MWD: HOW TO WEAR PRINTED SHIRTS

30.04.13

Something has shifted in menswear over the past couple of years and guys have become far more willing to take risks when it comes to their style. Printed shirts are the perfect example of this as they are often a bold and vibrant choice of attire. We look at ways to wear this stylish trend and how to make the look your own.

Print Perfect

When investing in a printed shirt, it's important to take the time to find the right pattern for you. The obvious choice might be to opt for a quirky style to make a bold style statement, however there are ways to take a more conservative approach to the look. Stripes, polka dots and paisley designs can all be boardroom-worthy when featured on a formal shirt.

Retro Wonders

Our favourite way to wear the trend this season is with vintage, or vintage-inspired, printed shirts. As these stylish gentleman prove, a shirt with a retro shape and print is a unique and of-the-moment way to nail the look. Perfect for casual dressing, team one of these styles with anything from tailored shorts to tapered chinos.

Many of the prints in our SS13 collection have been loosely based on designs and materials our design team have come across in vintage stores and flea markets. This has made for an authentic retro feel in many of our styles.
