I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again gentlemen: leave the candy-colored zoot suits and Kool-Aid gators at home. Break out a seersucker, grey or tan suit this weekend instead. Play it understated, or have fun with a checked shirt and coordinating tie, a la Steve Harvey (no, I can’t believe I’m using him as an example either) at the Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man premiere this past week. (Click on the photos to enlarge them.)
You’ll thank me later. And check out The Sartorialist’s take on how a suit should fit (this won’t apply to those of you who like a fuller cut).
A note on footwear: classic lace-ups or wingtips look great with a suit in a solid fabric. And by all means, wear bucks with your seersucker.
