This day ensemble equalizes men and women without surrendering to menswear design. The conical shape of the swing jacket in canvas is definitely womenswear, though its special ingenuity resides in Cashin's eminently practical dog-leash latching, whereas the plaid trousers could easily come from the menswear wardrobe of a misguided golfer.
