I like 'em. I'm wearing one right now. In solid black, actually, with white double cuffs as well. But it's untucked, with a pair of boot-cut jeans. I got it from a store oriented towards my age group (16-22), so I guess they're (momentarily) hip again.
Before my fiance and I OD on coverage of American terrorism and go to bed, I wanted to shout out here. I thought of your post yesterday, when she convinced me to buy my first contrasting white collar/cuffs shirt at a vintage store. It's a French cuffed Turnbull & Asser with blue, red, and white stripes, the red ones being less numerous but wider. It's actually my first T&A: I've always thought of them as "my father's shirt", mostly because the vast majority of his shirting is bespoke T&A. (No contrasting cuffs/collars in his wardrobe, though.) Her epiphany was to get one that's a little bit "too small" (my normal size is EU41L/US16-35, this shirt is a 15.5L) so that it's fitted in the body, and pair it with distressed jeans (Energie New Morrisons) and loafers (caramel suede Guccis). I can't close the collar comfortably, but it looks great with the top two unbuttoned, untucked, cuffs open or fastened with knots. And you know what? She was right, as usual. There's a reason she's an artist and I'm a writer. It's a great combination. Very different from anything I'd assemble if left to my own devices, but outstanding. (And she's not watching me write this post.
) Peace, JG
