So many summer sales; so many garments I still can't afford. Today we're doing a little digital window-shopping over at Oi Polloi, with a quick survey of shirts from M.H.L. by Margaret Howell. Wear these shirts on first dates to make a great first impression that will slowly wear off as your true self shows through. Then wear them as you sit alone in your apartment, seasoning your quinoa tabbouleh with tears.
First up is this Collarless Shirt in an ecru raw cotton that's as creamy as good hummus. The design is clean and simple, and the banded collar is quite compelling. Wear this shirt and people will take all of your metaphysical statements 76.5% more seriously.
Oi Polloi's copy describes the chest pocket on this Pull On Overshirt as "damn near a work of art". I couldn't agree more (and I'm glad to see someone shares my pockets-as-art theory). The curved hem is a win, as is the square fit: I'm all about that boxy aesthetic for non-dress shirts. This shirt just screams "Buy me". Also, "Don't spill tahini on me".
Margaret Howell calls this a Fisherman's Jumper, because she's British and that's what they call sweaters. It's made from a 70/30 cotton/linen blend, so you can wear it to your next regatta (it may be summer, but it gets cool on the water). It even has reinforced patches around the neck, so that when your date gets all up ons, the collar doesn't get all stretched out. And you'd better protect that neck when you dropped 181 USD on it.
