It Won’t Make MY Brown Eyes Blue


I’m not a fan of the French Blue shirt. That said,  a clean shirt is a clean shirt. I haven’t gotten to the dry cleaners in a while.

I pair blue and brown quite often and with the weather continuing  fall-like and rainy, well, it just seemed natural to go a little darker. As it is Friday, I am wearing a knit striped tie (A Suitable Wardrobe, and very versatile!)  What does tickle my fancy is that the cooler temperatures make wearing lightweight tweeds and flannels very comfortable.

  1. Hello Chris,
    Surprised to hear you don’t like French Blue shirts. Aside from a white shirt specifically with French cuffs, French blue is my favorite dress shirt color when wearing a tie. What don’t you like?

  2. Sybarite. I like to shave. It’s relaxing. Mrs. E. doesn’t miss it a bit. The kids did.

    Robert, I’m not sure. Perhaps with my coloring, I can look a little too 1930s gangster when I wear one. Darker shirts just aren’t my thing. I far prefer ice blue.
