EDIT: For lulz, whoever is up, want to play clothing roulette?  Pick a number between 1 and 1153 (I rounded up) and I'll post the corresponding pic for the next few minutes until I fall asleep in my chair. 

Twinsies! I took 1500 pics yesterday. Another 1000 on tap for today. Why do you think Im up this early? ffffuuuu.gif

I'm not an authority on that. My guess(es) would be: 1) Someone bought the top w/o looking/finding the pants; 2) They didn't put out the SC yet (I looked up and down for that thing and couldn't find it); 3) The donor got too fat/skinny for the pants, but not the SC, and donated just the pants; or 4) somehow they were separated during the donation process and one went here, the other went there.

 

Either way, I'm going back either today or tomorrow to check if it was my second guess.

Seersucker odd trousers aren't a new thing. They sell them all over the place.

I'd guess that, for some, a full seersucker suit is too old-timey, but a seersucker odd jacket or pair of trousers is more doable. Plus, since seersucker is more casual, you might want to wear it in contexts wear a suit wouldn't be appropriate.

Have some past due shot outs to give:

 

Big ups to Lookngr8 for those two sweet ass Barbour NWT shirts he hooked me up with, even after I gave him shit for initially leaving them behind, haha.

 

Props to Xenos for an absolutely killer deal on an amazing Marienella tie (my first!!).  Now I see what all the hype is about.  Fantastic tie.

 

More props to Dolfan954 for some pretty much pristine J. Crew suede wingtips...another thing I've been looking for for quite awhile.  It was his first trade so I hope he's happy with the results.  Very generous and fair guy.

 

And last but not least, Ocooney once again proves why he's the absolute man.  Huntsman suit and 2 awesome ties for a song of a price.  This guy is just beyond generous.

 

These dudes are all awesome sellers/traders and everyone should hook them up.  Thanks fellas.

That is awesome, Spoo, and definitely not old-timey. Personally I am a big seersucker fan. When I said "I'd guess that, for some, a full seersucker suit is too old-timey," I was thinking the traditional J Press sack with bow tie, spectators, and straw hat.

Ball-er. I've never seen a peak lapeled seersucker jacket and on paper it sounds like it wouldn't work, but that looks awesome. Maker? Tom Ford?

Wow, 10/10 drool.gif.

If I did jealously as well as I did giving up smoking (in my tenth day and still climbing the fucking walls), I would be plastering ffffuuuu.gif's all over this post.

This suit fit confirms why I like Tom Ford so much inlove.gif

Is that real Seersucker or just a classic wool or cotton blend made to look like good old fashioned Seersucker?

I'd imagine you're looking for a daypack/duffle bag and not an external frame pack, am I correct? I ask because I have a blue Jansport D2 external frame pack that I need to find a new home.
