Fresh Off The Press - New Carlo Riva Cotton Shirts

I had no idea that a roll of fabric that is wound on a piece of timber is called a 'bolt' but you learn something new every day and occasionally I get an email from the oracle of menswear, Will Boehlke of A Suitable Wardrobe. It was a rejection of an invitation to purchase a length of my Carlo Riva fabric from me. His response was 'that's okay, if I need some, I will just order my own bolt' and then I quizzed him on it and his response sounded like 'Kid, you got a long way to go'. I sure do. Every day I learn something new in this game and the knowledge levels are like layers to an onion. You penetrate one level, then you have a thirst for the next layer and so on.

In the meantime, enjoy what we have put into play with our recent Carlo Riva bolts.

  1. Lovely cotton shirts, i mostly wear such kind of shirts when going to office, the tartan yellow blue and white one is looking cool, just one bad thing you can't wear a tie with it because of the collar.
