    Any secret to getting the duffel for $59? It’s showing as $78 on the site.

      They usually have 30-50% off sales and codes every weekend on the site.

    Great outfit and love the card case. However, where I am from, starting now, it’s too hot for long sleeves, even rolled up.

    Love the outfit, but over the past couple years the issue of the heat has been rising…no pun intended. Would love a summer casual outfit for the DC area…where it is just WAY too damn hot and humid.

      It’s always hot and humid here, so most of the men have taken to wearing those pastel colored button down shirts made for fishermen with the vents on the back. This is both in the day to day world and AT WORK! Whatever you decide, don’t do that!

    I’ve had problems with these cotton-linen shirts being see-thru, so its either show off a sweet white undershirt, or show some nip. Any suggestions?

      Wear smiley face stickers over your nips. They will be a great conversation starter! Or wear an A-shirt aka “wifebeater”, if the linen shirt isn’t skin tight the undershirt won’t be noticeable and will breathe better in the hot summer months.

    There is a very similar Merona brand shirt at target for $24.99. Here is the link. I picked one up today and it looks great.
