A reader suggested yesterday that I stop wasting his time by describing the weather in my posts, and simply focus on the style, as if style is somehow independent of the weather. That may be true on the catwalk, but, as I wrote, in life a man should dress for the locale, the season, the occasion and the weather in that order.
After all, a wardrobe is supposed to provide a selection of clothing for any likely set of circumstances. Weather varies, and the felt hat chosen for scattered showers is likely to be inadequate for a downpour. Clothing requires context, in my opinion,at least until it becomes homogenous and then there is no point. We can talk about something else.
In the photo, the navy blue flannel double breasted is worn with a red pin striped shirt, white linen pocket square and a silver herringbone necktie.
