When I first saw this shirt this summer, I immediately thought of our state's esteemed governor and his penchant for a good cigar and a nice dress shirt.
Indeed, Arnold Schwarzenegger is a perfect fit for shirtmaker Thomas Pink's "Mogul." I mean, what better place to pack a smoke than in its ingenious breast pocket? It looks like a normal pocket, but, upon closer inspection, we see that it is divided in half. The small section can expand to hold cigars in a variety of sizes - anything from a Grand Corona to a Panatela.
I got these names from the Thomas Pink release, by the way. I wouldn't know which brand a cigar was if it spoke to me.
Anyway, the other pocket can be used to hold a lighter or something called a cutter.
The shirt itself seems right up the guv's fashion alley. It's traditionally formal, made from Egyptian cotton. (That's 140-yarn count to the rest of us.)
The shirtmaker likes to quote Mark Twain in its advertising pitch: "If smoking cigars is not permitted in heaven, I won't go."
If he were still living, Twain could join the governor in his designated smoking area.
The Mogul is a pricey $195 and is available at www.thomaspink.com. The shirt is also available at the Thomas Pink store in Vegas.
