It never really ends, but what I think of as black tie season begins in a few weeks. That leaves about enough time to send the dinner clothes out to be cleaned and repaired if that task was not handled in the spring.
July is also a good time to refresh your accessories. A relacement bow tie. the white silk handkerchief you were thinking of last winter and never got around to acquiring. Purple silk socks and purple braces for a discreet change of pace. Evening shoes, or at the very least silk laces for your oxfords. And don't forget a supply of white silk carnations.
The season is coming.
