    Just now realized that I'm employing a kinda-sorta 4th of July outfit a good solid week early. Doh! Ah well, may as well then just preemptively proclaim, here's to "the red and white and starry blue! (...and cognac)"


    Polo: Lacoste (thrifted)
    Belt: LE (thrifted) - "Made in England" - Can I still wear this on Independence Day?
    Chinos: Dockers
    Shoes: Mercanti Fiorentini
    Watch: Rotary
    Scent: D&G

    I know I'm just nit-picking, but "corded" is a general term. It doesn't do a very good job of explaining the gauge. It could still be correctly applied to sweat-inducing corduroy. I think the term you're looking for is "pincord". Pincord is often misidentified as seersucker because both are lighter and both tend to be striped. However, neither seersucker nor pincord must be multi-colored.

    Debatable on 4th of July wearing an English belt. Pretty much ANY other country of origin, fine...

    Good look though.

    Yes, it's kind is a JV squad seersucker. And Alan is right-pincord's a better description. There's a JCF Thompson in pincord that's pretty great. I actually bought one recently and would be picking it up from the tailor today if I wasn't unexpectedly diverted to LA. So it'll have to wait about a week, but I'm sure ill post a pic relatively soon.

    Cologne guy, this is great. It'd be bumped up to excellent if a pair of socks were thrown into the mix.

    Robbo - I've mentioned it before but I do like that belt.

    The pants aren't photographing well but it's a really light brown linen color. It's a light brown with some white threads woven in so it's showing up as gray in the pics.

    I love my Sperrys too, but you dress so damn nice all of the time, that the boat shoes are kinda throwing me, at least based on the pics. I don't mean to be over-critical or whatever - like I said, the look is great! - just something a little off that I'm feeling with those top-siders, that's all, bud.
    Thanks, that's a good point. The structured jacket and boat shoes are probably too far removed in formality. It would have looked better with the Stafford wingtips...

    Vicious, this looks nice, but that polo yesterday was like a bespoke shirt.
