I had a friend once who wore 21-carat gold collar stays. Really.
'Why do you bother?' I asked. 'Nobody will ever notice.'
'You're probably right,' he smiled, 'but I feel better just knowing they're there.'
That was long ago. My views have changed. And when I ran across this pinstripe shirt in Italy, I knew I had to bring it to your attention.
It is, without question, the shirt equivalent of wearing 21-carat gold collar stays.
The pinstripes, you see, are one set of colors on the outside of the fabric (e.g., Red and Blue) and a different set on the inside (Dark Blue and Pale Blue). Not only that, they're slightly raised, three-dimensional, with what looks like obsessively minute ribbing on the edges.
How do they do it? An Italian state secret.
