Blue Chambray Shirt

Recently, I felt a sign that blue chambray shirt is personally coming in again.

1

You know, it has been quite unusual and interesting situation going on that whole lot of brand names of Chin strap-equipped blue chambray shirts were suddenly popping up on the market….after 80 years of absence since the mid-1930s.

2

Now, I feel especially fresh when it is mixed in dark-colored mix….

3

This one served well long enough in my living room…

Now it looks ready to go outdoor! (Takeshi)

Still in “Inspiration” mode under show prep…..You know, you sometimes prefer Rolex, Porsche, Land Rover, Leica over “Americana” stuff…being in the mood for some European depth and flavor into your mix…

Memory Grosgrain

Memory Grosgrain or something….that’s the name for this polyester fabric on a header….thought one of those funky Japanese-translated English words.

g%ef%bc%91

Wrinkle? sort of wavy….a great presence.

g%ef%bc%92

…and character, too.  I instantly recall Peter Folk’s raincoat in “Columbo”.

g%ef%bc%93

I remember “this fabric memorize the wrinkles” or something for sales copy for this fabric….that’s not a lie.

Brought mainly smaller stuff from Japan this time….@SUNTRAP

And some other…..
