After looking at my new Brooks Brothers catalog, I realized that Spring is just around the corner. Yes, it is still freezing in my neck of the woods, but things will change and the pollen will come. I hate allergy season! When the weather is in transitional mode, it can be difficult to dress accordingly. It is too warm for winter tweeds and flannels, but too cold for full blown sping/summer apparel. This Brooks Brothers ad is a good example of how to make the transition. Buying clothing in neutral colors made from linen, cotton, or light weight wool are good choices. A heavy linen can keep you warm and cool at the same time, and its natural rumple is appropriate for early spring. It is also a good idea to include a touch of color, and pink is a good choice. I also love the fact that Brooks Brothers is promoting the spectator shoe this season. The shoe is a classic, and it looks great with summer apparel. I own a pair of brown and canvas Brooks Brothers spectators, and I look forward to wearing them with my linen suits. I love seersucker and white linen suits, but save those for the warmer days of spring/summer. Come to think of it, I could use a double breasted linen suit in light brown. Let's go get measured!
