Shirt Guide | Show Your Stripes

A great alternative to the plain shirt without going too overboard.

Making a change to your work attire might not be as simple as first thought, the suits need to be plain and of a classic colour. We still need to tick certain boxes, unless we’re the boss or freelancer.

Everyone likes to wear something new, it gives a little confidence boost when people comment or notice and the easiest way to transform our look is by swapping our shirts. making the change from the regular plain shirts can have quite an effect.

The thought of a patterned shirt can seem daunting to some but there is middle ground in the form of a striped shirt. Still smart, still stylish but it adds something different.

We’ve picked a few examples of some of the stripe shirts available.

Gant The Broadcloth Banker Stripe Shirt

The true classic in striped shirts, the iconic shirt. Worn with a navy plain suit you can’t go wrong. Wear it with a smart plain tie or keep it more casual without.

Gant TP Seersucker Stripe Shirt

Give your stripe shirt a Summer vibe with a seersucker fabric. Designed to be a more casual than formal shirt these look fantastic under a linen blazer or a lighter coloured suit. No need for a tie but still fine for that boardroom meeting.

 

The final couple are slightly more bold, the first is a bright stripe from Fynch Hatton that adds a whole host of colour. The second is from Giordano and features a striking flamingo pattern with a subtle stripe to the background. Worn at that upcoming garden party these will certainly make a splash.
