Time to get shirty…

So what is a good layering item… that can solve and serve numerous sartorial dilemmas? I’m thinking it could be a shirt.

Right now, layered over a skinny rib polo neck jumper, or under a chunky knit… layer with just vest underneath, or under a blazer or biker.

I’ve an industry trade show coming up in a couple of weeks – I’m Paris bound on the first Eurostar out and back on the earliest one I can justify back. But it will be long enough to catch up with some people, listen to some trend talks and do a forum or two. Get in, get out, and leave everyone wanting more.

There is however, always, the what the hell am I going to wear, boots I can walk in (can’t do trainers as much as I might love… but I need some height to counter balance the mince pie width). Black jeans/trousers?

I’m thinking a shirt could serve me well, under a jacket/blazer of some sort.

There are still some good sale items to be had – even now… go forth, these won’t let you down and will see you through until summer. Imagine.
