What kind of taupe ;)? A darker taupe or a purplish taupe? Mauve Taupe? I know I spoke out against it a few days ago..because of the color, but I think now that it was more my opinion of the gent who was wearing the shirt. The 80’s/90’s were fun, but I don’t think that the style of hair would do this shirt justice whereas a shorter hair-style would..I will trust my instincts, my hair and your word and go with this shirt..
