    If you are a casino host, for summer evening semi-formal, are in a remake of "Love Boat", are a baddie in a James Bond movie.

    LOL. So, summer evening semi-formal then... Always wondered about that.

    Don't forget: if you play for The Hives.
    I like the look. For summer formal, I say "go for it".

    A cream jacket and gray trousers is one of my favorite combinations for summer day wear.

    If you want to be mistaken for the waiter and collect empty champagne flutes on a silver plate.

    Since this cretinous soccer star David Beckham has been sporting the white jacket, distressed denim outfit from Dolce & Gabbana, I have somewhat been put off buying a nice cotton white sportscoat. On a second thought, I don't think it's ever been a good idea.... [​IMG] Luc
