Wardrobe Adjustment

Wardrobe Adjustment

Today is Memorial Day, a special time when this great nation pauses a moment to look for its white shoes and straw hats. This is the official Unofficial Start of Summer, so get your seersucker suits out of storage.

In Baltimore, “Straw Hat Day” was May 15th; farther south, other rules applyBut remind yourself that today is about more than wearing light clothing, burning meat, or buying major appliances. Observe the customary moment of silence at 3:00 PM.
