Today’s featured item in The Canvas is the men’s gingham shirt, similar to the one that Chris Kos wore during our Real Style, Real Value photo shoot. We thought his gingham shirt was the perfect piece of clothing to feature as it’s a staple piece in a lot of men’s wardrobes.
Although a gingham shirt may not seem like a formal piece to wear, worn with the right slacks and accessories, it’s easy to make it suitable for work. Wear it with black slacks, a belt, a bow tie and a pair of semi-rimless frames, like the D&G 5104 1071 Gunmetal glasses and the gingham shirt is transformed into the perfect Monday to Friday dress shirt.
A fun night on the town is always needed on the weekends. Pair this gingham shirt with some dark jeans, a v-neck, a pair of casual runners and some brow line style glasses like the Derek Cardigan 7010 Smoke glasses and you’re ready for a night out with the boys.
Day at the Beach
The sun is out and it’s time to hit the beach. Wear this shirt with a pair of cotton shorts, casual boat shoes and a pair of sleek sunglasses like the Maui Jim Maui Cat III Gloss Black Maui HT 209-02 sunglasses to complete the beach motif. Don’t forget to pack your sunscreen and swim shorts in your messenger bag!
If you plan on running errands all day or having a few casual meetings with friends, the gingham shirt is perfect to wear all day. To get the cool and casual look, wear this shirt with a pair of Ray-Ban RB5225 5036 Dark Avana Transparent Beige glasses, similar to the ones Chris is wearing in the picture. Add a pair of khaki’s, a white v-neck and some dessert boots and you’ll be comfortable enough to run around all day.
