Heavy Tweed Jacket is one of my favorite blogs, he focuses on Trad - Classic Traditional American clothing, but curiously is a resident of Japan. I suppose that is not all that curious, considering how many great trad pieces that I list on eBay end up being shipped to Japan!
Recently he posted an incredible article on the various striped shirts that are available. I have to admit, this helped clarify the difference between some terms such as "pinstripe" "candy stripe" and "university stripe" although if there is one thing that this article taught me it is that we need not follow a prescription with labeling the type of stripes on these shirts.
