Plaid shirt to transition into Winter

Transition from Fall to Winter in this classic plaid collared button front shirt.
The shirt tail hemline is tunic length making it perfect for skinny jeans and leggings.  Preppy style button front and long sleeves make it an easy to wear addition to your wardrobe.  
The 100% Rayon fabric is both comfortable and easy care.




(NOT a new hairstyle..... the wind is blowing!)


The Merona brand classic shirt is well made and has some details that indicate above average construction.

The dress shirt sleeve placket is extra narrow with one button:


The pockets are cut on the bias, are mirrored  and nicely  stitched:

  
There is a nice pleat in the back below the yoke and the yoke is cut on the bias:


The one feature that screams....."This is not Ralph Lauren" are the side seams which are not perfectly matched.





When determining a price point for an article of clothing, the time involved with cutting and construction are taken into account.
Bias cut yoke and pockets take less time and use less fabric.
The "unmatched" side seams indicate less time spent with cutting and sewing.







    I have paired my new shirt with Girlfriend ankle jeans from Chico's

    These sublimely soft jeans with a slight stretching fabric and classic clean fit are my favorite.  Mine are from last year and I can't find them in pink any longer, but here they are in a variety other colors.



    I found similar plaid shirts for you.  Many of them are at a good price.  Notice the matching of plaids and pockets and plackets.  Just click on the shirt:
