Benetti Purple-Blue Blend

Here's a vivid shirt in shades of purple and blue with a pattern like dewdrops on blue grass. I bought it in Aachen in 2001. I can't remember where, other than that it was in a sale in a shop in a side street off one of the long main shopping streets. There were several hung together on a rack, and I should have bought a spare. But this one has survived very well.

That these lovely shirts were in a sale suggests chromophobia amongst the Aachener and Aachenerinnen. Chromophobia now also afflicts Benetti. There is still a company of this name — albeit with a different design of label — but its shirts are bland.
