Savvy stripes: as good at the drafting table as they are for lazy Sundays at the coffeehouse with a favorite dystopian novel. Worked in pieces and seamed, Bradbury is precisely tailored through the shoulders for a neat and comfortable fit. The raglan seams are exposed for a constructed look at the yoke, and a block of the lighter color emphasizes the breadth of the shoulders. We chose a high-contrast color pairing for graphic impact; try a subtle shift between warm and cool neutrals or pair closely related shades for an entirely different feel.
