I met a well-dressed man two night ago. Mrs. E. and I were attending a welcome back party at the Head’s house and I was introduced to the best dressed man there. Yup, he had me beat. He was a native Richmonder, who grew up in New York, prepped in Connecticut, attended college in New England and eventually wound up back in Virginia.
We had a style of glasses in common.

And striped shirts.
Of course we both had on trousers.
But he had the good sense to add a classic blue blazer and white linen pocket square. He was the only man wearing one…
Casual, yet elegant, this is an easy combination to mimic for an outdoor cocktail party when women reach for the Tory Burch tunic or Lily Pulitzer/Pucci sundress. Was he uncomfortable? I don’t think so. In classic American sportswear, he was the coolest guy at the party.
