Very nice. I have a very similar shirt, although the collar and cuffs are not white, and it has a slightly more purple hue. I have a very difficult time pairing it with anything and rarely wear it. This looks from you is a good example of how to wear it.Some eight days ago, my normal morning exercise routine was disrupted by the breaking of one of the pedals of my stationary bike (yes, I know, a first-world problem). Awaiting a suitable replacement set of pedals, for morning aerobic stimulation, I have been walking the streets of Manhattan, which has up until recently, been an interesting study in urban planning.
Today, however, it was a depressing sight. I took one of my more usual routes, northwards from Murray Hill up either Fifth or Madison Avenues to the Upper East Side. What I saw was a growing sea of plywood covers for plate glass windows, either as proactive protection, or as reaction to having been looted. I can understand righteous anger in the face of injustice, but using that as an excuse to loot Chanel discredits the just cause of the anger, and plays into the hate of those who hate and would discredit you.
End of lecture.
With my wardrobe, I try to make a conscious effort to cycle through everything that I own - certainly my shirt collection. One end of my rack of shirts are those that haven't been worn in a long time, usually because they take some creative effort to coordinate with an outfit. Today's shirt is one of those.
