A navy roll neck with vertical burgundy stripe and Levis.

Sounds nice, but I see you were distracted when I was explaining the uploading pics' part, Mo!  ;)

I've been myself a couple days up North and as a mate (and fellow forumee) said, in this pic I look like an extra of "Ski Party" (I took it as a compliment, btw  ;D)

A bit of seersucker action to illustrate the dark/light jacket/strides debate. Have a nice weekend, lot!



Another foggy day here, Laird  ;)

Always a sucker for seersucker! +1 for me

Photo does look a little like "man mysteriously abducted, only clue is this picture of unknown man found on their phone"
Initials B.B.

Always good to see that bespoke seersucker get an airing Syd.
Mine is a much more humble version. Along with the pincord I mentioned recently, which I dress up with a shirt and tie for work trips, I got a paper thin uniqlo one for about $25 to wear casually but very rarely get it out. The jacket wearing season is so short round here (still hasnít arrived yet!) that when it does finally come along I have a lot of competition between, harringtons, monkeys, MA-1s, A-2, denim truckers, leather and suede truckers, ice cream jackets, cotton, linen and seersucker blazers and boating blazers. Before I get through half of that lot itís too hot to be needing one again!

In fact, the pic's one is the Uniqlo you mention, Rod!  ;D. Outstanding value for money and I admit it fits me quite good, I was lucky with the size (an XXS if I remember correctly  :o). The bespoke one plays in another league really  8). We're barely entering jacket wearing season here too, so my seersucker jackets come handy. If we're talking flannel and tweed, their moment is quite brief here.

As a mate said, being abducted in the current circumstances would be a release more than a kidnapping!  ;D. And if it's the last pic, you better look smart in it  8)

Know what you mean, hermano, but I welcome taking some sartorial risks now and then. With the wider chinos I was aiming for a more 40s-50s look, a bit like our Adam, and the overall shape of the polo -wide collar and shorter than usual, which goes well with high-waisted troos- lent superbly to that, IMO.

Ahh, sorry I missed that bit about the photos.
And my soul has been psychedelicized.
