Dr. Cifuentes is saying goodbye to his irreplaceable shellac 78s before "they" can get their hands on them.

Yes. The airy, loose-fitting antidote for a tropical climate. Worn not just for everyday, but to terribly serious dinner parties, opera, and on many a presidential balcony.

Bands of pin tucks front and back.
Scalloping on yoke and straight hem
(invariably worn outside).
Dr. Cifuentes would approve, I think.
