Striped Beach Pullover

Could not believe my luck when I cam e across this 100% cotton in 2tone grey stripes. First off, its got a stunning look with so many possibilities, but then the hand of this fabric is so soft, considering how substantial the weave is.

For over a year I have been looking for something suitable for a follow up on my hemp sailor shirts. So finally.

I only made a tiny run of Small, Medium, and Large, so if you snooze, you will be left with the blues.

Only at WalkershawMan for $160

The B Plaid Short Sleeve Classic

If only you could reach through your screen and feel how soft and fine this fabric is. It really is “de kind”, as we use to say long ago about something totally unrelated. I love this plaid, and some how the combination of this fabric, and my current short sleeve classic button down, makes me think of Paul Weller while he was in The Jam, during the AllModCons era. A bit of Brit Mod, rather than a straight American 1961 country squire.

I am letting these go at a very good price, due to a small lack of perfection in pattern match. So $65 , and no questions asked, and this could be yours in XS through XL.

Diamonds and ?

Continuing to bring forth my spring line, I have just gotten these super soft and cuddly weekend short sleeves from the sewing genies.  The pattern is almost a gingham design, but some how the diamond diagonals makes it almost a plaid.  Whats in a name.  This shirt by any name would look as sweet.

The fabric came from a street sale, where I managed to snag just enough for a size run.  Having no idea where it might have been, and with whom, I actually washed and dried all the yardage to good effect, as it is so soft to the touch.

In Small through XXL for only $89.

Linen Beach Shirt

Very summery today in San Francisco, so how timely to be putting these luxurious linen weekend shirts out on the rack.  I loved this fabric when I found it at a fabric show, but even then, I did not realize how this super fat fiber would shape up into such extraordinary summer wear.  Surely a staple in and out of the closet for whom ever snags these 5 limited run shirts.
In S-XXL for just $104.

The return of the reversible french cuff

Just put these out on my rack.  When I was loading them into my spreadsheet, I happened to notice I put out my very first run of reversible french cuff shirts on March 1st 2013, almost exactly a year ago.  Those had a white contrast, and I think this current grey a far better choice.  I also switched the collar stand from front to back, as you can see in the collar detail photo.  I love that little bit of grey popping out from beneath the collar.

In a very fine quality cotton shirting, in XS through XL for the modest sun of $150.

Plaid in Blue leads off Spring 2014

Spring is coming. Do not doubt it for a second. Ah spring, makes even old goats like me kick out the slats in the fence, to go off in search of  fun and frolic, I chose this very mixed blue plaid.  It’s open blue skies and warm days under the sun.  Short sleeves will be just the thing for everyone but the french, who think it to plebeian to show off ones  arms above the wrists (or so I am told by my Parisian friends).
In a lightweight cotton for the very reasonable price of $89.

I overheard a fellow and his girlfriend outside my store today.  She pointed out this gorgeous shirt in my window (for a better view see the post below).  She said “Honey, do you like that shirt”.  Mr long haired, scraggly bearded, teenage boy clothes wearing 28 year old replied.  “sure”.  Cute modern girlfriend  asked “would you wear it”.  to which Mr Schlub snorted “no way”.
I was not offended.  I could see he was a lout with all the taste of plain white rice.  But it did get me thinking about why so many men in San Francisco dress so colorlessly.   IMHO, this fellow associated this handsome floral classic button down shirt with femininity.  He was so afraid of appearing less than action movie manly, that he needed to hide behind a mass culture facade of lumpen proletarian style, despite his likely 6 figure paycheck.
So boys, you will look much cooler playing with your toys dressed in WalkershawMan floral finery.

Positively Floral FUN

As I continue to roll out my fabric finds from December’s fabric show, I am happy to bring you this fantastic brown and reddish floral classic with brown and greenish contrasts.  Up next will be the same shirt reversed, with reddish contrast on a green shirt.  But nothing christmasy about it.

I especially dig the red vintage buttons, which just give the whole thing  a bigger POP. As if this fabric needed any help.  But if you think this is too loud, then get back in your grave grandpa, as this is the bee’s knees.

In XS-XL for a very reasonable $150.

Handsome Classic Button Down Stripes

Finally, the first offering made from the bolts of fabric I  snagged at a fabric show in early December .  I chose this Grey Black and lavender striped quality cotton shirting to head up the parade, as it is more in the current season.  Plus it’s so handsome.

The contrast are hidden, but it has black inner yoke, cuffs, collar, and collar stand.  While the pattern is pronounced, the palette is reserved enough that it doesn’t shout, but does speak with an authoritative voice.  Saying “I look good”.

In XS-XL for a mere $150.
