    I think it depends on how formal the occasion is and to some extent the temperature.

    Wait, you smell that?
    Well if you wear it during the day and keep it on to another event at night, I don't see why you are compelled to change. But whether one should do it as a decision when getting dressed for an evening event, I don't know. I'm not cool enough to pull of a seersucker suit. I'd look like, well, a sucker.

    In a hot environment (Texas I assume?) I think it's fine to keep your seersucker jacket on, I think it would be geographically appropriate. Besides, it's kind of silly to change in and out of clothes because of the time of day.

    I wear seersucker day and night. I can't imagine there being a rule against it.[​IMG]

    Have done this at the height of summer, when the days are really long and dinner starts while it's still light. It's fine, I think.

    Seeksucker is ostensibly a weather fabric. So if it's hot enough feel free to wear it. On a warm summer night in Charleston, SC, you'll see seersucker everywhere.

    Indigo and black seersucker looks great at night.

    I also wear a dark seersucker shirt (check not lines) in the summer.

    What are Atticus and the judge supposed to wear when they're out sitting on the porch?

    Well, I wore it last night and the sky didn't fall. I did, however, get a lot of attention from teh gheys which made me uncomfortable.

    As did I this week in South Carolina. The sky didn't fall there either, although there was some thunder and the sky opened up a bit.
