Nothing feels as good as natural fibres in a shirt. This 100% cotton summer weight shirting has a nice smooth hand. This is a yarn dyed uneven plaid. It is not printed. The plaid repeats every 2-3/8" inches (5.5 cm). Plaids are very much on trend for button down shirts. Cut cuffs, pockets, yokes, plackets and sleeve plackets on the bias to avoid having to match up the plaid.
