The origin of gingham discussed


The gingham shirt has become such a common part of the wardrobe vernacular that it would be redundant for me to try to explain its appeal. I actually can't even think back far enough to remember its origin or who "started it". I suspect J.Crew due possibly to the influx of folk bands or maybe its attempt to extend the brand to hermit writers who have had to suffer bear attacks and unruly river currents without their lightweight button-down shirt in Van Buren gingham to protect them. So anyways, I tried to contrast the rural vibe of the gingham shirt with skinny black jeggings and mah shiny purple pumps for day 18 of the 30 for 30 challenge. I am a remixing foool!
