Could you please explain what you mean by "unconstructed jacket"?
A very casual sport jacket with no padding or lining. Think of a cardigan in the shape of a sport jacket, and worn on similar occasions with similar accessories. The link is to an EBay example of an unconstructed jacket: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws....me=WDVW

In a recent thread I've seen the look of a polo shirt tucked into a pair of khakis combined with rubber-soled shoes described as "midwestern," the connotation being unsophisticated, boring, provincial, if not something even more sinister.  This brings up the question: what are the alternatives?  Try as we might to sing praises of classic business attire, the fact remains that for most of us suits/sportcoats and dress shirts with ties are frequently neither appropriate nor desirable.  So come warm weather, what do we wear?  There is still a desire to look tasteful and elegant, but some of us feel either too old, not sufficiently fashion-forward, or too difficult to fit, for the "Banana Republic" look.  This seems to leave few, if any, alternatives to the run-of-the-mill Eddie Bauer/Land's End look of khakis and polo shirts.  So what do you wear in the spring and summer when you need to look casual but still put-together? This is not an idle question; I currently sport the dreaded "midwestern" look in the summer, but would be willing to branch out if I knew what to branch out to.  I'm especially interested in the opinions of those 30-45 years of age. Thanks in advance, Tony
