I’ve been wearing, almost exclusively, cotton shirts for so long I can’t even remember the last time I had such a silk-ish shirt. I remember rayon was big in the 80′s so maybe it’s been that long.

I thought this one by Christophe Lemaire at The Broken Arm in Paris was very cool.  (more about the great new shop The Broken Arm very soon.)

    Still can’t make ‘em right, though. Top button hole is for nerds…no loop hole for a classic look. Button thread line is still visible. Can’t anyone place it on the inside anymore? Most likely you overpaid for this.

    I prefer cotton poplins, crepes and canvases to silk as cotton ages really well and the colours turns more beautiful after every wash! But I pick up a great silk shirt once in a while for diversity and the luxury of it. I remember MiuMiu had some great options when they still did men`s wear..

    Great color and its texture seems great too! I’m in the cotton side too but I’d try something like that though.

    2 of my favorite shirts I recently purchased are of this combination. Super comfy but the fabric wrinkles easily so I have to keep a bottle of spray wrinkle relaxer on hand.

    Yeah, but synthetic/natural fabric blends don’t breath that well when it warms up and you’ll want your cotton shirts back.

    Uhm, this will go out of fashion and I would be tired seeing it in may wardrobe within 1 hour. A cotton shirt, my old button-downs will never.

    Interesting how people are so worried about things “going out of style” or that it is a “nerdy look”.
    Isn’t style just wearing whatever you like at the moment?

    I don’t understand the mix of silk and viscose.
    Does it make the garment less wrikly ?

    Silk deals with heat/cold, humidity/dryness better than even linen or cotton. Ask the Japanese and other Asians. Check out the Tommy Bahama all silk shirts and silk/cotton shirts from Territory Ahead, Carbon2Cobalt and even Orvis.
