Men's Shirt Details

This shirt is a little different. Look closely and see if you can see it.

From the designer, Steven Alan, it is called the *reverse seam shirt inside pocket.* Yes this designer's signature includes a chest pocket on the inside. The inside. Handy when one is dressing or undressing. Otherwise, maybe, not.

DS showed me two shirts DDIL purchased for him at a discount mall. He asked me - is this defective? He wore it once and tried to put his sunglasses in the pocket, only to discover this signature detail. I was 99.9% certain DS was right and offered to *fix* it for him.

First, though, I googled variations on this defect/concept. And that's how I learned that the twisted placket was deliberate too. And reverse seam? I haven't spotted that yet.

I know it must be hard to come up with variations - shall we say, twists - on the traditional man's shirt without going feminine. I just don't know about these particular details. Of course, I am not a member of the target market either.

So now I'm off to *fix* his two shirts of this variety.

What say you - creative? interesting? weird? documented features?


  1. hmmm I think I am in the "weird" camp (says she who just partially completed a shirt with skull and cross bone for the inside yoke and collar band) enjoy mending, fixing them.
