You see that model, right there? The one wearing the khaki suit? I am going to go out on a limb here and say, dammit, I want to be friends with this guy. Most times, the guys modeling the clothes I dig, I really am more into the “Wanna smash you in the grill” mind frame, but something about this guy, mainly the suit, screams, “Bring your lady, and the four of us shall enjoy brie and wine on the deck of my yacht.” And as that is what I am aspiring to in life (yachts and stinky cheeses at my disposal), it’s going to start with a sharp, simple suit like this.
That said, last week when I opened the topic of the khaki suits my brother wishes to outfit not only outfit himself in, but his best man and groomsmen, as well, I got a response from the folks at L.L. Bean Signature. They sent me a snapshot of one of their khaki suits which will be available 3/15/10. While I dig the J. Crew ensemble I originally proposed, as I’ve had the chance to try it on, this one looks just as high-caliber and on par with the Crew varietal, not to mention a price-point fit for….us working folk. Honestly, if we’re looking to outfit an entire wedding party, $155 for the jacket and $59 for the pants is appealing, as not every groomsman rakes in the dough* like yours truly. March can’t come soon enough, for a number of reasons.
