With rakish details like neon pick-stitching and a printed boater hat lining, this suit has all the whimsical personality we’ve come to expect from Ted Baker, but, the overall construction is still business. I’ve styled this look three ways to give you some ideas of how to pull off this suit in a not-so “I’m on vacation” kind of way”.
(Earlier this month, the British brand opened up its first Pennsylvania location, just outside of Philadelphia at the King of Prussia Mall.)

This summer has already been full of Derbies, Preaknesses & Stakes and the style that typically accompanies those events warrant seersucker & bowties for guys. If you’re interested in breaking the mold, but, stilling fitting in with the crowd, a navy linen suit may be your next best option. Below are some styling tips to get your through this outdoor pony season.
- Only add one additional pop of color. In the case of this outfit, the knit tie complements the suit and shirt without screaming “look at me”
- More than likely, it’s pretty sunny out at the event you’re attending. A straw Panama hat will pretty from the sun’s rays and it’ll go well with the theme of the day
- Footwear | You could go with a pair of white bucks (if you want to give off the Dandy vibe) or stick with a tan leather loafer. The refined shape & structure of the loafer will keep the look from straying into themed wear
