Greater Than The Sum Of Its Parts
What parts you ask? 1 part perfect summer fabric, 1 part perfect summer pattern and 1 part perfect American shirt maker - that's what. Epaulet just stocked up on Gitman Vintage's awesome short sleeve seersucker gingham button down and for all the perfection at work here it's kind of a steal at $155, but I guess a lot of that depends on what you do for a living. Anyway, what can I say about this shirt that I haven't already? The fabric has been recreated from a 1984 fabric book, it's made in Ashland, PA and the details (chalk buttons, box pleats) are on point like an arrow. I'm always talking about reinterpreting the classics for today, but how great is it when you can just buy those classics straight up? Pretty damn great. I have a feeling my boy KJ might have found his new favorite shirt.
