Yesterday was, I think, the hottest day of the year so far. I couldn’t stomach the notion of wearing a tie, and wanted to wear a shirt that would keep me cool in the heat. Seersucker is a great fabric for such an occasion, but the contrast cutaway collar on this shirt has made me never wear it without a tie before. I decided I’d go for it, and am quite glad I did.
Though the shirt (by Lands’ End, and purchased on clearance for ~$17) is a bit trendy, in that it’s made of seersucker but also has a contrast collar in a cutaway shape, it is those very disparate and incongruous elements which make it a shirt that dresses down fairly well. I’ll probably wear this shirt several more times this Spring and Summer without any neckwear.
