I ordered two and hoping they arrive before the promotion ends, so...
I've been thinking about buying a gingham shirt and have some questions about them. I only found questions about tie matches when I did a search, but I'm looking for some other information. Are they only spring/summer? Are they beter suited for dress or casual? If I'm branching out from solids, is gingham one of the first candidates; or are there other patterns that should come before them? If so, what are those patterns?

What is needed to get the corporate discount?

But further on, it begins to sound more factual and legitimate. It states that the islands are along the South Carolina and Georgia coasts,...
Can't believe they are that cheap. I paid that much for an unrestored pair. The restoration costs $145.
As a follow-up to the recent cordovan thread, how much of Sea Island Cotton is legend versus reality? Has it become just a marketing term? Is it worth the extra cost? If there's an advantage, is it comfort, durability, or appearance? Is it better suited for one class of garments such as shirts, sweathers, or socks; or are its advantages, if any, across the board? Does the quality of SIC vary from vendor to vendor, or is pretty consistent?
