For no discernable reason, I recently developed a mini-obsession with the color green. I picked up some polo shirts, a striped belt from J. Press, and a few other things. Among the purchases was a pair of shorts in mint-green oxford cloth (Polo, natch), which finally brought things to the tipping point and inspired a blog post.
But whether shopping for green oxford clothes or just images on Google, there’s not a lot available (shirt above is by Proper Cloth).
