You might have guessed by now that I love clothes. Riding clothes especially. My wallet is less enthusiastic about them. So obviously not everything I wear involves $200 breeches or $150 sweaters, because I am a public employee among other reasons. I find quality, inexpensive things to wear as much as I can, and there has been one shirt that I have more than one of and it’s worth mentioning to anyone who loves color, and plaid, as much as I do.
I get them on Amazon. I have three. And for around $20, I don’t feel all that bad about it, considering how often I wear a plaid shirt (almost daily, to work and/or to ride in). They are soft. They wash well. The arms are just barely long enough for my longish appendages. They are lightweight and thin enough even to wear in early summer in Texas. I typically wear a women’s dress size 4, and get this shirt in a size medium.
If you like a nice plaid shirt, but don’t want to drop $148 on one from Rails, Dickies provides you with an admirably economical option. Perhaps a green-themed plaid for St. Patrick’s Day? (I took these screenshots directly from Amazon. Apologies if this offends anyone’s intellectual property sensibilities or rights. But they are closely representative of the plaids in my closet.)
