    I was wondering, where I could find a good summer button up shirt with a printed floral pattern on it in something other than linen and what materials you would recommend. I have heard that seersucker is a good summer material, I have never tried that before.

    I don't know what it is about linen, maybe it is too flimsy or wrinkles to easy, but it just doesn't feel right wearing it.

    Tailor Stitch is funding some popovers right now in a nice medium blue or sage green.

    I doubt that any of the mills are printing seersucker.
    the uneven surface willbe difficult to print on.

    there are lot of brands that have cotton prints.
    liberty of london prints are beautiful.
