In the current day and age we are constantly overwhelmed with trends and fast fashion, just look at the H&M’s and Zara’s of the world. You can get shirts, coats, shoes, whatever you want for prices that are actually mind blowing if you really think about it.
However, at the same time everyone wants their wardrobe to do as much work for them as possible. This means consumers want clothing that is high quality and will last you much longer than that $10 button down from H&M, that feels like it’s an infusion of cotton as well as cacti. That’s why I advocate for choosing quality over fast fashion, I still love you though H&M. Investing in pieces that are more versatile, a higher quality, and better craftsmanship is an investment that your early 20’s self will thank you for many years down the road.
Now that you know a little bit more about the brand and their history, we also need to talk about the actual products and how and what I am styling them for. As the post title suggests, you can really wear these shirts for any occasion that comes up for you.
First, I’m going to cover work. Obviously, we all work (unless you are inheriting a fortune, then we should talk) and all want to look and feel good in the clothes that we wear to the office. It is especially important for me to do this, first, because I have always been into fashion and it is one of my distinctions in the workplace and how people initially recognize me. Second, because my job is so client facing I always have to be put together and look good, especially with our fashion clients that I have been working with recently.
As a result, the pieces that Primestitch makes, from their dress shirts, to their ties, to their vests, are perfect for the office! Honestly, I don’t wear vests often and am not usually into them. However, this vest won me over because of its functionality and Herringbone pattern. I personally don’t think you need to pair a vest with a suit, so I opted not to and instead go for a great burgundy pant that is perfect for winter. If you don’t have to wear a suit to work but want to shake things up and impress your co-workers I would recommend throwing a vest into your wardrobe lineup.
