Amalfi Linen Blazer
This is what you wore coming back from the gold fields.
Everybody wanted to know how you’d done. Of course they would never ask, and you would never answer. So you came dressed a certain way. That was the answer.
A linen suit is a different message on different days. But it is always in the same accent. (In this case, southern Italian.)
You know how a man, born big—say 231 pounds and 6'6", goes through life fairly calmly—doesn’t need to raise his voice much to get his point across? That’s how linen suits stack up against the other kinds.
Didn’t your father ever tell you about this stuff?
