Double-Breasted Linen Blazer
Ice-Cream Suit for Women
The linen ice-cream suit.
Mark Twain made it famous.
Its annual emergence from the American closet has been a welcome event for 150 summers, at least.
The reason it is called an ice-cream suit, of course, is because it is cool, like a refreshing dish of ice cream on a hot day, and invariably vanilla, which is the nation’s favorite ice cream flavor.*
Can you think of a single good reason why the innumerable benefits of wearing an ice-cream suit should be restricted to one-half of the species (i.e., the male half)?
Cool, casual, confident, possibly cocky Ice-Cream Suit for Women, a 1920s men’s suit in substantial linen with a nip here, extra flare there, front buttons moved to the appropriate side.
