It’s Memorial Day Weekend, which means that it’s time to change out the wardrobe for those summer only pieces that you’ve been itching to wear ever since the spring blossoms dropped their blanket of pollen over your car.
If you’re a rules driven person, it is now officially OK to wear:
Seersucker Suits (From the excellent photo spread “An American in Shanghai” in this month’s GQ)
White or Cream Trousers and Jackets (or your white linen suit!)
(Polo by Ralph Lauren Linen Sportcoat on sale)
White Dinner Jackets not only in the tropics. (Image Bogart-Tribute.net)
The Spectator or Correspondent Shoe (Crockett & Jones through Ben Silver)
Or White Bucks (with red rubber soles… through O’Connell’s Clothing because that’s the only place I could find them on the web)
And of course, your madras ties (from Polo) — or madras in general….
Don’t forget your sunglasses and sunscreen….
