Summer Weddings

With the talk of khaki suits and such, everyone seems to think that they're perfect for summer weddings. I'm not going to disagree, but with the amount of media summer weddings have gotten you'd think guys go to one every weekend. GQ threw together a whole slideshow, SartInc talks of weddings as often as mixtapes, and when anyone posts pictures of an odd summer suit everyone comments, "OMG THAT WOULD BE PERFECT FOR A WEDDING!" or "BOY, I SHOULD GET A KHAKI SUIT FOR MY SISTER'S WEDDING." Ok, dude, we get the picture. Point is you should have a khaki suit regardless of how many weddings you're attending this summer. And on top of that, how dope you look shouldn't be a priority. Last time I checked, a wedding is to celebrate the joining of two people in marriage. It's their day, not yours, champ. This advice goes for any day: you're not a spectacle, so don't dress like one. There's a reason why celebs can wear all sorts of wacky suits and hats. Dress with respect for yourself and others. If you already realize this, then move along; if you don't, heed my words.

I do not, in any way, endorse Vans and khaki suits.


  1. But in what other situations would it be acceptable to wear a seersucker suit outside Mississippi?

    But seriously, good perspective.
