The Easy Shirt

There was just a yard and a half left of this cream and chocolate printed textured silk at the fabric shop, but I knew I had to get it and have my tailor make it into something. I envisioned a short-sleeved shirt in a relaxed silhouette: easy and comfortable, yet elevated by the luxe fabric and the subtle touch of a slightly stiffened collar. This is one of a series of vaguely Dries-inspired shirts I’ve collaborated with my tailor on. Here’s what came out of it:
printed silk shirt, my design
Christmas lunch was at my grandmother’s house, right above her balut factory. I was feeling slightly plumped from all the holiday face-stuffing, and it was just way too early in the day to step out in one of my kooky concoctions, so I deemed it the perfect occasion to don my “easy shirt”.
Number (N)ine sunglasses, shirt of my own design, Cheap Monday trousers, ASOS shoes
My grandfather’s delightfully ostentatious steel and gold and diamond-encrusted Rolex, culled fresh from the safe. I thought my pile of dark metal bracelets (Philip Crangi, Susan Rosen, Number (N)ine) helped tone it down a notch from naff to somewhat ironic.
natural leather woven shoes from ASOS
My go-to shades since summer, these Number (N)ine keyhole sunglasses provide that subtle eccentricity I think every outfit could use a little bit of.

    I think guys are switching back to the tee. You see them everywhere including malls, clubs, and under posh sport coats. Today's man wants an upgraded tshirt which emphasizes both style and comfort. They demand a shirt that looks the part but feels like their favorite shirt from freshman year in the dorms… For an example of what I'm talking about Check out this new ultra contemporary high end clothing line for the bold at the Sex Sells Inc. Clothing Company’s Online Boutique.
