Or would you call them stripes? Let’s just say the pattern lives in the space between strips and checks…and plaid. Whatever you call it, I love it. Not only does the shirt have my beloved ruffles, but it also has a Mandarin Collar. My neck is on the shorter side, thus I’m not crazy about how regular collars look on me. A Peter Pan Collar can be okay, but a classic men’s shirt collar is just not great. I have a few shirts with regular collars that I like in theory, but every time I try to wear one, I end up changing out of it right away. I think it’s the collar. I’m now feeling inspired turn all my regular collars into Mandarin Collars. The internet must be awash with tutorials on such things.
