My husband Matt believe it or not, actually really enjoys coming vintage shopping with me. He enjoys looking at the old treasures and occasionally finding the odd item for himself but rarely does he find shirts that will fit him. When it comes to dressing in the vintage style, he heavily relies upon vintage reproduction.
With The Oblong Box Shops well established niche for quirky novelty prints, I was excited to see that they would be offering a selection of Menswear for the dapper gents in our lives. Designer Denialle has put her own spin on the classic bowling shirt style, adding little tasters of her fun novelty prints to the panel.
With Matt’s favourite colour being green and as a keen lover of all things nautical (he is a boat builder after all), the obvious choice for him out of the selection available was MCM Fish Men’s Button Down. The custom designed embroidered fish on the shirt is probably as much novelty as Matt could take and we both love the more subtle feel of the shirt as a whole.
The shirt is a typical mid-century box cut shirt in a lovely olive green with cream accents. Matt wears the size Large which fits really well, leaving a bit of room for ease of movement and to keep him cool in warmer weather. This design actually matches one of Denialle’s novelty print skirts so couple can match if desired!
The MCM Fish Men’s Button Down Shirt is USD$95 and comes in sizes S-3XL, catering up to a 58″ chest. There’s tons of other fun shirts for men, not to mention what’s available for the ladies so make sure you have a browse through the wares on offer at The Oblong Box Shop!
