I have to say that this seersucker style looks better on older men, than in younger men. It makes older men look playful and jovial: the case here. It is the contrast of the qualities of the pattern juxtaposed with a strong character what makes it interesting.
That’s a great outfit. Yesterday’s green seersucker worked better than might have been expected but was gimmicky nonetheless. This is simply elegant. It doesn’t beg for attention but enhances the wearer quietly.
Now see, I was liking everything, including the tie, until I noticed in the closeup that it’s seersucker too.
The exact same tie pattern in e.g. raw silk would have been excellent. But matching yr suit fabric & yr tie fabric — just not quite OK. It’s like wearing a tweed tie with a tweed suit. Too much coordinating goin’ on.
Seersucker is so volatile a fabric choice that the wearer must be very careful to complement it with everything else he wears, and his grooming. If the wearer goes too sparse he looks cheap, or boring, while going too far or flashy makes the wearer look costumed.
This guy is obviously no new comer to his seersucker look. It’s really amazing how he blended his wardrobe choices to make seersucker shine.
