My Southern Dandification has entered the next level



A month or two ago I was extremely close to getting something that I've been wanting for ages: a seersucker suit. Unfortunately, this particular men's clothier I was going to get it from offered such a deal that they were all sold out by the time I made up my mind to make a purchase. So I settled on a pair of seersucker pants from Old Navy. I wore them last weekend for UR's reunion picnic and revelled in the knowledge that I was 5 degrees cooler than everyone else (or at least my lower half was).

Unfortunately, I was not sipping on a mint julep at the time.

I do declare!

Careful there. You're treading awfully close to offending my honor. And we all know what happens then.

talk to me when you get the suit.

I have had one for years. The ladies love it. Except for my wife.

steve - Oh, you'll know when I get it. Then we'll REALLY be rolling large down in Savannah. What's the appropriate hipster-approved footwear one wears with such a suit? Pumas?

wh1skeylover - How'd you end up marrying the one woman who doesn't swoon over a Southern Gentleman?

srah said...

Wait, there are ladies who swoon over men in seersucker suits?

Micah said...

That's it! Pistols at dawn.

You wouldn't shoot a laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaydee, would you? *bats eyelashes*

Aw, Miss Srah. I was just funnin' ya. I could never, I say I could never harm a lady. Now, how's about I treat you to an RC Cola?
