In an interesting collaboration, we see British menswear label Hentsch Man partner up with grooming site Ape to Gentlemen to produce a limited edition short sleeved shirt ready for summer 2012.
The new ‘Ape Shirt’ is inspired by 1950s living, and is a modernised take on their classic, and hugely popular, ‘Dean’ shirt silhouette.
Practical yet stylish, the ‘Ape Shirt’ has been constructed from a seasonal appropriate seersucker fabric, meaning that it will help keep you cool during this summer’s hot weather.
This understated basic is a classic must have piece of the season. Featuring a slim cut for those seeking after a more flattering fit, short rolled sleeves and purposely built front pocket, this shirt has a sense of understated elegance.
You may be wondering what was meant by purposely built pocket? Well for the gentlemen who like to take extreme pride in their appearance and keep their barnet in check at all times, the designers came up with an innovative idea to include a pocket to house a Kent tortoiseshell comb. Perfect for all you quiff lovers and Rockabilies out there!
Traditionally a pocket comb is carried in the back pocket of jeans or the inner pocket of your outerwear. However, with the warm weather looking set to continue over the upcoming months, both brands wanted to come up with a solution that could be transferred to your summer wardrobe – hence the comb pocket was integrated.
With just 60 pieces being produced, the shirt and comb combo retails at £110. To get your hands on one head over to the www.fashionmode.co.uk website.
