mens dress shirt

The reason why men’s and women’s shirt buttons are on opposite sides is likely due to the extravagance of the upper class. When buttons were invented around the 13th century, only the wealthy could afford to have them on their clothes, and wealthy women were dressed by their servants, so clothiers started sewing buttons on the other side to make it easier to dress the lady of the house.

I rather liked my green Ratio Clothing shirt so I said “thank you sir, may I have another?” But by “another” I meant “two more in summer weight oxford.” Due to the extreme heat we’ve had in KC this summer, I’m regretting the fact that I haven’t always had light-weight oxfords at my disposal.

The blue is a lovely shade called “bay blue” which is slightly lighter than the French blue that was so ubiquitous in the 90s. The other is lavender and it is purple, but light enough purple that we call it lavender. That’s how it works.

I made the special request of making the Fitzgerald collar unlined and added a box pleat. The blue collar feels thicker than the lavender, which is paper thin. Does that mean my blue and green shirts had lined collars? I don’t know, man. Some things just need to remain a mystery.
