Summer of linens!
When I visited the village of Portofino, Italy I came across a small shop that sold men's linen shirts and swimwear. Since I already have a plethora of swimwear I was interested in their linen shirts - okay I have a plethora of shirts too but I digress.
Immediately, my eyes were drawn to their red linen shirt from Orizzonte Portofino by Xacus. It had a Mandarin collar instead of your normal collar so I knew that I didn't have anything similar already.
With its blue stripes, I knew it would look perfect with my white trousers that had blue stripes. With the red shirt being a loud color the white of the trousers added a perfect balance of keeping the style clean and not too overpowering.
I finished the look with a pair of navy brogue shoes from Goodwin Smith. I added a gold chain and a pair of John Dalia sunglasses to complete the details of the outfit.
