    I can see your [​IMG] on the lack of tie, I agree. I dont get it on the shoes though. I mean this seriously - I always thought of spectators and seersucker as hand in hand. My other option I had out this morning was the polo suede RL Redways. Would that have been a better option?


    ill say again i think the no tie was a good move with the suit and shirt. the ps was enough for me. it would be a bit monochrome but i think no socks and the right blue (suede?) loafers would have been kick ass. very spreezy. or if the spectators had been blue and white also i think it might have been better. anywho...

    I was hoping you would chime in, Southern master. [​IMG] No way am I rocking a bow - but yeah, and as others mention below, I agree it should have had a tie. I thought it would have worked without, but I can see it really does need one. But I am confused on the shoes - Are spectators not appropriate with a seersucker? Keep in mind I usually do not do this sort of steezy, I thought it was appropriate.

    Specs are 100% appropriate with Seersucker. I can't think of a type of suit they are more appropriate with...maybe linen. The ultra-traditional choice would be white bucks with a red crepe sole (especially if you live in Oxford Mississippi), but those shoes are fine. It was the shoes mixed with the suit and the exploding square...but no tie that really threw the mix off, if you ask me.

    Thanks - so say the square was TV folded and I had a navy solid twill tie on (My choice before I decided to chuck it). Shoes work? They are brown and white BTW.

    I think the shoes would work fine. Don't forget, there is a anti-spec contingency here on SF that doesn't like them in any circumstance. You would get nothing but compliments down here on that fit.

    Hey, two cameras would be a great way to capture two different fit angles simultaneously. That's taking SF to a whole new level. Someone out there HAS to do this! [​IMG]

    Yep, good idea!

    Great fit on the coat. Not a fan of the shoes though.

    Another gorgeous day by the river!

    Yey. Very nice!

    Re-posting both fits in the casual thread as well, if you guys don't mind.

    Loving the bow tie, but that SC is way snug (sorry mate, not trying to be a prick).

    Thanks man. How is your shirt project coming along?
    It's moving forward but at a glacial pace, as with all MTM projects. Your last post has me wondering if MyTailor.com could create a collar in any way similar to yours if I showed them a copy of your pic. Then again, what would be the point? I'm not man enough to iron my own shirts, so I'd just flatten out the roll anyway.

    Not to put too fine a point on it, friend, but you're placing a rather heavy burden on that jacket button. It also appears that your jacket sleeves and your shirt sleeves are too short. Hard to tell from this photo, though.

    I think the shoes really made the entire outfit rock. IMHO the peak lapels really worked, though I could not prescribe them to the average guy...you are used to being that bold and can pull it off. I am supporting the lack of a tie due to the following:

    1) It's a Friday in the summer and most d-bags are in Dockers and a polo
    2) The lapels and the PS have a lot of visual interest
    3) Anyone is the Spooniverse is so used to see you in a tie (I mean...the guy wears full suits on SATURDAYS) that by virtue of not wearing one you are making a pretty bold statement

    And of course...

    4) It's Spoo. Everyone else just wishes they could pull it off.


    All in all I can't really recommend it for the Boardroom or a big client meeting, but for a casual summer look? Outstanding.

    I'm not speaking about the length. Please use Google for 'the Italian cut', or if you want, there are plenty pictures to find; even in the non-satorialist thread.
    Dude, you're talking like we don't understand what you're talking about..! [​IMG]

    Like the colour palette (a lot!), especially the watch strap, but like everyone else has said, the jacket is a little tight, and the sleeves are way too short! (Sorry!)
