Schooooool's out for summer!

Yeah, I know it's not summer. In fact, the first week of February in Central Ohio is about the furthest thing from summer. It's not snowing now, but at any moment we could get a foot of snow.

That's why I decided to buck my usual trend of flannel and oxford cloth in favor of a madras shirt today. I wore it under a sweater and I quite like how it looks. It's fun and bright, on a day when the weather is dreary. It definitely requires and undershirt to work out. This particular shirt breathes so well it feels as if you're not wearing a shirt at all.

It's an unusual shirt, too. Osh Kosh B'Gosh for adults? Made in USA? I checked the RN number and it was made for them by Van Heusen. I can't get a read on its age, but it must be a few years old given that (I think) Van Heusen shipped all their production overseas in the 90s.

I have another madras shirt hanging up in my basement waiting for warmer temperatures and I think it's coming upstairs to mingle with the rest of my winter wardrobe.
