I went walking the other day,
Everything was going fine,
Saw Synthese was selling this shirt
And then I almost lost my mind
Mama said there'll be days like this,
There'll be days like this Mama said
(Mama said, mama said)

My eyes are wide open
But all that I can see is,
this shirt fitting someone who isn't me
but I don't worry cause

There'll be days like this Mama said

Guys, if you like Ervell, copper oxide, and clothes previously in contact with Synthese's body, boy have I got some great news for you!

I've longed for this shirt since its release for the S/S '10 collection. I missed out on it when it was a Gilt staple, and the few times it's popped up for sale here, it's always cruelly been any size but the one I needed. If you've been here for a while, you've seen me beg Synthese to sell me this very shirt almost any time he's posed a fit with its glorious, Easter-egg-like pattern.

Imagine my elation Monday last when I saw Synthese had finally decided to part ways with it. Despite warning that the shirt fit slim, the measurements looked suitable for my stupid proportions. Today, I learned that I have underestimated the power of my stupid proportions. The shirt that has been a white whale of mine for nearly three years is finally in my possession and the stupid thing is too small!

And tragically, we are not talking about a slimness that would be alleviated by less bread. We're talking high arm holes, a trim chest, and high side vents. The shirt that I have wanted for so long is incompatible with me.

But in wake of this tragedy, might we find a silver lining: Now someone else can enjoy the shirt that I will never, and could never be able to.

The Details

- Club Collar
- Much-desired green oxide treatment
- S2S: ~18.75"
- P2P: ~23"
- Fits slim because of the high arm holes; I cosign Synthese's sentiments that this is best suited for the closet of a US/40.
- $77
- Price does not include actual shipping charge. Buyer will have choice of either First Class or Priority Mail.
- Price is firm. Like the United States, I do not negotiate with copper oxides.
