Late afternoon birthday party - Seersucker and such ...

Over the 4th of July weekend I will be attending a birthday party for a family member at a local FL restaurant. The party is due to start at 6:00 pm. I am planning on wearing a Blue Seersucker Jacket, Navy Chinos, White OCBD (either PPBD or other), probably repp tie and White Back shoes. Too much? Too late for that rig?

Local restaurant. Italian. Looks somewhat upscale.
Good question. The guest of honor has a new 'white jacket' he will be wearing. Otherwise, it will be a guess as to what people would wear. I do have a question though, what part of my outfit would give you concern about what others are wearing?

I think I'll change up to either a plaid or knit tie. I am reserving he White Bucks as an option. If I don't wear them, I'd most likely wear my AE Oxblood Graysons or Cavenaughs.
Agreed Charles Dana. I was even trying to have a fun discussion here. They all know how I dress and would likely be upset if I didn't dress appropriately.

Ha, yes, never noticed the autocorrect from 'White Bucks' to 'White Black.' Sorry for the confusion.

This birthday is a pretty important milestone. At a minimum the guest of honor and his wife will be dressed appropriately (Sport coat for him, dress for her; the couple are my wife's sister and brother-in-law (guest of honor)). I feel comfortable with my choice of attire, although, I think I will take Fading Fast's recommendation and switch over to the Stone Chinos vice the Navy. I was waffling on that as it was.

I guess my real question was, and I sure didn't make it clear, is the Seersucker jacket ok after 6:00 pm? I assumed in FL is was going to be ok.
