The choice between seersucker and chino isn't necessarily a tough one. Seersucker is a little more bold and much more at home in the south (or Cape Cod) than its chino counterpart. I'm not saying a seersucker suit would be out of place somewhere else, but I would assume the average onlooker might seem a little perplexed at your sartorial moves. Chino, on the other hand, is a tad more "normal" ("acceptable" doesn't seem like the right word here because that would imply there really are rules to this sorta thing and there aren't). With all this in mind I dig how J. Crew has released a khaki colored version of their seersucker Ludlow suit. It should come as no surprise that I like this option the best as it is a meeting place between the aforementioned options. The color palette of the suit plays more into the hands of geographic commonplace and you still get the wonderful texture/feel of seersucker. The suit separates even have a vest you can snatch up if you want to get as natty as possible. The entire kit can be had for $384 which is quite good in my opinion especially considering how strong J. Crew's suiting is. If you're plus one-ing it this summer, get your gear right and keep it sucka free.
