    In retrospect, Spoo-meister, you are correct - had I not been laboring under the effects of too much pinot noir from last night (a retirement party for a former boss) I might well have considered cordovan loafers with the suit, though I've worn today's loafers with this ensemble before, and not been smacked around for it previously. Live and learn - thanks for the suggestion.

    Freedom, I do have a pair of white bucks, which I've also worn with seersucker, but was smacked around a bit by one of the soi-disant experts here, stating that they were too light. I do not wear grey shoes of any description.

    I'm with you on that one Derek. I had functioning buttons put on the cuffs of both of my Isaia cotton sport coats for just this purpose.

    I know it's not something most people on here go for - but I really like the look for social occasions - as long as the coat is of a casual nature.

    Maybe it's a throw back to my youth during the Miami Vice era??? :crackup:

    white bucks + seersucker would have been traditional and good - i don't know how anyone can criticize that combination.. i saw someone with grey seersucker and grey brogues at a wedding once, and the combination looked pretty nice. any shade of brown or cordovan also goes well with blue seersucker.

    All of the action is happening here. I don't think the bottom half of the fit is keeping up with it.

    Just a quick flyby to wish the best of luck to all of my East Coast friends.

    Please heed any evacuation orders. If you live near the coast, get out. If you live near rivers, creeks, etc. and you are in a flood zone, get out.

    This storm will likely strengthen as it approaches the Outer Banks. As it travels north, It will merge with a trough and the northern located jet, which will provide enough ventilation to keep it a strong storm.

    Even if it weakens, it is huge, with an enormous windfield. It is pushing a wall of water in front of it (50 foot waves beneath it right now). It will dump massive rainfall, some of it falling on already saturated areas (like Pennsylvania).

    It is not a threat to be taken lightly.

    Stay safe and stylish.

    Mike

    I actually think we're saying the same thing. I don't like the color of the trousers against the coat much either - what you suggested would probably be better.
    My point was that even white would be a less-stark contrast against HF's coat versus the very dark Kiton.

    It dropped almost 20 in. of rain when it passed round here, and it was just a baby then.

    TTO - looks great from afar. Everything fits well. However I can't get behind the weave of that tie. I like the spread collar, but would be oodles better if it was a plain blue shirt.

    Not sure about the colour of your hat fitting that suit.
