An archetypal Southern gentleman could be adorned in seersucker. He would drink mint juleps on the finest occasions.

A gentleman has an inherent taste for the finer things in life. As was said of Scarlett O’Hara’s daddy Gerald, “There was no need for him to acquire a good head for whiskey. He had been born with one.”

Garrett Cox has that same knowledge as a true Southerner. Mr. Cox was kind enough to share his photos from the 2011 Steeplechase at Kingston Downs. In this photo: Hat by Orvis, Sunglasses by Fly Fisherman, Bow Tie by Brooks Brothers, Kerchief by Jos A Banks, Shoes, socks, belt by Johnston Murphy, and Suit by George Saratsiotis — a tailor in the small town of Americus, GA. It’s this gentleman’s opinion that “seersucker suits should be purchased in small towns in the South.”

There is nothing finer than a well-dressed gentleman in the springtime.
