I don't have a white dinner jacket and would love to have/wear one. But I've always thought of a white dinner jacket as something that belongs in some function in the open air, rather than inside a hall. However, this impression could be completely baseless. But then again, doesn't the South have its own rules?

Seriously though, when I said "limp collar", I was thinking of something more flaccid than that. Specifically, collars which are supposed to have stays in...
Yet another tour de force unearthed from the deep repository of SF wisdom. I am for the umpteenth time, humbled.

I thought that would depend on the fabric you choose? I personally have not had problems ironing pure cotton shirts of differing qualities as long as the shirt is damp when I iron it. Your poor wife. You should either learn to iron, or take your laundered shirts to the dry cleaner's to be pressed.

They look sturdy yet comfortable. Does anyone have any thoughts about them? I've been eyeing them too. And the price is lower today than it was yesterday! I might drop by brooks again today to try these on.
