It's about time to bust out the seersucker.
But this season you can swap those trousers for something a little more your speed—say, a
Consider Unruly Heir
, a new line of street-meets-Nantucket threads from local fellows Joey Goodwin
and Curtis Rose. Both enjoy roaming the streets of New York—but are also equally comfortable at a
Ralph Lauren Rugby store (where Rose works) or in Palm Beach (where Goodwin grew up). Hence, a line of
clothing that captures the eclectic energy of edgy meets "pretentious attire"...coincidentally, just the

a jacket). A
little flash of the customized lining, which shows old school iconography like violins and butlers, might
help your cause. Some clean button-downs, cotton pants and shorts round out the collection, but their tour
de force accessory might be their quirky Duke of Windsor-style bowties with silver-plated
sliders—reversible, because as we know, non-reversible bowties are just impractical.
bowties...let them call you pretentious now.
