PHOTOS: Seersucker Ride

photos by Dakota Fine and Chris Chen

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…

    these photos are incredddddddible

  • MEMEMEMEMEME! says:

    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.

  • svetlana Svetlana says:

    cooler-maybe. sweatier-DEFINITELY

  • koko says:

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

  • john b says:

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

    Any planned again for this summer?

  • Shauna Shauna says:

    35mm for the win, Dakota. Nice job.

  • 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

  • Jeff Martin says:

    Awesome shots max Dakota!

  • Linnie says:

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

  • 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 DCLX.org 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:

    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:

    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
