Three patterns, three thrifted shirts

Three paterns three shirts 01


What attracted me most to these shirts were the fabrics and patterns, each with its own unique character.

I don't think I've seen houndstooth this creased and crinkled.

I actually just noticed the frayed collar when I got home. Not so bad, I say. Not only is it on-trend, it seems perfectly natural that the fabric would end in loose thread.

Do you see fishes? Slivers of the moon on water? Like the houndstooth shirt above, this has light enough fabric for the hotter summer weather. Both flow and swim with the breeze.

This last one is not that interesting, and a bit structured. Would require a wide tie/tie knot.

But I like the dizzying checkered pattern, and the french cuffs. Though I've yet to find an acceptable pair, ahem.

The three stooges, laid down like True Grit corpses, ready for a long soak.
