Blue Chambray Shirt

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

1

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

2

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

This one served well long enough in my living room…

Now it looks ready to go outdoor! (Takeshi)

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…..

For those restless chopsticks…

merit of DV’s ~ OYJ Pot Party ’16FW

I wore my Post 41-DV most… on my last trip to Japan.

The timing was sudden changes of weather….from warm daytime to chilly nights….sometime in drastic.

dv1

My Post 41-DV in Thinsulate quilted nylon taffeta.  “DV” means “sans collar” in Post O’Alls dictionary.

The result is…feel breeze around your neck,  yet with assurance for colder air…a greater versatility within.

dv2

In warmer days….with T’s.

dv3

When slight worry for temp. drops….get some scarf around your neck.

dv4

More worry?  Wear E-Z CRUZ Vest underneath for a relief.

dv5

ARMY shirt does it, too….

dv6

Worry ? …swap it for woolen stuff.

dv7

Feeling like a change?  Wear it over Sweetbear.

dv8

Got real freeze?  Then you need a chemical power from Montbell or somebody’s with whatever-loft stuffed in…

(Takeshi)

P.S.

I managed to make OYJ (= oyaji = dirty old man in Japanese) Pot Party…on the night coming back to NY.

dvps1

By the time I got there…pot was over.

dvps2

Then…game time!
