Summer School Supplies: Gitman Violet Chambray


-I posted about this shirt when I first ordered it, but I never gave any commentary once I had it in hand. Based on other chambray shirts I had seen and worn, I expected my first shirt from Gitman to be a bit heavier. In actuality, the shirt is the lightest of any in my closet, and in early March when I bought it, the weather didn't afford me many opportunities to work it into my wardrobe. However, as the mercury has been staying put at around 80 degrees for the past month, this shirt has become my go-to. What you see below is what I've been rocking most days this summer. I don't actually promote doing the half-tuck in most situations, I just wanted to show that the shirt can work both tucked or more casually untucked. I've kept my undershirt rotation tight, switching between light grey and dark grey v-necks, mainly because grey and purple always work well together. Most days my walking commute can get pretty hot, so I prefer to keep it open with a V rather than my usual white Hanes undershirt.

why is the rendering of your images so bad compared to flickr? Looks great there...

Angelo said...

Because Blogger sucks and fucks up images. Do you upload straight into your posts? I embed from Flickr because that actually shows up better than when I use the native upload.

Do you live in Bellingham? I assumed you were in Seattle.

Half tuck is cancer status in this shot. I rarely see this. Keep it up.

I was just flipping thru the archives. Where are these khaki shorts from?

Shorts are just cutoff Gap trousers.
