Today is National Seersucker Day, aka Seersucker Thursday, but we’re going to flashback to another day of the week, namely Monday, when J. Press hosted a shindig for David Coggins, who has a new book out called “Men And Manners.”
For the event, Squeeze’s own DCG was clad in a mint-green seersucker jacket made by Southwick for Haspel, which we hereby present for your seersucker-themed entertainment.
Michael Williams, founder of Americana-themed site A Continuous Lean, hosted the event. I hadn’t seen him in years and he was looking quite impressive since his move to Los Angeles. Not only is he married, he’s covered that boyish face with a beard worthy of a Mountain Man, complimented by longish hair and plenty of California sun in his complexion.
That’s him on the left, with Ivy Style contributor Al Castiel III over his shoulder:
Already dressed for an impending summer holiday was the delightful Enrique Crame III (yep, that two thirds, along with Al) of Fine & Dandy Shop, who’s pictured here with yours truly:
My stripes that night weren’t seersucker, but rather a grape-colored university stripe, club-collar oxford by Michael Spencer.
In the shot below I’m chatting with Julian, a grad student from Princeton who’s dug up some archival stuff for us before, and has several new finds. Stay tuned as they’ll be posting in the coming weeks.
Also on me, since someone’s bound to ask: griffin tie and silk-linen, two-button, darted, dual-exhaust “Continental” jacket by RL, Brooks belt, O’Connell’s gabardines, argyle socks and AE’s Acheson model tassel loafer. — CC
