We had an early-August wedding to attend here in the southeast US. Naturally, I wanted to go seersucker but I couldn't because that's what the groomsmen were wearing! So, instead, I threw this together.
I needed something light-colored underneath to contrast the pants. I think it also plays well with the tan jacket. It wasn't the best fit as the collar was too tight around my neck and the material was a little too heavy for summer. It looked decent but definitely didn't keep me cool.
To contrast the bright top, I went with a darker pant in these navy blue chinos. In retrospect, I probably would have chosen something a little lighter - these had a thicker material and weren't suited for the hot weather.
