    Consistently good posts.

    grazie.

    Mossrocks, I think pB was referring to your tie.
    That is correct. You mentioned black shoes and your colors plus that tie suggested wedding in my mind. Looks good nonetheless.

    Yeah, I know, thanks for the compliment. Incidentally: both the suit and tie were the ones I wore at my own wedding.

    Thanks. I wear it probably 156 hours out of 168.

    We've been expecting you, Mr. Bond.

    Ha. Thanks.

    I got a painted rock this year. What did you get, Spoo?

    Are you serious? I just got a painted rock. 100% serious.

    Ahhhhhhhhhh. Much better (and I don't even like yellow ties). I will second Spoo's comment about the PS; maybe linen or cotton with a contrast edge more casually stuffed, or in that blue from the tie? Maybe even something that works with the tan in the seersucker? I think o/o would have you go sockless, though!

    1930's Boater Redux....(be warned, it's a touch 'costumy')

    I just finished removing the collar from an old shirt and stitching in some new button holes so I could try out this vintage 'double round' collar I've had for a few years...thought I should go the whole hog with the belt-backed linen DB and the boater!

    Summer is officially here. So, why not greet it with some color?

    Agree with Spoo, much better. Seersucker is already an FU fabric, so these calmer details make it more reasonable. [​IMG]
    Happy Solstice, everyone. Anyone want some ice cream? Don't even discuss the wrinkled trou. These were pressed maybe an hour before this photo. Humidity is killer today. [​IMG] Details.

    Glad Theo and Mike got the anti-CBD memo I sent.

    Waiting on % to check his email...

    Lovely outfit. Tie might be the only thing I wouldn't choose... is that a courtroom? If so, seems a bit informal.

    Wanted to play up the subtle berry stripe in the suit fabric. Not a courtroom, but a room in the courthouse.

    On you, it is totally approrpriate. Does not look like a costume to me. Well done.

    As a matter of fact, aside from the boater, I will DTO this shortly.

    Very splashy and summery. I am not a huge fan of that shirt - maybe a blue plaid instead?

    This is a good summer look without being too OTT, even with the boater. The trou cause me to pause a bit, but I like the blue overcheck that plays with the blues on the top. I'd like to see this with brown suede shoes or specs.

    This is a nice almost CBD look - the blue coat gives it a flip to FU. Well done. And you're training your padwan well.

    I had considered a colored PS, but thought that discretion would be the better part of valor, especially considering the riot of color that my first go-round with this suit had been, but yes, blue would have been the color that I would have chosen for the PS. As for no socks, my office might well have taken offence at the sight of my naked ankles (I do believe that it is a violation of the dress code, even though my office is business casual).

    Until such time as I actually tried wearing seersucker, I had no idea exactly how much it is indeed an FU fabric, making its own demands, visually - it is so much lighter, visually, even than a solid tan suit fabric.

    Glad that I seem not to have elicited adverse comment - so far [​IMG] .


    Check my kid above for how to do Seersucker, Crusty.

    IMHO, you have way too much light color here. You should have brought in something else. A pale blue shirt, a darker tie...some contrast somewhere. It looks nice, but to me seems washed out.

    Mike
