After 2 tweed rides and last summer’s Seersucker social, Dandies and Quaintrailles Club is still going strong as evidenced by the turn out for their 2nd ever natural summer response event: last Saturday’s SEERSUCKER SOCIAL @ Hillwood Museum and Gardens. The day started off with a leisurely bike ride (because if there is one thing Dandies and Quaintrailles love more thank stylish clothes, it is their vintage bikes) and culminated with an afternoon on the lawn feat. games, mint juleps and some of the best looking people in best looking clothes around. Enjoy Dakota’s photos and check in later as we’ll be adding more of them as they come in…

This is an 18+ event. ~~~~ About Jon Dore: Named one of “10 comics to watch” by Variety, Ottawa-born comedian, host and actor Jon Dore is renowned for his offbeat humour and unique bait-and-switch style. Dore is a favourite on the comedy club and festival circuit in Canada and the United States. He has hosted the Just for Laughs Festival Homegrown Comedy Competition on a number of occasions and has enjoyed sold-out runs at the Festival’s Montreal and Toronto locations, at comedy festivals in Halifax, Vancouver, Portland and Washington, DC, and at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Manchester, Tennessee. From his humble beginnings as the co-host of the cable talk show Daytime Ottawa (Rogers Television) and the irreverent roving reporter on Canadian Idol (CTV), Dore recently starred in the critically acclaimed ABC-TV series How to Live with Your Parents (for the Rest of Your Life) opposite Sarah Chalke, Elizabeth Perkins and Brad Garrett. Dore is the host of HBO Canada’s Funny as Hell, a series showcasing bold and uncensored comedy from the fastest rising comedians at the Just For Laughs Festival, currently shooting its fourth season. He is the star of his own award-winning ‘mockumentary’ series, The Jon Dore Television Show, documenting his hilarious and outrageous debates on life’s challenges and changes, from weight loss to gender. He also served as co-creator, co-producer and writer on the series, proving he is just as comfortable behind the camera. The series ran for a successful two seasons on IFC and The Comedy Network. Dore starred in the stand-up specials Comedy Central Presents...Jon Dore and Comedy Now! (CTV/The Comedy Network); appeared on a number Comedy Central’s specials including Live At Gotham, CC: Stand-Up: The Bonnaroo Experience and Mash Up; made guest-starring turns on How I Met Your Mother (CBS) and Scare Tactics (Syfy); and was the lead in the CBS pilot My Life As An Experiment. A regular on late night talk shows, Dore has the honor of being the first stand-up to appear on Conan (TBS). Dore's feature film credits include the indie drama Gus opposite Michelle Monaghan (Mission: Impossible III) and the comedy Stag, with Donald Faison (Scrubs) and Eva Amurri (Californication), which picked up two awards - Best Ensemble and Excellence in Filmmaking - at the LA Comedy Film Festival. TV Guide Canada called Dore one of the “rising stars of the future” and Toronto weekly NOW Magazine named him Best Male Stand-up. He is the recipient of four Canadian Comedy Awards including: Best Taped Live Performance (2010) for Just for Laughs; Best Performance by a Male in a Television Show (2009) for The Jon Dore Television Show; Best Writing on a Series (2008) for The Jon Dore Television Show; and Best Stand-up Newcomer (2006). He is also a two-time Gemini nominee (2008 & 2009) for Best Individual Performance in a Comedy Program or Series for The Jon Dore Television Show. ~~~ Thanks to our sponsor: More Bentzen Ball shows available at: Stay informed:

    VERY NICE!!!!!

  • Lily says:

    totes, props to you too, do you have vintage vendors at your event? the Art Deco Society of Washington fashion shows usually have them selling their wares, at the annual expo too but there was no fashion show this year so far, just the expo

  • Linnie says:

    A little more involved (drinks sponsorship, ticket sales, fashion events, photos, ride coordination, events booking) than a “casual afternoon ride up,” but props to you for your own event.

  • Lily says:

    @Linnie, my comment was intended as a compliment, and yes i can imagine the stress involved with event planning, i’ve helped plan and execute for years, that’s a 3 day weekend event with live bands 1-2 times a day, multiple venues and 350+ dancers in town for the weekend, 4-50 of which i’ve hosted and housed at any given time depending on the year…so be glad you’re event is just a “casual afternoon ride up”

  • Linnie says:

    Um, this takes a lot of work to put together. You have no idea of the amount of stress involved.

  • Jeff Martin says:

    Awesome shots max Dakota!

  • Lily says:

    isn’t there a tweed ride in the fall? seriously these should be monthly, not bi-annual, with different bands and a fashion show

  • Shauna Shauna says:

    35mm for the win, Dakota. Nice job.

  • john b says:

    As a huge cyclist and a fashion nut I am down for the next one.

    Any planned again for this summer?

  • koko says:

    When is the next one of these types of gatherings? Looks like a pretty amazing day!

  • svetlana Svetlana says:

    cooler-maybe. sweatier-DEFINITELY


    I wonder if people in the future will dress like us for throwback days.

    P.S. This would be a lot cooler if it were a 70’s polyester ride.
