This is my friend Hal.
In this photo, he’s wearing a seersucker ascot made by Otis James right here in Nashville. And somehow. He pulls it off.
Now listen. I’m not a dude. And I don’t pretend to know that much about fashion. (Because let’s be honest, I basically just ask myself what would Whitney wear every time I look in my closet.) But, if I were a guy… would I have the guts to wear an ascot?
Otis says the goal was to rid the ascot of its “commonly-implied pretension” and to “bring it into the realm of comfortable approachability.”
So what do you think… did he succeed?
Would you ascot?
