With summer officially getting under way, St. Louis is getting warm and humid. The heat, I'm generally alright with. The humidity on the other hand? I've got some choice words that I could use, but won't.
Last week, I decided it was time to pull the linen bits out of storage. My somewhat obsessive compulsive nature has a hard time with linen because, wrinkles. However, necessity forces flexibility. So, while I haven't and probably will never spend anything even remotely decent on a linen suit simply because they are just not my thing, I do own a couple that come in handy. I found this one at H&M about two years ago and after a couple of edits, have been quite pleased with it. The quality of the linen is also surprising especially after comparing it to the linen separates they now carry. I have also become a fan of the band collar because when it's hot, not having something laying on your neck is actually quite nice.

Keep an eye out for updates from Pitti!
Right now, I'm sitting at an airport waiting to board a flight to Florence, Italy to attend Pitti Uomo 88. It seems almost ironic considering that the blog has been fairly inactive for almost a month. Yet, it's been one of the busiest months working behind the scenes to essentially sort out what direction this blogger thing is headed in. I realize that I blog because I enjoy it, yet my inconsistency at times can be frustrating to followers/readers. I've attempted to keep active through social media as work continues to pull me in an even more demanding direction. Long story short, I'm back and I'm here to stay. If you are reading this, thank you for your loyalty.
