The UPS man just delivered one of two seersucker suits I had recently ordered from Jos. A. Bank. Incidentally, the word seersucker appears to come from two Persian words meaning “milk and sugar.” The two-button jacket is 38 Regular; the sleeves are the perfect length. The pleated trousers seem to be 32″ around the waist (which is dead-on) and were finished with cuffs using my outer seam measurement of 39 1/2″. I am already matching bow-ties!
In other sartorial news, Alexis Malcolm emailed today to let me know that she had received eight yards of Black Watch tartan cloth from the mill in Scotland and that she will be constructing my next kilt this week. I can hardly wait!
