Transatlantic celebrations

Here’s a shirt I made a few weeks ago for a customer in Chicago who wanted a casual, short sleeved, 50s style with this specific collar shape. He chose Liberty’s Olympic paisley ‘Lagos Laurel’ and wanted to mix the blue and red colourways, so I made the undercollar red for added interest and pulled it all together by adding blue cuffs.

I understand he is planning to debut the shirt at 4th July celebrations. I was half way through making it before I realised the red, white and blue significance… it pleases me to think of that paisley crossing cultures, from the thoroughly British celebrations of the 2012 Olympics (spot the laurel wreath worked into the design) to an Independance Day party in Chicago!
