This dress shirt is meant to evoke calmness and stability with its hunter green, white and medium brown colour scheme inspired by trees of the evergreen forest. And like the evergreen trees, the buttons used has a little bit of wood on it.
The crimson, white and powder blue colours on this dress shirt were inspired by those of the English football club, Aston Villa. However, let me be clear from the very start there is no association of this shirt design, myself or anything related with the Aston Villa football club. It was just the colour scheme that inspired me so I named my shirt appropriate to give credit where it’s due. I’m a Manchester United fan. :-)
It’s just a little thing, a thread. So easily breakable a child could break it with his or her bare hands. If anything is hanging by it metaphorically, it’s by the slimmest of margins before it’s gone. Yet, it is so strong.
Ah, men’s dress pants. What can be done with them for design without getting disapproving looks for “unprofessionalism”? Not much, really. Even a stripe down the side or something makes them athletic and too casual. Flashy colours makes you look like you’re going dancing, even if it’s a hip look. Colour block you look like you’re going out dancing or for a fashion show. Even jacquard style tone on tone is regarded as being a bit much by some. So what can one do?
Up till recently, I had been making tennis shorts long like beach shorts. That’s partly because of the deep pocket required to hold a tennis ball in my pocket at times when I play, and because it’s more the current style. However, seeing all the ladies at my tennis club in their uber short tennis skirts, showing off their legs, I got jealous and decided to make my tennis shorts shorter. I had nice legs, too!
