Thoughts on how to wear it?
Good to see someone else on the forum likes it. Richard Chai really doesn't get a lot of mention here much at all (or anywhere else for that matter) for some unknown reason.
As far as how I'm going to wear it, well I don't think I'll be using the 8 buttons and side zip much, so I plan to wear zip up sweaters under it. I have a few that I think will go really well with it. Probably a button up or maybe a V neck under that. Really I'll have to own it for a week or two to know what goes well with it best though.
Also got a few more recent purchases from the Gilt final sale (all RC):
Tailored Drawstring Pants
Silk Cotton Drawstring Pants (I question these, but RC has never made a bad cut of pants, and these were awesome on his runway show, and who the hell else makes slouchy, but tailored, drop crotch khakis?)
Washed Cotton Slouch Pants
Cotton Stripe Collar Shirt
Cotton Batiste Arc Seam Shirt
Got all that for about the retail price of one of his flannel shirts.
