Another year, another gloriously fashionable Seersucker Social. DC's vintage-loving social club, the Dandies and Quaintrelles, brought a little touch of class to their Saturday leisure. After a bike ride through a beautiful early June Rock Creek Park, hundreds of impeccably dressed Washingtonians parked at the Hillwood Estate and relaxed with mint juleps, croquet, and what must only be termed as polite conversation.
Why do they do it? We're not really sure. But event after event (Dandies & Quaintrelles founder Eric Brewer also puts on fall's Tweed Ride), we remain consistently grateful for the über-fashionable eye candy.
