I've found a couple of things: I have lightweight cotton, unlined jacket (yes, it seems, the 80s have returned) and some white linen slacks. I picked them up off the bargain rack in a shop in NM. The jacket is the kind you can roll up the sleeves and look cool. Throw on a white or off-white v-necked t-shirt and it's surprisingly cool, yet a little dressy. Also, a friend of mine asked me to do some magic at her party. That day, the air conditioning went out. I threw on a pair of white Polo shorts and a black-and-white patterned linen shirt. The shorts were the kind with all the pockets, so it had places to put everything. I did an evening of strolling magic without breaking a sweat. People liked the magic and no one complained that I didn't "look magic enough." The point is, look good and stylish. I like the idea of throwing on a hat if you want to stand out. And when it doubt consult the pros: http://www.esquire.com/style/mens-summer-fashion-2011#fbIndex1 If you look at the pictures, you'll see all age groups represented and these are clothes made for the summer. BTW, when reading Esquire or GQ, do NOT look at the prices. I am not the kind of guy who can afford these clothes. Instead pay attention to the look and kinds of fabric. You'd be surprised how you can put together a similar look with clothes you can find much more reasonably priced at some of the discount stores (I can find some killer stuff at Burlington Coat Factory or TJ Maxx if I look hard enough). For summer, it's the kinds of fabrics, that matter. Pure cotton, linen, silk. Also, if you live in a city, or now even rural areas, that is fortunate enough to have a family-owned Mexican clothing store nearby, take a look. Clothes there made for tropic weather. You'll find plain cotton shirts, some with some very cool stitched designs. Those will make you stand out, too. Got this tip from a friend of mine who leads a Cajun band and plays a lot outside in the summer. He picked up some great looks at our local mercado. Mostly reasonably priced, too. [/quote]
