The White Dinner Jacket
As the pollen began to make me sneeze today, I realized spring is truly on its way. Therefore, I am continuing to focus on spring/summer essentials. And todays essential is the white dinner jacket. A true must for the WASP wardrobe, and a staple for all classically dressed men. A white dinner jacket is so refreshing and clean. It envokes a classic but yet laid back image. It also envokes images of James Bond, a cruise, or a mid-summer evening party. I personally own a Brooks Brothers Golden Fleece cream dinner jacket, and I love to add a purple square to add just a subtle hint of color. Red works well with pure white, but I believe that a light purple square looks best against a cream colored jacket. Be sure to wear nice gold links, and a classic watch. It is the small details that add to the jacket's allure!
