Dandy & Rose

Bespoke Western Shirts, Handmade in England

A touch of the meadow

There’s a touch of the English meadow about this shirt in Liberty’s classic floral, ‘Capel’ in the soft green colourway.

It’s a while since I showed the fabric and announced excitedly that it was on its way. Christmas intervened! And then I found I didn’t have enough of these green snaps that match the piping so perfectly, so I had to wait for more to arrive. And on top of that, this style is so blooming difficult to make and I have to keep stopping to mutter and swear, so it takes forever to complete.

Tomorrow the shirt will be winging its way to Chicago, where it has been ordered by a very nice fellow who loves western wear and owns some garments made by Jaime Castenada. I’m quietly hoping he wears his shirt under a Jaime jacket – that will be a Dandy & Rose first!
