Light wool first and foremost during the week. Some cotton on less formal days. Silk looks great but it attracts attention. Mohair blends for evening. Linen for weekends, along with silk when I don't have the steel to wear it during the week. Will

One of my tailors showed me some wonderful Zegna wool crepe yesterday. It was a navy blue with pinstripes. Wonderful stuff. He also showed me some great kid mohair and wool blends. They weren't shiny at all, and I think they would be great for Hawaii weather. I'd get linen, but it wrinkles way too damn easy. I'd get silk, but then I'd get stared at. I'd get cotton, but again, there's the wrinkling issue.

What's wrong with being stared at in Slik? Surley it means you are dressed well

To paraphrase Beau Brummel, if someone turns to look at you you are not well dressed.

I'm sure most people in the US South, or North in the UK would stare at you if you wore black-tie dress (for the apropriate occasion), does that mean you are not well dressed?

No, the American South is now pretty civilized. They started paving their roads, and even got running water about ten years ago.

Maybe not, but Charleston and Savannah and Richmond are, to say nothing of Atlanta and Knoxville and ... you get the idea.

Manton, what are your feelings towards seersucker?
post #12 of 18
Love it in theory, have yet to try it in practice. I think I will some day, though.
post #13 of 18
same here. I used to have some silk sumer suits, now I stick to light wool. maybe next time I need some sumer suits I will try seersucker

I like seersucker better on weekends. If I can try to pull several of these sub-threads together, you won't be stared at in Kentucky if you're wearing a seersucker suit at a horse race. Although they might stare at you at a boat show. Will

In the Indiana summer: Linen Lightweight wool 1/4 lined cotton The problem comes once I step in to the building and the air conditioning hits me. It might as well still be winter.
