Holla For The New Collar
Posted on May 29 2015
On casual Fridays-or where's-the-party Saturdays or hangover-brunchin' Sundays-give your regular shirts some time off and button up a looser, more laid-back band-collar shirt instead. (Just not all the way.) Here's how to join the band.
- The band-collar shirt is as easy as it's versatile: like the missing link between a tee and a dress shirt. Which means it's perfect under the hard lines of a military-born M65 jacket, where the band-collar's relaxed style gets lifted into brunch-with-her-parents territory.
- The band-collar is the going-out shirt for guys who have wisely retired the phrase "going-out shirt." Take it for a test run at the bar with your favorite leather moto jacket, then marvel at how much sharper you look than the guys with their cuffs rolled back once and their point collars flapping in the wind.
- Ready for take your Band-collar to Work Day? Layer one over a T-shirt with some pop (stripes work nicely) and leave an extra button or three open. Then toss on a simple suit. It's a move best saved for days when your most important meeting takes place at happy hour.
