There is nothing like a well-cut dress shirt. In a very fine fabric, an excellent custom shirt can be world changing. Many men have the problem of fitting in both the neck and the body simultaneously — with a custom shirt, no sacrifices on fit need to be made. It’s a hell of a thing.
I’m here to propose taking it a step further. Enter: the Popover. You may be familiar with the Reyn Spooner version, Hawaiian printed and preferably worn with a lei. This is a great shirt, but not quite as useful when not in a tropical locale. As we look forward to summer (despite only being a few weeks into Spring), Fridays bring a new challenge: how to get from the office to the beach (or pool) as quickly as possible. You can get into a swim suit with no problem at all, but a shirt? Tough to rock a t-shirt or polo to the office. And, unless you are Clark Kent, those extra few seconds it takes to change could be the difference between mind-numbing traffic and a tiki cocktail. Not a tough choice, in my opinion.
