I Love a Man in Gingham

Indochino - Urban Cowboy Red Gingham
The other day during my ride home on the subway, I took immediate notice of a strapping, handsome business man. While this generally happens often in any major thriving metropolis, certain special details make a man stand out even more...and in a good way. The guy in question was dressed to the nines. Dark business suit in a dashing charcoal grey shade, pressed and fitted to perfection. His grooming was right on par too. His shirt stood right out with something I had never seen before paired with a suit. Under that suit was the most sexy red gingham dress shirt I believe I've ever seen. Perhaps the shirt wouldn't make quite an impact all on it's lonesome, but when paired with the rest of the package, it completely made the look. Efforts to avert my eyes were useless; I stared like an animal caught in headlights.

Since then I have taken more time to pay attention to what men around me are wearing. I always feel like winking with a little smile at the ones who put an effort in. An effort doesn't have to mean going overboard to be labelled as "metro", but just enough to show that they care about their appearance.

Also I find myself on the hunt for more men's dress gingham shirts. Who knew they could be such a turn on? It's like bow-ties on a dress shirt for me now...I just go crazy!


  1. Hello,
    I visited your blog today. I love fashion and everything about it too - the jewelry, the clothes, the shoes. You have such lovely pictures. Me and my daughters just started a new blog, and we would love it if you could visit us and follow. Our blog is about the beauty in life. My girls love to travel and they love fashion like you. I would enjoy coming back to visit with you and seeing all your unique fashion ideas. Hope to hear from you, and have a sweet day. I really liked the Adore Cherie. We recently did a post about "Signs" and one of the signs that we had was Ma Sherie Amore.
