    I'll be attending an evening garden party in New Orleans later this month, and was planning to wear brown and white spectators. I've only worn them in the daytime before, and wondered if there are any rules/practice about this. For context, I expect the guests will be wearing linen, seersucker and the like.

    No thoughts on this weighty issue?

    Summer garden party in New Orleans seems pretty ideal for spectators, particularly if seersucker and linen clothes will be the order of the day. There may be a "rule" about this somewhere, but specs in this environment would hardly be showing up to a black tie event in your pyjamas and slippers.

    I wouldn't, black shoes are great with linen and seersucker anyway.
