This is Tommy Sharp, of the Hudson City Ramblers.
Tommy bought this amazing wool gabardine western shirt from me a couple months back. It was a rather expensive shirt, but I didn't make one penny on it.
I'd bought it for myself nearly 20 years ago, in a vintage clothing store on Bleeker Street named Chameleon, where I also worked for about 30 seconds, mending clothes in the basement/storeroom.
The shirt cost me $90, which trust me, was an extraordinary purchase for me at the time. I paid for it in installments.
Oddly enough, over all these years- I wore it only once--- maybe, MaaaaaaYbe twice,
but in 5 years of having the shop I still haven't been able to bring myself to offer it for sale.
When Tommy came in looking for something special, I dug the shirt out of the back room, not really thinking he'd bite. I was wrong...but, I have no regrets. When I saw him sporting it on his facebook page a couple of weeks later I knew I'd waited for the right moment to part with it.
