Seersucker is a bridge too far for me. I guess it maybe works for other people, but I am quite sure I would look ridiculous in it.

Still almost a month until that's acceptable, even in the deepest reaches of the South.
I was in Memphis yesterday and Friday where I saw a couple of guys in seersucker suits. I thought it was a bit too early, particularly since it wasn't balmy there.

I have a seersucker suit, but I only wear it as separates. I can rock it pretty hard in individual pieces, but I feel costumey when I wear it as a suit. One day I might give it another try, as I've acquired a bit of confidence with age, but I've yet to follow through. I will say some guys can pull it off really well. I seem to recall FLMM (or possibly Mrs. FLMM) posting a FB picture of him in a full suit, and it really worked.

Yeah, some people down here seem to think the first day of spring is some sort of demarcation point for breaking it out. I have an Atlanta friend who posted recently on Facebook insisting it's appropriate to wear his seersucker because it's now spring and "wedding season." A bunch of us tried to explain that it's too early, but he'd have none of it. We eventually just had to give up and let him be wrong.

^^ Yes, that's exactly my worry, that it would feel like costume. That's not at all to say it's costume on everyone, but I do not come from a region of the country where anyone ever wears seersucker. To me, it would feel almost the same as putting on a Colonel Sanders suit.

I've been told I am too 'Mediterranean' looking to wear seersucker, and I do agree. I wear linen suits instead, however, I like to see seersucker being worn.

I definitely get that. Truth be told, it would strike me as a little odd if I saw someone in seersucker, especially a full suit, outside of the Deep South and maybe the bordering states. I'm not saying it shouldn't be done, but there is certainly something to be said for context. It's much easier to pull off when it's a common sight than when you're That Guy Who Wears Seersucker.

My two year old nephew rocked a seersucker suit, and straw trilby, at my wedding.  It was epic.  My sister prefers I don't post the pictures, sadly.

It's common enough up here in june-aug, at least in the area where I live.

There are a few things that I draw the line on, even though I would really like to wear them commonly. Hats, cravats, ect.

And all these charming Russian top models desperate meeting me....

Longest phase of my training is coming to end in a month, finally moving on with my life.

Saved an impressive amount of money in the last year.

Strongest I've ever been and in best shape of my life.

For the first time in my life worked out something that can be officially considered a friends with benefits situation.

Shirt I ordered from Moderntailor fits perfectly on the first attempt, may be the start of a beautiful relationship.
