The Pantalones

BnTailor has been advertising this summer weight tweed. I’d really like to get my hands on some of this fabric to feel the weight and texture, seeing how it differs from the heavy tweed I know and love. Regardless of how the fabric may feel, this jacket looks beautiful.

Everyone knows you wear wool in the winter, linen in the summer, and a straw hat from June 15th to Labor Day. Everyone is right. And therein lies the problem. Follow these rules and you will look like everyone else. Better that you display a little originality. On the gravest days of winter I put on my gray flannels, a cashmere tie in a sober color and my white linen jacket.

The pants keep me warm. The tie gains me entrée into good restaurants. The blazer reminds me that summer will come again.
