usually pretty accepting towards longer lengths but this is probably an inch too long even for my taste. But I rarely wear it with a tie but more casually as a summer jacket and then the length matter less. I would shorten it if I thought it would work but in my experience that rarely turns out well.

Hey there.
Seersucker just refers to fabric with a puckered, crimped surface. It need not be cotton. There is some stunning wool seersucker around.
There's also an interesting discussion here you might like to read.

By the way, love your pics. I do look to them for inspiration.

I just don't understand the logic behind it and thought maybe it another inside joke.

Good outfit, but I think this jacket calls for higher-rise pants.

I think higher rise would have looked better as well.

Thanks, very interesting thread. I rarely have the energy to go that far back in a thread so it's good to get pointers. The high contrast wool seersucker that is pictured in that thread looks amazing.

 

Thanks for the kind words, always nice to hear that somebody find your posts inspiring.

@Scbrown, if you want a hat like @Tibor is wearing, you can get one from Engel Hatters.  Here's a link to their Facebook page.

So let me explain why I don't understand that comment...

I'll start by saying that I don't like high rise trousers. Yes, I know they are all the #menswear rage, but they aren't for me. These are a nice mid-rise...they are definitely not a low rise trouser. Second, I don't see how you can really gauge the look of someone's trouser rise without a full length shot to see what it does for their body type. It's said that high rise trousers make you look slimmer and your legs longer. Well, I'm 6'3" with long, long legs and I'm also slim...so why would I want trousers that accentuate that even more? For similar reasons, I would never commission a jacket from Edward Sexton. Not that I dislike his work (I'm a fan), but I have really broad shoulders and his shoulder style/structure would look like a costume on me. I don't really see how this particular jacket would prompt the need for a higher rise anyways...

Thanks for the thumbs and feedback yesterday. Your insights are always appreciated even though I don't have the means to do much about the fit issues at present. I'm taking notes for the future.

Today:

Brooks Oxford cloth tie
Brooks shirt
