Last weekend I was in Connecticut getting ready to hit the road back to Massachusetts when my best friend’s dad came to bid me farewell. He was SO HANDSOME that I actually gasped. He’s a very distinguished and handsome man in the first place, but he was wearing a gorgeous and impeccably ironed paisley shirt in autumnal colors under a camel chamois shirt with chinos and boots. Before I hugged him goodbye I just HAD to ask: “Is that a Liberty of London shirt?”
He smiled at me with one of those inscrutable dad expressions and said that yes, it was. I totally died. SO FASHIONING. His shirt kind of looked like this one:
And I thought, “Okay, I bet he’s had that for a really long time, because Liberty does NOT fade or age, and my readers can’t afford Liberty Of London but they can certain borrow this idea and find paisley shirts for way under $225 — even under $60.” Just use the Google, my friends.
Guys, what a warm and handsome look for those harvest fair-type church events, a day at the office, or any time you want to add some interest to your look. Who needs boring solid shirts every day? Wear a paisley shirt under a blue blazer, or under a corduroy shirt, or under a V-neck sweater. Sharp, sharp, sharp.
Here are some actual Liberty of London shirts. Legendary.
