White towel

"His army years, his time in the colonial service, his difficulties with women (one in particular), his throat full of unconfessed longings - all have come to rest in a large white porcelain tub and a warm towel waiting, folded beautifully, over a chromium rail."

Carol Shields, Soup du Jour, in Shields, Dressing up for the Carnival, QPD London 2000, p.165

White is still linked with the utmost 'chic' ...

"Sometimes I wear a bow tie, maybe sometimes a straight tie, maybe a pocket shirt, maybe not, but shirts must be white".
