This Just In: Polo Ralph Lauren Seersucker Double Breasted Sport Coat
$25 @ Flea Market
I got this exact same jacket in the exact same size about a year or two ago. The jacket is a little tight under the armholes, so I took it to a tailor for fixin’. Epic fail. She straight up ruined it. I took it to a second tailor who tried his best to fix it, but with little success. I sunk a bunch of money into it. It’s sitting in a box in my closet at the moment.
So this one is still a little snug in the armpits, but I’m just going to deal with it. Lesson learned. So when’s Memorial Day?
This Just In: Brooks Brothers Slim Fit Seersucker Shirt
$50 @ Brooks Brothers
A coworker hooked me up with a 40% off coupon for Brooks Brothers. Thanks, T. I picked the top shirt up this weekend. Who knows when I’ll get a chance to wear it given this crazy weather.
I also tried on the seersucker fun shirt, but find the extra slim fit to be uncomfortable. The armholes are too small, the sleeves are too slim, and the chest is too tight. Adding another 1/2 to 3/4 inch would make them perfect in my opinion. The slim fit is a tad bit too baggy for me, but I’d rather my shirts be loose than tight.
Before I got to the store, my second top choice was this denim spread collar, but they were sold out in my size. I might get this one before it’s all said and done. I’ve been looking for one of these for a while. When is the friends and family sale?
