It’s been a long time since I’ve received so many compliments on a shirt, but everyone seems to love this cotton band collar shirt I bought at MAN 1924 in Madrid.


It looks like linen, but the tag says cotton.  Whatever it is, I love it.

    Perfect summery shirt, Scott! Fantastic shot! Hope you had an incredible time in Bali (how could you not?)!

    With a pair of khaki cargo shorts this shirt will make a perfect combo.

    Most likely thin striped cotton seersucker, no?

    Beautiful shirt, I must agree. The color, the pinstripes, the look of the fabric.

    I actually got a similar looking shirt with band collar and in a similar blue, but no pin stripes. It’s simple, yet very elegant. I love it.

    You look really great in that shirt! As well as in general… you’re just very handsome.

    Are those aviators smaller than average? I love how they look on you. When I put on standard Ray Ban aviators they seem rather large.

      Ditto – always on the look out for smaller profile aviators…haven’t seen them yet.

        I’m petite and Ray Bans overwhelm my face. I found some beautiful smaller aviators at Oliver Peoples.

    I have a tendency to prefer men’s clothing and this shirt is a perfect example. I like everything about it, especially the collar we called, a long time ago, Nehru collar. Great picture.

    my mum bought me sarong when she was in would be interesting to post some ways to wear locals do :)
    btw..I advised my brother to buy a shirt like that, and it looks great on is mixture of cotton and linen, the best kind of fabric for summer..maybe yours is also mixture ;)

    It really suits you well also in Bali.
    Probably because of no collar
    making you look more laid back and cooler in that tropical island.

    I wear a linen long sleeved shirt a lot when I stay in Bali and found it’s the best
    material to wear there also avoid mosquitos!

    I want you to visit my dream house in Ubud!

    The sunglasses are perfect for you, fit & style. It makes me think how this is rarely mastered!

    Man, great shot. The shirt is perfect and the relaxed look makes me want to be sitting at the beach wearing it. I’ve gotta check out Man 1924.

    It’s a great fit – that’s got a lot to do with it. Looks like the neckline has been cut really well too. Nice.

    Beautiful shirt and man. I think the Garance impact is at work here enhancing both shirt and man.

    Nice shirt. I think the word ‘Linen’ is very loose, and sometimes refers to cotton as well. In Arabic we call linen “Kettan”… Cotton, which is originall an Arabic word is..well.. Kottn. So it seems like the 2 are not always 2 different things.

    The band collar is a look I’ve been getting more and more into. Kind of a modern gypsy look if worn the right way. Great pic!

    Don’t know you except for following your blog but have to add that something about the shirt really suits you.

  59. Mello

    July 20, 2013 at 10:01 am

    I love the aesthetics of your work, so don’t get me wrong. But there’s something very jarring about a picture of a little girl in what we would in the western world describe as poverty followed immediately by a woman on the streets of Paris indicating a lavish and extravagant lifestyle of fashion, and then you talking about how many compliments you get on…your shirt. I do love the detail-oriented nature of this blog, but some of these bali posts seem sort of “thrown in” as if their only value is aesthetic and you’re not possibly capturing a much more profound subject in those pictures than in ANY of your others.
