Mytailor delivered a couple of CMT white shirts made from the Simonnot-Godard voile a week ago, and I thought it would be interesting to combine three somewhat breathable materials on a sunny day and a cool evening. In the photo is one of the shirts, a Simonnot-Godard corded linen handkerchief, a hopsack suit and a not breathable at all silk necktie.
This ensemble is best suited for conservative daytime wear, though from a propriety standpoint it can be worn into evening without concern as it was on this occasion. My initial worry that the combination would prove too airy for the weather proved unfounded and I remained comfortable across temperatures that ranged from 40 degrees F to the low 60s (4 degrees C to 16). Twenty degrees is the usual breadth of comfortable wear for tailored clothing and this was no exception.
The experiment was a success.
