Now that Negroni is out there, I wanted to share some inspiration we’ve collected for little details you can add to spice up a guy’s shirt. First, I’ll start with some cool details from retro menswear company Original Penguin. I love the dark contrasting underside of the collar on the double nugget shirt above, and it would be a very easy change.
I think the welt pocket on this cotton check shirt looks great in the small plaid.
The tiny pocket detail on this check tonic version is really cool, and I just about always love black and white gingham on men.
The double buttons on Mister Meanor remind me a little bit of a chef’s jacket.
Covered buttons on a men’s shirt? Plus bold ticking stripes? Plus sort of weird geometric pocket flap? Why not, it works on this one from Robert Geller.
Or how about squared-off pocket flaps and button tabs for rolling up the sleeves? Dark chambray is also my absolute favorite right now, this one is from Obey.
And here’s a cool wide spaced stripe Rachel found, with some fun directional variation on the pockets, from UO.
Hopefully that’s gotten your gears turning and given you a few ideas for variations on your Negroni. All these little details might help explain why menswear sewing gets addictive.
