verdict: the patchwork shirt

valet’s ‘outlook’ column this morning is on patchwork shirts (left gant right mcnairy).  mark mcnairy calls it a ‘fun shirt’.  i call it a mess.  i’m not saying you shouldn’t buy one if it fits your style, but i don’t like them.  i remember seeing these as a kid.  i actually think my grandparents bought me one for christmas.  it reminded me of fruit stripes gum (if you remember that).  i realize they’re “in” this spring/summer since everyone from gitman bros. vintage to j. press is making a version, but i just don’t dig it.

  1. Almost picked one of these (by Black Fleece) up this weekend. I have to admit, your opinion did come to mind and it didn’t come home with me… Jury’s still out!

    Excellent decision. You can do so much better. I am a fan of your new shades!
