    RDiaz, I'm not claiming that the boater is inherently costumey, but that I would feel as though I were wearing a costume. But DocHolliday makes a strong point...

    SeƱor Crust, the sales associate suggested the same about the fit, but I don't like the hat to sit anywhere near my eyebrows. Any larger, and that's where it ends up. Ultimately, though, I think it's a hat for a man who's at maybe the next step in life from where I am. I liked it, but I'm not ready for it.

    I'm not feeling this Spoo. Everything is so somber, whereas I feel there needs to be something a little brighter to make this pop. I think a different tie, with some more color would add some needed balance to the fit. All of the pieces are awesome, as usual, but the combination is under-saturated.

    I saw this silk and fell in love with it...some vintage stuff Ercole brought over from the OC...very cartoony, not meant to be serious at all.
    I felt the contrast between blues was enough, what color would you go with, just a solid white? Its a s/s tie, think Seersucker, just wanted to nust it out.
    I had a PS in it in the morning, but it was overload with it, so I took it out.
    LOL, you need to decide based on the coursework...test on Friday.
    LOL, THX man...in the finals for my hockey league...best of 5, down 0-2 but pulled out a 5-4 OT win last night...4 points including the game tying goal with 3 minutes left in the third and the assist on the game winner in OT...the 'stach lives to see another day!

    Spoo, I think that's one too many patterns going on, bro.

    I love just about everything you post, this included, but feel you're better than the skinny end too long sprezz. I think this look has enough sprezz without it...

    When it allows you to wear such great clothes, why want it to end? Certainly on this island we all had more than enough of the earlier grey damp and wet, but now it's dry, relatively bright and the days are lengthening fast. Interesting classical dressing is greatly enabled by lower temperatures!

    Looks like the worst wig ever!

    But I agree with your post about T's tie NYI - it's just not necessary and spoils an otherwise excellent outfit IMO.

    And Sugarbutch if you're still in Nawlins there are two excellent hat shops, one on Royale and one in a side street in the left as you walk north on Canal. Theres also an Allen Awemonds shop in that mini mall near the Sheraton on Canal. Happy shopping, don't come home empty handed/headed!
