    Just in time for the coming of warm weather, we have a new pink checked seersucker pocket square -- along with a new website. [​IMG] To celebrate such an occasion, Kent Wang will be sponsoring the very first Style Forum trad contest. Post your tradliest outfits in this thread. Entries will be accepted for two weeks until the end of the day (New England time, of course) Tuesday, May 22. Manton will act as an impartial judge and select a number of finalists from these submissions. Then a poll will be opened to all forum members to choose the winner from said finalists. Only photos will be accepted; text alone will not suffice. New photos only; one can't simply dig up an old photo. Full body shots are preferred. Extra points if taken in a tradly setting, such as on a yacht, at a clam bake, etc. Be creative. The winner will receive the aforementioned Kent Wang pink checked seersucker pocket square as his prize.

    Awesome, congrats on getting your website up and running. Just to let you know your square arrived in Hong Kong quite promptly (I believe 2 weeks from ship out)

    You might want to change your signature link too!

    Congratulations, KW! Expect my order soon. Is this the high ideal? [​IMG] Here's an old pic, not previously posted, to illustrate the down-played, frugal Trad - I think of this as Trad streetwear: [​IMG] Old army shirt and khakis Salvation Army charcoal "shaggy" sweater - this is the model they hand out to the homeless American Optical sunglasses Jack Purcells The Antwerp 1920 Olympics gold medalist N2 "Most", 10-metre class

    How many entries do we get? Trad + baggy pants

    [​IMG]
    detail
    [​IMG]

    Hand-me-down RL shirt (note fraying at cuffs, collar)
    BB Golden Fleece faint windowpane on blue herringbone jacket (some silk in this; probably -1)
    BB tie
    No pocket square; would be ostentatious
    Filson belt w/ quick release buckle inspired by English firehose clasps, IIRC
    Barney's olive khakis
    Hand-me-down "Churchill" white bucs

    Point of order, Mr. Chairman.

    Is that jacket darted? And what's the vent configuration?

    Thank you.
