Way back a man did not leave the house without a 3-piece suit, a crisp shirt and a silk tie. And while this was the norm, especially in the 50's there was a certain appetite for more casual clothes. Anything from sportswear up to Cowboy style shirts became more popular for the weekends and these open collar shirts are a perfect testament to that period in time.
The open Collar Corduroy shirts became popular in the 1950's as a form of casual workwear, seen as a more stylish alternative to traditional flannel shirts and even crossed over into Ivy League style later in the era.
Our second outfit is more casual and something that's just easy to throw on during the weekends with a slight nod to Ivy Style. Combining the rugged heavy oz. longsleeve by Velva Sheen with a pair of Stone washed jeans by Orslow, Classic Penny loafers by Alden in color #8 Cordovan to finish it off.
