Sometimes I want to kick myself. You see, about two years ago I spotted some Scabal tropical worsted similar to the cloth of the suit on the yachtsman in the illustration. A black, gray and white pinstripe that appeared light gray from a distance, I thought it would make a single breasted summer suit that would look great with spectator shoes. But, since that was not much of a priority at the time, I didn't acquire it.
Of course, when I thought to get it this month it was sold out. The moral of this tale is when you find yourself thinking about something repeatedly, you'd better find a way to get it. For you may not pass that way again.
