I bought Jonathan Jeremiah's album Solitary Man( from 2011) on the strength of the album(Good Day) that was in the top 20 recomendations from the Accoustic Egg Box . It is easily as good as his latest album . Here is a wee taster. .

Back to track. They're not my cuppa, but I know some gents here love these things, and I guess they don't get much better than this: Belstaff made in Italy shearling jacket, it'll only cost you 2.400 Ä:




I have one but made in Angleterre and cost nowhere near that kind of money. They are great in the winter but probably not needed in a Mediterranean zone , especially at that price. .

Deal breaker for me too - unless I felt confident getting into it with a seam ripper!

I guess a skilled seamstress could do the trick. That or send a hitman to Brighton to "talk" Adam into a 3 pockets' version  ;D

Send Tomas de Torquemada.  .you still got his phone number mi hermano.  .

Yeah, it's a fixed telephone, hope it still works.  ;)

Good man ,  l knew I could rely on you. .Maybe give Jose Antonio a bell too?

Madras or otherwise that jacket looks great mate. I'd wear it in a second. Like the look of the shirt too fella. What's the story on that. Nice one.

Thank you! Jacket is vintage, picked it up maybe 7 years ago or so? Long sleeve shirt is DNA that I got a few months ago ( I think).

Nice one Brian , l love that 366 too , is that Stateside.  .

I reckon Rod is right in this, Simon, the southern connection is mentioned in some articles about seersucker I've read so far, and I think its heyday as a suit/jackets fabric were the 50s, but I'm sure it was introduced there much earlier

I never said Rodders was wrong ,  l only said we al have our own opinions.  .

Today is National Seersucker day!
I have two pairs of seersucker strides, one odd jacket, one pair of shorts and a (rarely worn) suit all in blue-grey and white stripes. Also the navy tonal blazer I posted up recently.

Itís not really a west Coast thing itís a southern states / Ivy / trad thing. Still seen very rarely over here. And on older blokes not young men.


I suppose , we all have our own opinions . .

I have 3 Seersucker jackets, but never had interest in the trousers. I guess wearing the trousers alone wouldn't be a bad look for some,  but wearing a entire suit looks too "Gatsby" to me...
I have seen seersucker suits , of the material of Brians jacket, worn well but I have only seen it done in SFO.  I don't know about the Gatsby thing but I think it looks better on a younger dude. 

The first time I saw a seersucker suit being worn, l was only a young Mod myself and thought it looked great . I went around for the rest of the day with the Peter Meaden line in my head - Wear ivy league jackets , wild buckskin shoes. .  I have never seen a seersucker suit for sale in these more temperate zones . .

I don't think they're difficult to come by in the sales of USA big brands like Brooks Brothers or Ralph Lauren, they usually sell seersucker suits every year; in USA -especially the southern states- the fabric is still popular, in fact there's a National Seersucker Day there! But I agree regarding younger chaps getting the most of those suits.
Exactly,  very much an American thing from my experience, and west coast American at that. ..
I wouldn't mind one but I suspect l'd rarely wear and I'm probably a wee bit old for one now but Woody was in a rather smart seersucker,  jaiket just about a month ago , looked very dapper . .
