We all know that Claire is beautiful, thoughtful, witty, thrifty, a brilliant bargain-hunter, clever, kind, a superb writer, stylish beyond imagination, and the best closet curator this forum has ever known.
Well, she is also beyond generous.
Look what she sent me: Her Brooks Brothers button down!
She said it was a bit short in the body for her and she is favouring silks these days.
It came today, and it's gorgeous! The other nice thing is that it does not duplicate my other non-iron BB button down. My other one is crisp, optic white. This one is softer and a winter white or ivory. Plus, it has French cuffs. The fabric is a very fine tone on tone herringbone pattern.
It is the perfect length for me (two inches shorter than Claire). The sleeves are not even a whole lot too long...the tight cuff makes them blouse a bit, so it works for me.
I think I will get a lot of wear from this shirt, especially in the cooler months.
Thank you, Claire, and thank you, YLF!
P.S. Not styled, just thrown on with what I was wearing.
