The Long Shirt

There’s tons of fun to be had in playing with proportion and deviating from the conventional silhouette of menswear from time to time—my personal favorite being long shirts under fitted suit jackets. This shirt from Mister Hoolywood by Daisuke Obana has a cutaway front, reminiscent of the tails on a morning coat. It is also made from an odd wool-polyester blend fabric, giving the shirt a bit of extra warmth in the cooler months, and an impeccable drape.

I picked the shirt up, the last one on the rack, at Opening Ceremony a couple of seasons ago. But if you wish to try out this “dress shirt” look, I’d suggest you check out your local East Asian shop for a traditional Indian kurta for a more readily available alternative. In crisp white, it is immaculately YSL-chic, Bollywood star-handsome, and extremely comfortable on warm days. Perhaps if you’re a little bolder and feeling creative, a plaid nightshirt from JCPenney?

    This'll be a great project for me since I always buy large shirts and alter them to save a couple of bucks. A nice twist on a classic piece.
