I bought this fabric a few years ago when rummaging around a fabric store in Honolulu. I am calling it “The Golden Bamboo” shirt. I made it a bit smaller than usual. I think it’s tight/too small, but Someone says it fits better than some of my recent ones.

In Stratford Ontario, there is a closed Chinese restaurant  also named “The Golden Bamboo” .  I first saw “The Golden Bamboo” when I went to the Stratford Festival in 1982.

It remains closed and unaltered after 30 years.

In a world of constant change, it is a perverse comfort to go back year after year to see it still there – and still closed.
