You would think the search for the perfect striped shirt would be an easy thing to conquer. I have found the opposite to be true. Every one I've found has ended up failing me in one way or another... too big, too short, shrinks too much, colors bleed, seams twist. It's always something. Lately the name Edith A. Miller keeps popping up on seemingly perfect examples of the elusive striped shirt. I decided to do a little investigating and discovered that the shirts are made right here in the United States... in Pennsylvania... in a mill less than 30 miles from my house! It's a small world, eh? The mill, which has a history dating back more than 100 years, is one of the few remaining historic American knitting mills. I think the fact that these shirts are coming from a small, family run mill makes me even more interested in them.
