Yesterday's post about the Concours d’Elegance triggered an email exchange with a reader who mentioned wearing raspberry linen trousers with his white summer dinner jacket, and I was contrasting that preppy vignette with my mental picture of how most of the attendees at the Concours will be dressed. Not that shorts, sandals and a tee shirt aren't practical (though they will be very impractical at Pebble Beach if the fog comes in), but they are definitely light in the elegance department.
Which brought my mind to this Leslie Saalburg illustration that's about as elegant as a man sitting on sand can be on a summer's day. I think Bentley (one of the Concours partners) should strike a blow for elegance and give an ensemble like this to every Continental GTC purchaser. I know some Bentley buyers could use it because I saw a guy wearing a really bad pair of jeans pumping gas into his GTC last week. As the saying goes, there oughta be a law.
Have a great weekend.
