Review: J.Crew Gingham Utility Shirt

I’ve had J.Crew’s latest utility shirt for about two weeks now and I’m pretty happy with the purchase so far.

J.Crew just put up these great looking sun faded oxford shirts on their website and are available in an assortment of pastel colors.

The more interesting item that showed up is a serious leather bag from a New York based company called Wexler & Co. who have a very Filson-like motto: “the best is good enough.” If I ever need to retire [...]
