Dress shirts with yokes are often associated with country and western styles, like those of cowboys. I do dress shirts with yokes because they’re like canvases upon which I can show something, or are just opportunities to add a little colour to a shirt. However, I do them with Mandarin (or band) collars, tunic style not meant to be tucked in at the waist. The combination means I often joke about my style as that of an Asian cowboy. 🙂
This was supposed to have been a prototype for my winter Matrix coat, for fit. However, I got what I wanted out of it part way through, fitting the top properly, so I improvised some design to it rather than the all black Matrix coat. Next thing I knew, I got a coat I couldn’t let go and ended up with what I call my vampire hunting jacket for its strategically placed silver highlights, by which vampires would be repelled.
