    Black and off-white spectators - lace-up. Other than a seersucker suit, what would make a good match? Thanks.

    You can get some ideas from Astaire.

    By the way, Michel Perry had designed a new pair of Spectator shoe, available also in a balmoral model. It's in tan and dark brown.

    I'm not familiar with the term seersucker, but how about a nice thick chalkstripe?

    A light thin fabric, generally cotton or rayon, with a crinkled surface and a usually striped pattern. see http://cgi.ebay.com/ws....me=WDVW

    Oh, dear. [​IMG] (Sorry for the J.A. Banks image. Only one I could find quickly.) Bruce Boyer writes about the seersucker suit:
    I very badly want a J Press seersucker suit. In answer to your question, how about linen or poplin? The more often you wear Spectators the better.

    For a real life view, albeit with polyester mixed in, saunter into Steppin' Out during the spring/summer. If you dare... [​IMG] . They tend to have seersucker trousers in white/blue and white/pink. On occasion also jackets in the same colours. MtB

    Hmmm, If I want to create a nice 'Corpsballen' look I will definitely keep this in mind [​IMG]

    Linen would be great with your spectators.
