A quick search revealed 5 cotton jackets..............
like, you will post more than one outfit fit pic in one day? why?
You change into white tie at 6 of course.
I don't actually like wearing cotton jackets or suits. They always feel warmer than they should, and they rumple weirdly. If I want something lightweight & casual-looking, I greatly prefer linen; if I want something lightweight & smarter, I much prefer lightweight wool. So I only have one jacket that might qualify for this contest, which coincidentally enough, I wore today. Technically it's a 50/50 cotton/hemp blend, but as it's the closest to a cotton jacket that I have in my wardrobe, I hope it slides in under the entry criteria:
Love the tie, HF.
HF, that looks magnificent. the hat is an awesome extra touch of summer cool. i think you may be an early front runner here.
No sweat. I'll do it for you, since this draws on lots of Spoo-spiration.

I wore three cotton jackets this week. This one was my favorite.
Very summery look, Chris! Glad to see you posting a fit.
I figured it was time to start doing a bit since I've been building up my wardrobe of late.
