Paul Smith Men’s Slim-Fit Grey ‘Birds’ Print Cotton Shirt
If you are into animal motifs, you may want to check this unique and striking shirt from Paul Smith. Diverse bird species add contrast to the grey like splashes of paint. A definite attention grabber, this dandy shirt should preferably be worn with a pair of slim-legged trousers.
Ted Baker UTKU Floral Print Cotton Shirt
Whether you choose to layer it or wear it on its own, Ted Baker’s UKTU short-sleeved shirt is an immediate standout with its bold floral prints against the soft shimmery blue cotton. Pair it with jeans, chinos or even shorts for an effortless look—you don’t want to look like you are trying too hard.
Kenzo Signature Shirt
Kenzo’s Signature Shirt succinctly melds Japanese minimalism with French sartorialism, and this simple white shirt bears nothing more than the brand’s distinct signature above the word ‘Paris’ in black. That aside, other subtle intricacies like the ‘Kenzo Paris’ engraved buttons and stitched detailing draw the eye to the right places.
Gieves and Hawkes Midnight Blue Silk and Cotton Teardrop Print Shirt
Featuring smoked mother-of-pearl buttons and an exquisite teardrop print, Gieves and Hawkes’ silk and cotton blend is all about comfort and style. Its dark shade of midnight blue is most suited for formal occasions, with either a blazer or a dinner jacket depending on the dress code.
Versace Bauhaus Print Silk Shirt
In true Versace fashion, this pure silk shirt is an explosion of expression with its multitude of colours and ornate designs that feature Roman Greek elements. Inspired by the Bauhaus art movement of the early 1900s, this garment is not for the faint-hearted, so be prepared to show some flamboyance.
