Showing off is never a good idea. However, balancing a bold pattern with an outfit can often be stiking in an elegant way. The shirts in this post are from Peter Werth, a British brand with some fine sartorial history, and these shirts certainly are bold.
This Haines Red Shirt will help you make a statement. It includes a bluff collar and a placket fly to conceal the buttons. Matched with a dark suit and tie it would serve as a good accent to the overall look. If you stare at it for a little while this pattern sort of makes your eyes go funny. £65 from Peter Werth.
This Radford Navy Shirt is the most expensive of the three featured here, at £80. It has a floral pattern of white on dark blue and on the inside of the placket and collar stand includes a similar pattern with a lighter blue background. It’s a clean, sophisticated look that is good fro spring and summer but I find dark shirts are less versatile when matching with trousers or a jumper that shirts based on white.
A tad more subtle that the other two shirts, The Henshall White Polka Dot Shirt includes something I’m always a big fan of; the button down collar. Nice little bit of detail included at the back of the shirt; a Peter Werth signature tab under the collar. However from the looks of it, this shirt doesn’t include a two-piece split yoke; a small refinement that helps match the pattern on the yoke with the front pieces. This shirt will set you back £60.
