Finally getting around to reading the new Lee Marvin book, Point Blank. Hooked within the first few pages...fantastic.

Just wanting some Ideas for Modish Summer Clothes as its far to warm for parkas and blazers, any Ideas? 8)

What did you have in mind, something casual or something a little more formal than shorts? Living where I do,shorts are almost indispensable but I try to reserve them for around the house. I am very curious to see if this thread gets continued as it seems like there is a lot of room for development here.

Were you looking for just a gasket set or a gasket with floats, needles, etc? Also, did were you looking to buy locally or online?

I think I also applied some mink oil or saddle soap to mine as well during the break in period...just to help soften them up. Good luck with yours!

They might fit a little tight to start, but keep in mind they will stretch.....when I bought my first pair they were more stiff than snug, but it was summer and I would just go for evening walks in the neighborhood in them and they stretched out nicely.

Well, since the jacket is a dark blue with a large light blue and pumpkin check, I may just try to find a few linens in one of those colors...the only reason I avoided silk is that the overall look would be les formal and I thought silk would be out of place....thanks for the comments everyone, I appreciate the advise.

Popping this question for debate, when wearing a white cotton shirt with a dark linen coat, is it more advisable to wear a white cotton pocket square to mimic the shirt,  or a white linen square to go more with the jacket? Scenario would be a warm day, outsite, and with no tie.

I know I have the photo on my pc at home, but I recall a picture of Frank Sinatra at the horse track with Mia Farrow, and he was sporting a navy suit, rep tie, and what looked to be a yellow tattersaw vest....looked very sharp....
