Why did you have to throw pool-worthy shirts into the mix??

May 24, 2019,13:23 PM

Like watches, I have too many of them!

It was good to get them out of the Hawaiian Shirt closet for some fresh air

I guess even specializing in purist details like only cotton fabrics, only made in Hawaii -- doesn't really narrow the field enough

I give up. Let's stick with this morning's Reyn Spooner shirt!

NOW I can head to the pool!
