Wish Blue Were Here

I have a closet full of button downs. Whether they are on the small sized or the larger sized spectrum (because my…mass fluctuates, but isn’t the case for everyone…Bueller…. Bueller…), with stretch or static fabric, there is one this all of my button downs have in common. They are all in a tall length. It is a nonstarter.

Gone are all of the Ralph Lauren Polo slim fit oxfords that I wore throughout undergraduate and grad school. Rolling my sleeves up back then was my jam. Once I found that Gap, Banana Republic, and J.Crew offered extended sizing in tops (the pants were available in a respectable tall inseam [ 36″] as far back as 2008), my Polo oxfords hit eBay and that is how I financed this reinvestment in the better fitting wardrobe.

Next up on my button down shopping list? This.
