This year Pentecost in the Serbian Orthodox Holy Trinity cathedral (so it's patronal feast - Slava) in Mostar. First time since 1992 the faithful could pray here surrounded by the church walls - the cathedral was destroyed by united forces of Catholics and Muslims (read about the church in English more here)

Why why?

Why? Because it is classic, traditional, purely American and for many years synonymous with Brooks Brothers.

Why? Because I have not seen a flat light blue sport coat (nor could I imagine someone buying one). One needs to factor in the distance in the photograph and I also haven't noticed pincord sportcoats for years.

Given the date of the photo and the fact that yesterday was National Seersucker Day. This is my answer to the question. The perfect sportcoat for hot, humid, summer months.

Why not? He probably should have worn pale blue trousers and a different tie, but there's nothing wrong with that sport coat.

He looks fine, except he needs to match his accessories (folder) better.  Tongue But if he wore pants the same color they would have banned him from entering the room. Trust me here: I'm a fashion guru.

The jacket alone is just an eccentricity of style, not a problem. But a full outfit like that would have looked like something from a 1970s prom, or a movie. They actually sell suits/clothes like that for jokes/gags, often modeled after the Dumb and Dumber suits, and I've seen people on TV at least twice wearing them with that intention.



Though I must confess: I did overstate my guru status.

TBH, the one on the right isn't dressed too bad. He overdid it with the colour of the shirt, tie, hat and shoes, but otherwise it would be okay. The outfit on the left would only be nice for footbal tournaments.

Your pictures are often educational. If I answered 50.63 on a quiz, would I get the answer right?

On or more serious note, don't you thinking handing a redhead a 100 round magazine is foolhardy? They have a reputation (which may or may not be true).  But why take the chance?  Is it the danger aspect?  I am trying to understand.
