On a day too gloomy for photography, thanks be to Esquire's illustration of Raffles Bar in Singapore so many years ago. The color scheme reminds us of the lighter palette that men should don when the sun returns, as it surely will. For cream, tan, light gray and mid blue are the staples of warm weather clothing.
The drawing is also a reminder that the shirt jacket is a fine fair weather friend. In cotton drill or linen, it provides carrying capacity without the warmth of a fully constructed coat.
Wear them in lighter colors.
