Come on Mr. B. Those trousers are in dire need of either rolling or hemming. Otherwise a great look which I've done similar myself with a Breton shirt.

An indigo dyeing experiment on this shirt. Would maybe want it to be darker (mental note for next time), but also thinking maybe this will fade into the perfect shade after some washes.

Nice! You can always dip it again to darken it.

I think the color looks good though and I agree that it should fade nicely.

Yeah i've contemplated dipping it again. I'll wear it a few times and see how I feel.

What did you use to dye it (I know you said indigo) but is it Rit dye? What color was the shirt before you dyed it? Was it cotton, linen?

 

I have a shirt or two I would like to change and this seems like a nice idea.

 

Thanks and good work.

$8 indigo dyeing kit on Amazon (it's gone up to $10).

My shirt is cotton-linen. I also did a pure-linen shirt with the same results. And a cotton-poly pocket square as well. All three took the dye well. A fun afternoon project. This site has some pics of the process: http://www.heddels.com/2014/04/backyard-guide-indigo-dyeing/

First time poster here.

^ I really like it, but I might not have mixed menswear with casual here. The safari, jeans, boots look great here; however, I think just having a button down collar shirt (no tie) would've finished the look better for me here.

You're right.
I think I should try that next time!
