Hugh mentioned that his friends pointed out that his t shirts are either stripes, or a funny graphic. After shopping for male t-shirt fabric...well, there's not much out there. I did find this tri-shade ribbed striped knit that I thought suited him. Used the same Melly Sews free man's t-shirt pattern though I was concerned the rib knit might make it too stretchy. It does seem to be a looser fit than his other blue striped shirt, but he says it's fine.
Can you believe how much he's changed, from his first blog appearance?
The even funnier part of this shirt is that a few days before we left for a week's extended family vacation at a cottage (where this picture was taken), I realized who already had a blue tri-coloured ribbed shirt. It had been bugging me since I bought the fabric. His grandmother!! Her's is a finer rib and a much slimmer silhouette (and RTW)...we went over to menu plan and she was wearing it. I was hoping she would bring the shirt and I could get a picture of the two of them together!
