We bang on about overshirts all the time, but that’s only because they’re brilliant for pretty much every situation. The definition is pretty broad, but if it looks vaguely shirt-like and can be thrown nonchalantly over a t-shirt, you’ve got yourself an overshirt.
One of the better examples we’ve seen this spring comes from a little under-the-radar designer named Paul Smith. Grabbing inspiration from vintage workwear and preppy Brooks Brothers ‘fun’ shirts, this woven beauty features subtly contrasting panels in houndstooth and zig-zag patterns, ensuring people will be giving you a second glance without necessarily noticing why. Which, obviously, is a win in our book.
