The seasonal start of men wearing Linen, Madras, light-colored Khakis and lots of pastels has begun!

So, What are you wearing today?

Still Shetland sweater weather here, Billax. We probably won't get there for another month.

59º with light breezes in Durham.Overcast, but no rain so far. Here's what I'm wearing:

Though I have other Patchwork Madras sport coats, I didn't have anything with these colors. Maybe I bought it because a new Madras jacket for 30 bucks including shipping was irresistible to me. Is it perfect? No. It is a 2 button jacket and is 1/4" shorter in length than all my other 42 Regulars.

It's gonna take a few washing/cleanings to fade out. I'm OK with that. Moreover, if I wear the jacket 5 times a year for 6 years, it's a buck a wearing Madras sport coat. Heck, I may even last 6 more years... and turn my hypotheticals into reality :)

Nice colors. Where did you get this nice-looking madras jacket for $30??

Gamma,
Some place called Boscovs– https://www.boscovs.com/ast/mens-sportc ... %20Blazers

At the moment, they appear be out of the Madras sportcoats.

I don't recall how I found this site, but I do like the jacket.
