Stripes / by Didier Young

Shirt; Monocle X Saint James, Shorts; Parke and Ronen, Glasses; Bailey Nelson

Ever since I can remember, navy and stripes have been a staple in my wardrobe. It makes for the perfect easy going, nonchalant look that looks good in the urban jungle or on a boat alike. This particular shirt comes from a french brand called Saint James that I recently discovered at the Monocle store in Toronto. For more than 125 years, the brand has been making clothing that is beloved by sailors and fashionistas alike, and they are well known for their nautical stripes.

The shirt originally caught my attention due to its interesting colour and pattern blocking. With the solid navy frontal part and the striped back, its a piece that commands attention without screaming for it. You can definitely count me on board with the Saint James crew now.
