BASIC MATTER 16: BESPOKE SHIRTS

I have never imagined myself working lazily on a Wednesday at a seaside café down south tucked in one corner enjoying the view of the pink sand of Sta. Cruz across playing footsies with myself as I write this – luxury has always been my greatest enemy.

Two weeks and 15 yards later, I finally got the dress shirts I had my tailor make from the sketches that I have been working on. A couple of plaid, gingham and tartan with contrasting club collars and plain ones in country club colors like walking down shaded streets in Nantucket. I’m happy with the results.

He’s been my tailor for 11 years now. 5 bespoke dress shirts only cost me USD 30.00

You must be talking about the luxury of time being an enemy. But the luxury of a trusted tailor--that's a friend indeed! Love the shirts!
