A Spotlight On: Shirts
Use it as a layer or the crowning item; make a statement or revel in effortless minimalism. Go fitted and buttoned up for that smart, elegant look; or go baggy to channel your inner ‘90s slacker. Essentially, there is a lot you can do with a shirt. It’s an item that has literally done the centuries, while it has blurred the lines between smart and casual, suited to any environment that takes your fancy.
When you think of the shirt, there’s some icons that spring to mind. The crisp white Oxford shirt that normally only survives the summer as it inevitably gets drenched in red wine. Then there’s the autumnal flannel, worn by Welsh textile workers in the seventeenth century, De Niro in The Deer Hunter (1978), and your favourite ‘90s Seattle grunge bands – quite the lineage, right? We are sure that you can guess what comes next – here’s some clues though: Pacino in Scarface (1983), Cage in Raising Arizona (1987), Jim Carrey in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective (1994). You guessed it, the Hawaiian shirt.
One of the most beloved wardrobe staples out there, the humble shirt comes in all shapes and sizes, with every colourway and pattern for your pickings. Whether you want to size up for that signature baggy look, or you want something more streamline and fitted, we have handpicked some of our favourites on site now…
