special guest/ NATHANIEL ADAMS talks about his 13th OUTFIT: 13 in 13 acts



What items did you use to compose this particular outfit?
Lime green seersucker two-piece suit
Red socks with white polka-dots
Pink button-down shirt
Skinny green knit wool tie
Red and white silk printed pocket square
Black distressed calf tassel loafers from Billy Reid
How did you arrive at the decision to compose such an outfit?
This is a bright and playful summer outfit. I like the different shades of green, red, and pink in it.
Did you compose this outfit spontaneously or was it planned ahead of time?
On a scale of 10, how pleased are you with this composition/outfit? 
What roles do color, the fit, and integrity of fabric play in this particular outfit?
This suit has sadly become a little bit tight on me, but I think of the slim cut and bright colors as a rather youthful outfit. I like seersucker because of how strong and crisp it is while staying cool.




How soon would you repeat/wear this same outfit again?
I only wear this if it’s rather hot out and I want to get a lot of attention for wearing a lime green suit.
There is perhaps a spiritual, emotional, intellectual or psychological aspect to the what/how we dress. What is your personal experience in relation to this outfit?
I don’t have much of a specific personal connection to this outfit. It’s just a bit of fun.
