This Just In: JC Penney’s Tartan Fun Shirt
$20 @ JC Penney’s
The collar was a bit wonky. I had to have my tailor move the buttons. It’s still not the best, but it’ll do. Also the sleeves are attached to the body at an angle. It affects the tightness at the armpits when I move my arms up and down. Not a deal breaker, but interesting pattern choice. Love the tartan. Love the fun. Love the price. No brainer.

This Just In: Polo Ralph Lauren Custom Fit Tartan Patchwork Shirt
$43 @ eBay
I’ve been looking for one of these for a really long time. I really wish there was some black watch in here, but it is still a very lovely shirt. It’s a 15/medium custom fit. I usually wear a small, but this medium fits perfectly.
This Just In: Lands End Wool Tartan Tie Made in the U.S.A.
$7 @ eBay
This is my second favorite tartan after Black Watch. It goes by several other names, but it’s pretty much black watch with a red and yellow windowpane. It’s 3.25” wide. My favorite tie width. Again long-term planning.
This is the cheapest tie, I’ve every gotten off eBay. It’s not $2 thrift, but it’s pretty good for sitting around the house in my pj’s staring at a computer screen.
This Just In: Orvis Tartan Fun Shirt
$50 @ Orvis.com
You may have noticed that I like fun shirts. I’ve been wanting a tartan fun shirt for a while. I missed the J. Press flannel one and got a PRL plaid fun shirt a month back. I saw this one over at Orvis, but was concerned about their sizing. This is a small and it was huge when I first got it. It fit well in the shoulders and the sleeve length was right, but the body, sleeves and neck were too big. I had my tailor work on it and I’m pretty pleased with the results. I’m considering removing the pocket. I think it’s disproportionally big now that I’ve slimmed it down. We’ll see.
