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?

Too much?
I don't think so.

Too late for that rig?
No, not on the 4th of July.

Local restaurant. Italian.
Eat carefully.
Before telling Oldsport that I didn't think his proposed rig would be "too much," I thought about asking him what the other guests would probably be wearing. Then I said to myself: "Ah, forget it. It's not a job interview where his career is on the line. It's a family birthday party. Nobody will be judging his choice of clothing--and if anyone does do that, so what? Let Oldsport be a role model. Then some family members, years from now, might say, 'Yeah, Uncle Oldsport. Always a dapper dresser, that one. I learned a lot about clothes from watching him.'"

Birthday party on July 4th at 6 p.m. for a relative? Don't overthink the clothes. Just have a good time.

They all know how I dress and would likely be upset if I didn't dress appropriately.
I had a hunch that was the case. Be yourself.

My intent is not to nitpick or throw out cheap barbs.
Good! Less competition for those of us who have the correct attitude.

(And if you do decide to throw out a cheap Barb, let me know--I'll take her.)
