Some summer inspiration from Mr Gable
splendid fit, NOBD!
But which linen suit should I wear? It's going to be a tough choice.
In the spirit of the original concept for the contest; do you get extra points for the more linen one wears?
Linen Suit, shirt, and pocket square.
There are no points awarded, Mr. Claymore. Victory depends on your capturing the zeitgeist, not strictly adhering to the rules. However, chasing that ephemeral je ne sais quoi will do you no good either. Best to follow the advice of Patricia Mae Andrzejewski:
what about the tie, shoes and socks?
The real problem is if you win, then you've won. As TTO and SpooPoker know, that's a lot of work.
I wonder if we are too removed from the "good old days" for my old pith helmeted outfit to capture the zeitgeist. I guess we will find out Friday.
I've found that linen shoes just don't hold up like I want them to and I draw the line at linen undergarments, just too scratchy.
Ties; that, I have plenty of:
8oz I think, I'm in the city so the seersucker didn't seem appropriate for today...
Good to see you last night Theo!
You as well Jim. Welcome to the Forum, lovely suit .
I wore the same get up, I wore recently, again to work today - with a different shirt though (same cloth, different collar, expect a post on this soon).
here are the pictures from when I wore it last time:
is this kosher or is recycling previous fits frowned upon?
Suit is tropical wool, shirt cotton, tie cotton/silk
ND WE HAVE SOME CONTENDERS!!!!!!
