“Above everything, remember that we should dress to live and not live to dress. If you go riding on a wet day, you will (you should) end up spattered with mud. If you take your children on a summer picnic, you might do well to start out in a navy blue reefer jacket, white flannel trousers and co-respondent shoes – but it is a testament to a very fine day indeed if you end up with ice cream smeared over the knees of your trousers; the dog’s footprints on the white buckskin of your shoes; your wife’s lipstick on your face and a few strands of burnished gold from your daughter’s head on your shoulder as you carry her, flushed, sun-kissed and sleepy, homeward bound.”
