Happy Belated Memorial Day

For us clothes nuts, Memorial Day -- the unofficial beginning of summer in the northern hemisphere -- means it's time to break out our straw hats, spectator shoes and white bucks, madras, seersucker suits, and lighter-colored cotton and linen suits -- assuming we haven't already, such as at Easter or whenever the weather permits (maybe we'll discuss the legitimacy of the Memorial Day rule another time).

But, while there may be some controversy over whether summer clothes can be worn before Memorial Day, there's certainly no doubt they can be worn after. So wear 'em if you got 'em.
