Ahhhh. . . Nothing quite like the feel of a freshly ironed Madras shirt in the summer. Olive green chino shorts with green surcingle belt and the ubiquitous leather dock-sider shoes on the bottom.
It is so easy to look a bit better and yet appease the almighty gods of comfort with summer weight Madras, poplin, or seersucker shirts and a pair of chino shorts. You can wear this stuff to mow the grass at home, drink a glass of midday iced tea on the rear patio or back porch, read a book in the hammock, walk to the mailbox, or hop in the car and make a quick run to the super market for those forgotten hamburger buns. All without embarrassing yourself with a sloppy, rumpled and/or/probably stained appearance. Your spouse or partner will appreciate the small effort you make to look better than the mean even if he or she says nothing. These things do not go unnoticed. Trust me.
