Autumn is creeping in even in Spain although they say we still have a few more sunny spells to come (Hey! I’m playing records with 7″ vinyl this Satruday at a pool party so hopefully summer will stick around a bit longer). I haven’t worn any cotton, undershirt and jacket in a long ass time so when heavy showers appeared, I reached for something comfortable, casual, and that has the right balance between keeping me dry, warm, and looking cool. The Girona25 OCBD (Oxford Cotton Button Down) shirt in the classic plain white is my go-to shirt in these cases. Even though I will most probably see no one today out here in the woods (besides you lot reading), this shirt, a Barracuta G9, heavy weight 15 oz raw selvege denim baggies, and my trusty Botero boxing boot is all I needed. When everything looks kinda plain and standard, it’s the collar roll that makes the difference and this one is outta sight! The collar lining is very fine and detaches after the first wash, so a soft natural roll is all that shines out from the plain white. Sure you have the fine details such as locker loop, dipped back collar with back button, full front and back sewn pleat, mother of pearl buttons and the rougeness of the 140 grm oxford cotton – but its the roll that shouts out ‘hell ya!” and gives the on looker a bad-ass first impression. Made in Barcelona, currently available in a few size (more to come), check it out and get yourself a wardrobe staple. https://www.dnagroove.it/shop/shirts/girona25/

Corduroy lilac semi – bags start this suggestion and will be adding colour to colour for a late 60’s vibe.
