Preston Parker’s mother has invited you to her annual “Linen & Bowtie” party. It’s sure to be a proverbial who’s who of Southern society, or so you’ve been warned.
If convention holds, the men will wear linen suits and loud bowties, ribbing each other over which peacock has the greatest plume (God help the poor soul who wears a clip-on).
The women will fawn over each other’s tasteful choices of linen dress. It’s all a very familiar scene.
You’ve got linen. You loathe convention. You can procure an outrageous bowtie. And even though South Carolina law states you can be fined for keeping your horse in a bathtub, who’s to say you can’t flip the progressive script at Mrs. Parker’s party?
No one. That’s who.
Charleston Blazer (No. 5966). Feels like spring has arrived, although those of you in the northeast may not agree just yet. But in this classic-fit satin-trim blazer, spring will come—unless you’re in Maine. Then you have to wait. Stretch linen and cotton blend (55% linen, 43% cotton, 2% spandex). Dyed-to-match satin trim lapels with notch collar. Front waist-shaping darts and light shoulder pads. The front welt pockets with flaps make life easier. Back is half- lined in shell fabric, while the front and sleeves have a silky stretch lining. Single dyed-to-match shell button at front, with three buttons at the sleeve cuff. Imported.
Spritely and dashing.
