Image result for proper cloth

I’m going to try something new today. Swiping my own swipes. I’m taking the lines I wrote for Thompson Sweat Proof T-Shirts and adapting them for Proper Cloth dress shirts. I’m literally taking the exact same list and editing each one, line by line, to see how they’ll work.

Now, Thompson T’s are undershirts. This is a high-end custom dress shirt. Other than putting both over your torso, these two items don’t have much in common. But maybe there’s something usable. And tomorrow I’ll create a separate 100 lines for them and we can compare. Those will be done my normal way.

I have no idea how this will go. But I’m interested to find out…

Here are 101 lines about custom dress shirts:

Overall: Meh. The lines aren’t great. I really liked the Thompson post, but it didn’t carry over well. There are some decent lines here, but in general, they feel forced. Maybe I’m too close to it though?

Lessons: If I ever have to write about shirts, this could be a good starting point. It still needs a crap-ton of editing, but I might be able to pull some themes if I had to. Let’s compare it to tomorrow’s effort.

Time: 20 minutes. Nothing to it.

Tune in tomorrow to see how day 2 goes. Or sign up below to get the recap.
