All The Way Turned Up
Newgrass posted on the sartorial technique of buttoning your shirt all the way to the top sans neckwear a little while back, but since his blog is on an indefinite hiatus I wanted to take this chance to revisit. This particular move took some warming up to on my end, but when done right I think it is an easy way to take your kit from that of a beginner to a hard nosed veteran. Granted this move is a little too fashion-y for some and that's exactly how I felt when I saw trendy Euro skinny guys dropping their neckties. Now that the buttoned to the top movement is showing up in a much more classic sense (and I don't mean that in an ignorant xenocentric way) my eyes have been opened. A few months ago I would have never imagined a well styled guy rocking this, but now I'm thinking it is a great way to add a little panache to your game. If you don't believe me check out the "all the way turned up" on your friendly neighborhood blogger and last night at the GQ/CFDA Best New Menswear Designers In America showcase. By the way, congratulations to Billy Reid for taking home the win and the spoils.
