Summer’s Almost Over. Enjoy This Linen Sport Coat While You Still Can.

On Monday, August begins. Wait. What? Is that right? Oh, jeez. How do I let this happen every year? Somebody hold me as I weep silent, empty tears for another summer of my youth passing me by.

OK, thanks. Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s go about making a plan to salvage what’s left of this fleeting warm weather. All set? Here’s what you need to do:

1. Buy this impeccable linen sport coat from Drake’s. It’s unstructured and unlined to keep things light and breezy, with horn buttons, patch pockets and a classic 3/2 roll closure for added steeziness. Also, it was made in Italy, the home of pasta, Ferraris, 8 1/2and Sebastian Giovinco. Good things come from Italy.


2. Wear the living daylights out of said sport coat. Wear it with a shirt and tie, like this handsome chap. Wear it with jeans and a tee. Wear it over a henley for some Ryan Gosling-at-Cannes vibes. Wear it while eating green eggs and ham. We don’t care. Just effing wear it, OK?!

3. Listen to Sum 41’s All Killer, No FillerIt’s probably the best summer album ever recorded. Accept no substitutes.
