There has been much buzz about Colette's new pattern for men-- the Negroni. I picked one up at the 20% off sale at the store (now through January 16th) along with some brown gingham shirting. I'm planning a short sleeve version (to start).
Could I suggest some other options, if you're thinking about it? I think it would work great in some of the shot cottons. I realize I keep bringing them up, but I'm all right with that. I also picked out this pile of other apparel weight cottons (above). They are from various manufacturers and as usual, I'm a sucker for gingham and plaids.
These three cotton shirting bolts are all brand new from Andover. If you don't see them right away, make sure and ask. I really like that middle one-- tiny black skeleton keys on white. Of course, it's still cold here and will be for quite some time. We have a nice selection of wool and flannel for a sturdier, long-sleeved version fit for the weather.
