Good day to you all. Most of you that know me will recognise that I have a certain propensity to formality in my attire. With that in mind I want to talk a bit about things I have seen and items that I want. This will be followed up later in the year by a second set of posts talking about what items I have acquired and adding any further inspirations I have found.
Getting stuck straight in, the first thing I really want this year is based on something I have seen dart in and out the edges of shirt design for a few years. Contrast collar shirts are simply shirts that have a colour or pattern on the body and sleeve while retaining white on the collar. Great examples can be found in Charlie Wilson’s War, which can be found [HERE] on Imdb, worn by Tom Hanks.Also, older examples include Kevin Stewart, the fashion director for ESPN. He has been rocking a beard for years and has even got himself a meme, “Professor Badass” described [HERE]. Gordon Gekko portrayed by Michael Douglass in Wall Street, Imdb found [HERE] and also both DiCaprio and McConaughey in The Wolf of Wall Street, Imdb found [HERE]. Now in the market they come in a variety of styles ranging from garish to sublime. Below are my picks. Click on each of the pictures to be taken to the respective store. So there we have it, my first style pick for 2014 is the contrast collar shirt. I have left out dozens of examples so please go look for yourself, most good shirt-makers usually carry one or two styles.
