Indigo Summer Plaid Shirt
Any Given Sunday.
Set back against a hill at the convergence of three dirt roads near Gravel Switch, Kentucky, you'll find Penn’s Store, the oldest country store in America continuously owned and operated by the same family. Since 1850, six generations of the Gabriel Jackson Penn family have kept the place going.
Show up on a Sunday afternoon with your instrument—guitar, fiddle, acoustic bass, and banjo are all regulars—and sit in with an array of musicians on the porch to play good music. Songs you know, some you won’t. Rock standards, folk songs, bluegrass.
Back home, the market’s down or up. The Wagoneer needs new tires. Construction’s all but halted on the lake house.
None of that matters out here.
A plaintive song floats up into the Kentucky gloaming. You close your eyes, keep on playing.
You could be anywhere, but this feels exactly right.
Indigo Summer Plaid Shirt (No. 6638) in true indigo yarn-dyed plaid. You’ll find that this plaid changes with wear and wash. Becomes more interesting. Two chest patch pockets with button and pen pocket. Double-needle stitching. Shell buttons. Bound cuff placket. Washed for a remarkably soft hand but without the brushed feel of fall-weight flannels. Imported.
*Model is 6' 1" and is wearing a size medium shirt.
