Broadcloth on a Hot Day

Photo by Salt Water New England


  1. Mercer makes a nice seersucker shirt, as well. Comfy in the hot weather!

  2. The horizontal creases make the chinos look a bit tight to me - good excuse to buy a new pair.

    1. In my opinion, the chinos are not "too tight."
      The creases are from sitting down and humidity.
      This fellow is able to fully put both of his hands in his pockets with ease and a bit of room to spare. If these pants were "too tight" he wouldn't be doing that. Enough of the khakis from Omar the Tentmaker, already. It's 2020.

  3. I may be a contrarian, but I find the open weave of Oxford cloth (not pinpoint) cooler than broadcloth, even though broadcloth is lighter weight. Of course that refers to an OCBD that is soft and not professionally laundered. Maybe I need to give broadcloth another try.

  4. "Casual elegance." A term my old mother uses now and again. And how refreshing different and far removed from how most understand and interpret the term casual in 2017.

    Best Regards,
