Ask the MB: Tropical Southeast Asian Attire
Q: I live in a tropical South East Asian country with temperature averaging between 31 to 34C in the day. How would a MB dress here?
--Sebastian


A: Would it be Indonesia by chance? Even if you're only living in the vicinity, rent 1982's The Year of Living Dangerously and then study Mel Gibson's wardrobe. Unbuttoned double cargo pocket shirts (tucked in of course), flat-front khakis, and perfect sleeve-rolling. Accessorize with cigarettes and/or Sigourney Weaver and you're good to go.
