There Are Few Better Staples Than A Baby Blue Twill Shirt

Of all the shirting fabrics I run my hands through there are few that compete against one particular baby blue twill I get from Canclini in Italy. Time and time again this particular cloth has stood the test of wearability and durability both for myself and my customers to the point that I always recommend it as the first shirt to make after the staple white has been made. It is the second most needed shirt in a man's wardrobe because it offers the greatest utility and versatility as a shirt both in business and in casual wear. It can be worn with jeans, it can be worn with trousers, it can be worn with a suit, it can be worn with shorts and it can be worn with just about any combination you throw at it. Think of summer time and a bright green field of grass and you are wearing white jeans and a mocha brown pair of chelsea boots. What shirt? The baby blue twill of course. Think of a bone coloured suit and a day at the races. What colour shirt? The baby blue twill of course. Think of the important meeting in the city and you are wearing your most powerful navy suit with a solid coloured tie. What shirt? The baby blue twill of course.

When you have had enough of your ginghams, your spots, your laser prints, your denim, your coupes and your woven jacquard designs, it's always nice to come home to the simple things in life and nothing quite does it for me that this said shirt. Pictured below with our "Trust" bow tie.

To order your own shirts:

A light blue baby twill, one of the most versatile shirting fabrics and to be considered as an absolute staple in any man's wardrobe.
