That’s a paisley, not an emblematic. Great shirt. This is the next step after the madras craze dies down.  Your move, Gant/Gitman


This early 1960s McGregor 765 emblematic button down just arrived from the USA.

Haha, you’re absolutely right Z. I learned that term ‘emblamatic’ from you. Bad use of keywords on my part. It’s not a straightforward paisley though, it’s like a block print equivalent of those patch madras shirts. You can see one of the blocks being blue gray here. The overall effect is sort of deep burgundy and dark green. Shame there’s no placket though. I find that the ‘fashion’ element of the Ivy boom often eliminated details such as flat felled armscye seams.
