The first day of July is the real start of summer in my book, and we are promised our annual week of sunshine and heat to celebrate it. Time for polos, espadrilles, and cotton neckerchiefs and spectator slipon shoes, though I freely admit that I had the latter out for a spin in June.
One thing that is not seen much any more is a soft cotton jump suit like the blue thing in the illustration. Winston Churchill was famous for them of course but they have been rare on the ground since. Someone like Carhartt probably makes one, but who?
