Ha! and I thought boating jacket
Boy I love boating jackets. With a straw hat of course. What are the boating hats for men called? Made of straw, flat on top and flat brimmed, with a black ribbon.
Skimmers. Or simply straw boaters.
The boat blazer isn't really pin stripe since the stripes are so wide.
I'd call those wider stripes chalkstripes.
That is not a chalkstrip. This
is a chalkstrip. The thing from Viyella is an abomination that should not be seen outside Henley (and Viyella really should know better).
I love the fabric but I've gotten a little too thick and floppy for the style, alas. Also, with all due respect to fine English tailoring (which I adore and envy), I can fly to Seoul, have three close-to-comparable suits made, stay in a nice hotel for three nights and still have money left over for nice meals from 2,500 pounds.
