Walt Whitman, a fan of fine corduroy, might have worn these shirts.
In fact, he may have owned one in every color, never wanting to settle in one place or on one feeling for too long.
Consider the fact that you haven’t thought twice about stocking your wardrobe with shirts made of simple cotton in bland, colorless collages of conformity. How many white, cream, tan, or blue shirts do you need in order to feel safe?
There is nothing complicated about corduroy but there is something eye catching about a fine, 12 wale corduroy. You will find endless ways to utilize these shirts—under a blazer or sport coat, with a tie and waistcoat, or all by itself.
Whitman is behind you and most likely wearing the burgundy.
