The is the first truly interesting summer outfit I’ve worn this year. The suit is an olive poplin, purchased off the ‘Bay. The shirt is a cotton-linen blend from Charles Tyrwhitt. The shoes are my favourite AE split toes, worn without socks.
For me, the outfit is all about the tie. It’s linen, from The Knottery[1]. I love it. Part of the reason I want to wear tailored clothes in the summer is to have an excuse to wear this tie. If I’m going to nitpick, it is a bit narrow through the body, which makes the knot a bit shorter than I’d like. The linen has a bit of a stiff hand, which means it doesn’t drape quite as nicely as I’d like. But, for affordable aesthetically stunning quality, it is unbeatable. I love the way it plays here against the horizontal stripes. The mix of scales works really well. I pulled up short on the pocket square front. However, the next time I put this combo together, I will certainly be doing something a bit more adventurous.
