    Hi all:

    Good to be back home. Question: I have a fundraiser coming up Saturday May 13 -- this will be a wine and appetizers event held in a 16th-century Spanish fort.

    Dress is casual elegant. I don't own any sport coats that are light weight, if so it would be much easier to pull something together.

    I was thinking along the lines of:

    RLPL French Blue linen shirt, RLPL linen beige FF trousers, Moreschi tan and linen spectators (or Ferragamo chesnut monks).

    or

    Aforementioned shirt, cream wool gabardine Brooks Bros. FF trousers, spectators (or Ferragamo chesnut monks)

    I could just go with a navy Chan 2-button suit and a bright colored shirt underneath and no tie. But it is a bit heavy of a suit for a may night in the tropics.

    Any ideas?

    How hot will it be? Does this fort have air conditioning?

    How can you live in PR and not have all sorts of suits/jackets of linen and fresco? Just wondering.

    Easy. I had plenty, then discovered this damn forum and realized they were all crap and threw them out [​IMG]

    As for the AC, I don't think Spaniards started putting AC in their forts until the 17th century.
