    Beckenstein, 39th street, has a white on white seersucker cloth. That would make a casual, easy to wear summer DB jacket. Cloth is dirt cheap, practically free. your expense is in labor and trimmings.

    I bought some seersucker from them last summer...tan on white and navy on navy...great stuff, and $10 a yard.

    While I like that in principle, the fit appears all wrong. Really like the shirt though.

    Not a fan of the fit, but the colors on that jacket are awesome .. everything was OK and then I saw the yellow eyeglass frames. [​IMG]

    I'm not the most conservative of i-Gents, but that seems too much for me...maybe for a BC buyer, but a public school history teacher? mmmmm

    I have a similar jacket (sb), so I like the look.

    I think the buttons are too close together and the elbow patches too much.

    You're right...now that ^^^ is something I could wear, and would wear, in the classroom. In fact, I just bought a Dreis Van Noten sc where the check is a bit more subtle that i LOVE.

    It only becoems an argument because you fail to see the correct side of th issue, which is mine.

    NYR, I think this DB looks great on you. You just get one like it in a darker color.

    because bowties aren't dated.

    Yes they are dated I never said they weren't but they are an accesorie and not a main peice. There is a huge diffrent between a dated accesory and a dated peice like a jacket.
