These blazers were uncovered at a local thrift shop last month. $5.49 each. Given the lack of labels I can only assume they were made-to-measure, but fortunately the fit on me is almost perfect. (I always need the sleeves altered.)
The ties are all true Indian madras, from Lands' End, Gant, and Resilio. Though picked up at different times, each tie cost only one dollar.
Given the absurd brightness of this stuff, I like to keep the rest of the gear simple. A white/light blue shirt paired with white/tan linen trousers, and burnished tan loafers.
I realize the more popular shoe choice would be white bucks, of which I own several pair, but for this type of outfit they blur the line between classic summer swagger and classically cheesy costume.
What's your go-to summer blazer? Seersucker, gingham, madras, solid linen?
