School Supplies: Gitman Violet Chambray

-Everyone has been tripping over red chambray this year, but I prefer this violet version from Gitman Vintage. You probably know that I'm a button-down collar enthusiast, so that detail really drew me to this shirt versus many of the other quality chambray pieces out there. This shirt has been getting a lot of play in the blogosphere recently, and normally I wouldn't post about an item that others had already. But I'm posting this because I pulled the trigger and snagged this in small from Blackbird. I'll update with how it fits/feels/looks in person when it gets here.
-I know I've been posting stuff from Blackbird a lot lately, and if you're a long time reader, you know I've been critical of them in the past. For the record, I still think they have a lot of wack buying (Odyn Vovk, Julius, etc.) that sort of confuses me about who they imagine their customers to be. That being said, the Seattle shop is still, along with Winn Perry, one of the best stockists of dope brands on the West Coast.
