Its been a scorcher in New York this week and the first of the custom summer clothes have started to come through and be delivered. From the shirtmaker in Manchester I got these shirts, made up from Loro Piana cotton and linen goods. The cotton gives the linen a softer handle and negates the creasing present in regular linen. The colors and prints on these shirts are very clear and vivid, paired with slim fit cotton trousers they are impressive enough to be worn with or without a suit or sport coat.
