    What would the forum members consider the "ultimate" seersucker combination assuming a blue/white seersucker two button suit?

    Considering the following items style and color:

    Shoes
    Socks
    Belt
    Tie
    Shirt
    Pocket Square

    Cheated by looking at the 2004 Ben Silver catalog that featured a blue white seersucker suit and recalled a similar thread last summer:

    Shoes: White buck or brown/white spectator
    Socks: Bright over the calf argyle (pick up color of shirt or tie, but should have blue in it)
    Belt: Grosgrain ribbon style if white buck (maybe red stripe on navy) or brown braided for spectator shoes
    Tie: Bright red tie with multicolor bar stripes (one stripe color should be blue) or navy/red tie (block stripes).
    Shirt: Solid light blue or white cotton twill, with plain collar and barrel cuff. Alternative would be white or cotton oxford buttondown. Shirt should have texture-this is a casual suit.
    Pocket square: Blue linen with contrasting royal blue trim. Alternative is solid white linen.

    If you want the catalog for reference, PM me and I'll mail it to you next week. No big chore.

    I'd wear a light blue linen shirt instead of twill because the weight is a better match for seersucker.
