While we're at it.

I'm getting a new seersucker suit made. Memorial Day is pretty much here, and my old Alan Flusser number is showing its age (in fact, a post to a certain usenet group regarding same was the genesis of Poppy and I me becoming pals).

I figured since it's Confession Sunday, the day in which we commiserate/sneer at each other's quirks, likes, proclivities and preferences, I might get this in before the curtain goes down.

As you were.

    Fix that solecism or the 25th Drivelversary bash is off!

    And I don't mean the sartorial one.

    I love it when y'all start in with the dirty talk.

    Seersucker? Seersucker? Isn't that the fabric little girls' gingham dresses are made from? :-)

    Seersucker really?

    Searsucker? Ooooooo-k. I thought that was what little boys wore for their Easter outfits. Searsucker short trousers and a blue blazer.

    No, it's for gentlemen who need wear a suit in the swelter of a subtropical summer.

    The problem with seersucker suits has traditionally been the tailoring (or lack thereof), so they look as if the wearer stores them not in a closet, but in a bottle.

    Lastly, often one finds that blizzard white and wedgwood blue combination which is unflattering to most men. I opt for ivory and navy.

    I've got no problem with seersucker, even of the blizzard white and wedgwood blue ilk. You know that.

    But here's something I've been wondering for a long time: what have you got against the use of the word "to" when you're using an infinitive? You like to leave it out, and I'd like to know why.

    I figure you're scrimping on prepositions so you can spend more on seersucker suits. Or adjectives. Am I right?
