Gents , is it worth buying a sheersucker suit for Sydney summer? Really wanting to get one. Any aus members rocking sheersucker suit ??
post #66047 of 67946

I don't think I've ever seen anyone wearing a seersucker suit in Australia.

 

Having said that, I do own a pair of seersucker trousers from BB.

 


A bit washed-out in this lighting, but I assure you they are seersucker.

All this talk of pjt, I do recall they had a post somewhere (Instagram) with a suit made in a seersucker fabric.

Are T shirts and suit jackets now a thing for you, Cox? ;)

Cox, I agree with you to an extent. You can put skilled workers in an environment where they are almost 'forced' to produce quality garments, but this can always be trumped by Henry Carter's example.

 

I am going to sound like a wanker, but a garment made with pride and passion will end up being more of a masterpiece (?) than a garment made by someone chasing security or money. Henry''s tie makers are in it for the love, and I believe that if there are two skilled people, the person that is in it for the love, will produce the better garment. Hence, I still prefer to buy Italian, or put another way, the Chinese product will be inferior. That, and the fact that the Italians don't really work unless they can be bothered to means that you know they are doing it out of enjoyment (that was joke, we all know the Italians are industrious).

 

TL DR: A garment made with care and passion is usually noticeably better than a garment that is made just to turn a dollar.

Er, no. That's not a tee - it's a very lightweight long-sleeved linen knit.

 

The jacket is indeed part of a suit, but I designed it to be wearable as a summery, informal odd jacket.

 

Whether it actually works this way or not is debatable, I guess.

Was just having a joke :).

 

I don't mind the t shirt under jacket look at all, I just remember the debate flaring up in this thread. I can't recall if it was because a T shirt doesn't have a collar, or because you don't see the cuff at the end of the sleeve, or both?

Miami Vice audition?

Either way its sartorially suitable (pun intended) and works for casual summer wear IMHO.

And CR for some unknown reason decided not to stock their linen trousers in Canberra. WTF?

Yeah, that's Lyo.

 

And I always ask him how are things on the plantation when I see him in that suit.

Tbh call me a bleeding heart liberal social justice warrior, but seersucker is one of those suiting fabrics that I (personally) would never wear. Particularly, as a full suit.

The stylistic associations with wasps, country clubs and southern fried assholes is a bit much for this yellow man :foo:

I am seriously considering buying a sheersucker suit after watching Michael Douglas wearing one on 'And so it goes '. I'm dark skinned and can pull off light jackets.
Anyway today a spring jacket (olive herringbone, linen & silk).
