A gentleman dresses for the weather at hand, not the weather he wants, even if it means dressing for two seasons at once, as it so often does this time of year in New England.
Few things are as silly as ignoring the weather when you dress. Once, we had four seasons: a hot one, a cold one, and two vague ones. But the fashion industry has not only rendered the vague ones obsolete, they've even got us buying bathing suits in January and overcoates in August. The result is a bunch of young people wearing flip flops and shorts on a night that barely reached 40 Farenheit, and fur collared parkas on a balmy 60 degree day in October.
Remember, it is in fact possible to be both seasonal and weather appropriate in your dress. All you have to do is think about it for a minute or two before you choose the days attire.
p.s. Shop News
I missed getting new stuff in the Shop last week due to my jaunt to New York. This week, we've got plenty of the right products for "in between" times such as these. Also, the new "On Sale" page currently features some choice tweed and outerwear. Time to make room for the warm weather goods. Call it Spring Cleaning.
