Villa d'Este.

In 1550, Cardinal Ippolito d’Este spent a fortune creating a folie de grandeur (frescoed ceilings, brilliant mosaics, endless rooms, and a spectacular water garden).

Recently, I read about a man who also owns an estate, a sort of American Villa d’Este. He works cheek to jowl with his Portuguese gardener, planting seeds, telling jokes in Portuguese.

I saw him once at the Guggenheim in New York, wearing a dense, Japanese block print shirt like his one, and jeans. Nothing fancy.

What’s intriguing is that people walking by still exchanged whispers, still knew he was somebody; he still looked like he belonged on an estate somewhere, somehow.

It probably wouldn’t look bad on you, either. No estate required.

Villa Shirt (No. 3640). Daringly, deliberately simply, suggests you’re sufficiently successful that you needn’t bother twisting yourself in knots trying to impress anybody. I had this classic made in India with 100% light soft cotton fabric. Seven buttons down center front and one on collar stand. Imported.

Men’s sizes: S, M, L, XL, XXL.

Favorite shirt
I got the floral for my 5'8 husband in a size medium. Classy pattern and colors.. Mother of pearl buttons. He put it right on. Perfect fit.

My Husband Looks Great In This Shirt!
And I absolutely *love* the lightweight fabric... it drapes beautifully! For the informed - it does run long, so tucking in is probably the best answer for the shorter waisted-types. Well done, JP!

Admired in Hawaii
I bought this shirt in the Cloud pattern as a birthday gift for my husband. He took it to Hawaii and wore it when he had to talk to the Car Rental Man. You know you have a fabulous shirt when a guy in Hawaii admires a shirt and asks another man where he got it. Unfortunately, my husband didn't know from where I purchased it. I need to email the Car Rental Man the information. The shirt is as light as a cloud, well made and washes beautiful (I put it on the Solar-Powered Clothes Dryer). It doesn't get wrinkle-y.'t It is casual but dressy at the same time ideal for the workplace during the hot summer, but perfect for vacations and everything in between.

Great shirt
My husband, who is extremely picky, loved this shirt. It is made from the highest quality materials and fits a full-figure guy extremely well. The various patterns are creative and lots of fun. I plan to order him more.
