... my interpretation of the Jazz suit today
Sunny and warm, but not too hot this morning, so I wore my old cotton - linen blend Austin Reed jacket teamed with a blue linen shirt and old L.L.Bean cotton pants.

Almond colored linen cotton safari style sport coat with pleated and flapped patch pockets 2 on chest, 2 at hips, and latchet tab on collar (3 button), half belted, and single vented, almond colored twill chino cotton trousers (Polo RL from the 90s), flat front, flat pressed (no crease), Oxford blue linen standard point collar with box pleated and flapped breast pockets, pebble grain English tan colored leather belt with gilt simple buckle, English tan leather cap to Oxfords, ivory Panama hat, Oxford blue cotton lisle socks with red heels and toes, red bandana peeking out of my breast pocket, gold Universal Geneve wind up wrist watch from the 30s (Grandpa's), and gold pinkie ring with 3 garnets or rubies set into incised asterisks, usual half-frame brown horn and rose gold sun-glasses with green lenses. No tie; too hot, just today, and not feeling well, so couldn't abide anything around my neck.....
My disdain of casual Friday.

Linen when you are hot!
A sunny afternoon at a garden party.
Very nice! I have those exact same pants and absolutely love them!

Today's apparell for church (it's a holiday in most parts of Europe):
That is a look I've often tried to achieve, alas never to this level of perfection.
May I ask, are these woollen trousers?
Great look. Reminds me of something I saw Ian McKellan wearing in something recently.
They are, they're Polo Ralph Lauren and I picked them up in a charity shop for 10 bob!
Knitted ties are an absolute necessity, especially in solid colors. For years I wore only black ones (silk and wool), but I've recently branched out into several other colors. Etsy always has quite a few.
So many great looks there gents. Mathematicus, Casual Friday will deservedly never recover from your sartorial splendor; Xopher you've kicked that look out of the ball park and Claudio, what can I say? You gotta be the Jazz suit king!
You be got this all On Point!!!
Thanks! It's one of my more ambitious outfits so I'm glad you like it.

This isn't so much what I am wearing as it is what I want to wear this evening... I am going to dinner with my wife and in-laws at a restaurant that is casual, but still one of the nicer places in town, and I'm meeting someone new (wife's brother's girlfriend's mother). I want to wear jeans, white OCBD, blue/white seersucker jacket, brown casual leather shoes, and my Panama hat. I'd normally opt for a colored/patterned shirt and navy blazer, but the blazer is at the tailor still and I don't think I have time to pick it up today.
What do you think?
