Affectionately known as the Official Mrs @GHT thread, always a thrill to see your hats and bespoke outfits.
You are, Sir, like many of the members here, generous to a fault with your compliments. A warm thank you to you, and to all who are so complimentary about my gifted wife's sewing talent.

Yesterday I posted, in the what are you wearing thread, a shirt that I particularly like because although it's floral in that it depicts small ferns, it's a shirt that I can wear as a compromise when I don't wear a collar & tie, but don't want one of my fabulous, flamboyant floral shirts. Here's another look at the one that I'm talking about.

Last night I wore the shirt with my new bespoke, green fedora. Cheryl a milliner in Dorchester excelled herself when making this superb hat. It compliments Tina's shirt and vice versa. On the What Are You Wearing Today thread you can see the trousers that I wore. Tina made those too and the shoes are also bespoke made by Colin of Colin Johnson Shoes.

The colours of this shirt are so versatile that I can wear my new nutmeg fedora, also made by Cheryl,
teamed up with the beige baggies that Tina made and Colin's light brown & white spectator brogues, giving it all a completely different appearance. Here's the shirt accompanied by both the green & nutmeg fedoras.

Another brilliant example of Miss Tina's artistry, craftswomanship, and attention to detail! One thing though--that specific pattern depicts palm trees, not ferns. I realize there aren't many tropical climates in your part of the world and, as such, can easily understand such a minor misinterpretation. But having lived in southern California for the past 60 years where palm trees are not at all uncommon, I can assure you that's what they are. Such a wonderful shirt!

Wow indeed, somewhere or other, I can't remember which thread, (don't you just hate the damned amnesia that the onset of old age brings?) Where was I? Oh yes, that Pop-Art shirt, what a head turner that is.

Tina has produced another Aloha style shirt that would go down quite well with the re-enacting fraternity. On appearance it looks as though it's a military camouflage shirt, look a little closer and you will see silhouettes of pin-up girls.

It’s not quite straw hat weather here in North Texas and National Straw Hat Day is over a month away. But I’m going to be a bit of a rouge this week. Next week I’m having a major back surgery and will be pretty much home bound for the next few months. So, I’m gonna break out the straw hats along with my Hawaiian shirts.

Today I’m wearing a Northwest semi-calado Panama for work. Love the ribbon treatment. I think it goes well with the woody.

It seems like just yesterday you were asking about Aloha shirts with fedoras, Bill. Well, you're way ahead of the pack now, sir! Super semi calado, and perfect graphic! What a fantastic shirt!!

94 today in my little burg-got out the straws yesterday!
Here in this little part of the world just right of the City of the Angels we're receiving a last day of reprieve today. Starting tomorrow the high temperatures are expected to be in the high-90s or perhaps triple digits and that's supposed to last until Sunday. Good thing we have air conditioning!

A fine hat, a great shirt and a true gentleman wearing them.
You will be in the thoughts and prayers of all your fellow Loungers
Bill, may your surgery be a success and bring relief and comfort.

Hope you were safe from the weather yesterday, Bill.
