White Collar Crime
As in the two tone shirt is often overlooked and ignored when it comes to casual sportswear which is a crime as far as I am concerned. Just like how I talked about here, a great way to step up your casual looks is to pair your standard kit (raw denim, chinos, shorts, what have you) with a white collar shirt. I really like the idea of throwing on a shirt like this, even with some neckwear, to wear when going about all you S/S business. Lots of brands are releasing a variety of casual shirts with white collars for the upcoming season and I am totally on board with this and even if you're out of the office there is nothing wrong with tucking in your shirt and throwing on a tie. There is something to say about a guy who even in his time off takes the effort to keep things classy upstairs. Just because you are used to wearing your jeans and sneakers on the weekend doesn't mean you have to exclusively rock white tees. While knotting up on a day off may seem counter intuitive to some, and that is totally understandable, you can still wear a quote unquote dressier sport shirt to differentiate yourself from all the flip flop wearing, Bud Light Lime nursing jerkstores out there. If white collars are a crime, lock me up for 25 to life - actually let me get some community service if that's cool...
