Probably linen/cotton. I want to try chambray, but I would have to convince Geneva to open an account with S&G, and even then, I am not supposed to be getting new shirts.

Yes. You have to ask.

Zendeline, solid, any color. Really wonderful. Incredibly soft, smooth and silky.

Ah gotcha. Is it much softer and thinner than BB oxford cloth? Anna pinched my OCBD, frowned, then shook her hand in the air--as if she had just discovered old chewing gum under a park bench.

Three chambray sounds almost reasonable: cream, blue, pink. Hmm ...

Is S&G hard to get in the states? I assume if everyone can get the squares, the shirtings must be easy, too. Geneva has never, however, shown any eagerness to expand beyond their longtime suppliers. And they really have no interest in special orders for one customer; their volume is just too high to make it worth their while.

I only have swatches, but yes, much finer. But still textured and thicker than broadcloth, end-on-end, etc.

Not as durable I suppose? I like being able to abuse my OCBDs without mercy.

I felt a flutter in my stomach.

Can I get a sycophant flag, please.


You are more Advancedâ„¢ than me, as I tend not to wear mine in fall/winter. (With one exception.)

Again, I don't have any but my guess is, no, not nearly as durable as BB OC.
