Late Summer is upon us, that time of year when it is difficult to so much as think about clothes unless it is to calculate how little we can get away with wearing. My body of course is long past its sell by date and keeping as much of it covered as possible is a service to the rest of mankind, which is one of the reasons why I wear a jacket so long as the water outside is not threatening to boil.
Linen safari jacket worn on the weekend with a voile shirt, cotton Simonnot-Godard neckerchief, gabardine trousers and a pair of Sloop slip-ons. The safari seems to me a little better suited to a neckerchief than a conventional odd jacket, and a neckerchief better in the heat than a regular necktie, particularly when one is not headed anywhere particularly formal.
