Don't Get Around Much Anymore

A customer of mine was recently in the studio and I asked him how his Monti 200 lemon twill shirt was from his last batch of shirts. He said 'you know, I don't wear it much'. I was surprised since he was so adamant about getting it at the time, it seemed to be a concrete decision without any reservation.

The trouble with lemon shirts is that they have been so passé for so long. Along with pink, which used to be much more in mode, the lemon shirt has been having a hard time being showcased recently, overshadowed by baby blues and in some cases light lilacs. So I was really happy when another customer of mine didn't mind if I tweaked their new lemon shirt a little to make the cuff white just to break up the monotony of a solid coloured lemon shirt. The result was visually very pleasing but more importantly, the customer was very happy with the result. I do hope a designer more avant garde than I revisits lemon soon, because when it's done right it has a place, either on a cream suit or with browns, but the right browns of course. Here's hoping lemon and pink have another comeback, they've been on the bench for too long.
