Reiss Smithy Ls Bold Stripe Grandad Collar Shirt
Achieving the perfect balance between formal and casual, Reiss presents to you one of the highlights of their AW12 collection.
The granddad collar Smithy shirt comes in grey and off-white stripes and a tapered, slim fit. The modern style of the collar is accentuated with contrasting white cotton fabric, and the shirt is specifically designed with the cold winter days in mind. The two-tone shirt’s classic features include a simple one button cuff and a traditional box placket.
This versatile garment can be dressed up or down effortlessly depending on the occasion. For a relaxed, casual vibe, try wearing it with a pair of colourful chinos and a wrist of beaded bracelets. If you want the same laid-back vibe, adapted to warmer climate, replace the chinos with classic tailored shorts, a fun belt and boat shoes.
For a smarter, more elegant look, try to compliment the shirt’s sharp lines with a dark, sleek pair of tailored trousers. Both navy and grey would work great, but pay special attention to their slim cut. Ditch the belt to highlight the trousers’ impeccable fit on your waist. Finish the look with a pair of suede loafers or lace-ups. Avoid paring the shirt with blazers or suits because the granddad collar openly clashes with the powerful frame of the blazer.
The 100% cotton shirts retails at £75, a wise investment for such a stylish piece. Grab one to spice up both your casual and formal wardrobes at the same time.
