For my first post, I would like to share this luxurious swatch of fabric. This is Herringbone.

Herringbone describes a wonderful pattern of woven fabric, so called (supposedly) because it ‘resembles the bone structure of a herring fish’. Typically uninteresting when used for woolen outerwear, as is most common, Herringbone is decidedly luxurious when used with high thread count cotton as in a fine dress shirt. In this case, it exudes a subtle yet radiant sheen that evokes an air of sophistication and style. The effect is inarticulable by most, but noticed by all.
