Pink Bengal Stripes

A Perfect Shirt:  Mercer & Sons Pink Sands Bengal Stripe:


  1. I've said it before and I'll say it again. Mercer and Sons shirts are great. But a couple of whites and a couple of blues are all you need. Maybe one blue and white stripe if you want to get crazy.

  2. Variety is indeed overrated:
    White shirts are all one needs.

  3. How long does it take, typically, before a Mercer order arrives, please? I am eagerly awaiting a pair of shirts ordered at the start of February. Can't go wrong with pink and white stripes by the way.

    Best Regards,


  4. Heinz, the next cutting is in about six to seven weeks.

  5. Cannot go wrong with a proven winner! Thank you!

  6. All Mercer shirts are excellent.

  7. Divine, swoon-worthy! Thank you for the peek!

  8. Variety or not? I vacillate. In my twenties I owned white and a few blue Brooks button downs and did not covet variety. Then a blue candy stripe crept in and then Brooks weren't having. At the same time the blazer was worn more and suiting choices were more limited. Enter Mercer and Bengal stripes, varied candy stripes, and so much more. Now blazer, plain slacks,
    dark club ties, and soon the pink Bengal!

  9. Excellent shirts! I just received some & ordered the pink stripe
