Street Style... 348 King Street., Charleston
So sometimes I have a photo that I just have to post, but the quality of the photo is lacking due to light or other issues. So I played with some of the vintage photo settings in GIMP with this one. This young Gent was from the UK and owns a vintage clothing shop over there. He had some great insight and opinions of the comparison of American fashion to UK and European fashion, really nice guy!
Now pay attention guys, that shirt he is wearing is called a guayabera, pretty much the only kind of shirt I wear in the summer months, I get mine from Puerto Rico. Now don't get this confused with the tacky knock offs you might find in beach shops or at a Jimmy Buffet concert. Four pockets in front, solid colors, Linen, 2 Rows of alforzas (pleats) in front, 3 rows in back, short sleeves, button all but the top button, iron it nice and crisp, nothing more. Also, if your going to wear an undershirt only wear a V-neck because they are very sheer, crew neck will make you look like a goober.
Now go find you some and be ready for summer next year.
