The Deep Blue
December 1988 | Volume 39, Issue 8
This crisp and disciplined model of turn-of-the-century elegance is Adm. George Dewey, the hero of Manila Bay. Yachting clothes in all their later adaptations—the universally becoming blue blazer and pale trousers in all their variants—suggest the freedom of the seas rightly subject to poised and purposeful masculine control. Even a rather massive figure is flattered by the clean, cool style.
