Summer ends officially on different days in different places, or at least that is what I am told. It seems to have ended in Ireland on the first of September, for example, though it continues until the 21st here in the United States. That makes a certain amount of sense given that it was over a hundred degrees F (38C) in Nashville this past weekend but barely reached the low sixties (16C) in London.
Summer is of course the principal time for cream colored trousers in linen, gabardine and lightweight flannel if you can find it. Dr. Keith Churchwell is wearing a pair in the photograph, and looking good in the process if I may say so. His tan jacket has just enough cream in the pattern to soften the contrast with his trousers and pull the look together while its blue overcheck is complemented by his necktie.
Oh, and by the way, publication of ASW may be a little spotty this coming week as I am travelling to visit family in Florida, where it is still unquestionably summer for at least a little while longer.
