I didn’t think of it as picnic attire beforehand. I just wanted to create a bold, yet classic and pleasing look for summer.
Now it seems to be a sort of picnic attire. The corn white trousers, the Panama hat and the blazer like jacket all connect to that story.
I try to balance the contrast between the cold blue shade and the warm cream white and brown shades through making pairs. The jacket relates to the socks. The brown hat band relates to the tie and the loafers. The cream white Panama hat relates to the trousers. Shirt and handkerchief are alike in shades.
Everything is bespoke: the unlined jacket made from vintage cloth, the shirt (Frank Foster), the unlined tie, the trousers, the penny loafers (Warsaw), and even the handkerchief in silk crepe.

It does just what one wants for an informal yet elegant appearance with a touch of nostalgia. Here in the American South where temperatures soar, the jacket fabric would be seersucker.
Seersucker would work as well, I agree. It’s on my wish list.
Very nice, hope you don’t get any grass stains on those trousers.
