In full summer mode here at Classic Style, so that means various Madras, twill, seersucker, or pique knit tops and various shades of chino shorts (I like an inseam of between 6" to 9") with a ribbon belt of some kind. Here is today's example thereof as I see to a few small things outside before the really hot weather arrives.
A nice feature of life in Michigan is that it never stays that hot for that long before a cooler front moves out of Canada and across The Great Lakes to our west and northwest. As someone told us the first year were were here, "The summers are actually very pleasant."
But the main point of today's post is neither as a promotion of Michigan, nor the new mulch underfoot. Rather, it is to illustrate one more time that even the performance of domestic chores does not mean we have to appear looking like a methamphetamine addict, or the most down and out street person.
Nope. Some faded old shorts and a polo shirt, as long as they are clean and free of rips, will do the trick. And as I always advise, you can also dash easily up the road to the supermarket for another gallon of milk and a loaf of cinnamon raisin bread, or answer the front door without embarrassing yourself.
