Shop the post: double shirts in the wild

Popeye City Boy Style

Now the sweaters are off, it’s time to think about shirts. Why wear one when you can wear two (or three)? A small button-down under a bigger one worn undone. Two identical, worn unbuttoned over a tee. Two different styles, or the same style with contrasting stripes.

Take some inspo from these examples in the wild – I will…

This oversize look (top) spoke to me after Lin (aka Out of the Bag) wrote about City Boy Style. (Now where to find the XXXL chinos for my 5’2” frame?)

Another oversize look (below). Just starch and iron your baggy shirts if you want to look more polished.

Two identical medium-weight, just-oversize-enough shirts (below). Look for thick cotton with a box pleat at the back for extra room. Drake’s men’s Oxford cotton shirts* are a good shout. I also love the pyjama stripes at J.Crew* (whose size range includes petites).

Feeling extra? Auraluee SS24 showed not two but three layered shirts.

If you need pointers for shirt shopping, start with Polo Ralph Lauren* (vintage if you can!), J. Crew*, Officine Générale, Studio Nicholson and With Nothing Underneath.

Hed Mayner SS23

Hed Mayner SS23

I’m not quite sure how Hed Mayner escaped my notice until now, but here we are. Satisfying my love for all things utility-luxe, oversized and rough-around-the-edges, his SS23 collection is an excellent intro to his quiet, self-sufficient world.

Extreme sloping shoulders are something of a signature, seen here in pinstripe tailoring and 80s-Stone-Island-meets-90s-Yohji outerwear, as are repurposed fabrics – e.g., broderie anglaise bedlinens starched and refashioned into roomy tunics and dresses. (more…)
