Some things are hard for me to shake. For example, I grew up wearing a lot of collared shirts. T-shirts are difficult for me to wear unless I’m exercising.

But then I began to notice some very stylish looking men wearing crew neck sweaters without shirts.

Mr. Takada makes me want to try cropped trousers, even. Greek calves and a stocky German build just won’t lend themselves to the look though. He does solve my issue of feeling like I’m wearing a t-shirt by the addition of a neckerchief.

Now all I need to do is lose ten pounds. Extra-fine merino sweater by Sunspel. (I’m still getting used to the idea.)

  1. I love the look of a neckerchief with a crew neck sweater. Like Cary Grant in To Catch a Thief.

  2. Chris, I notice man in the article by The Rake is wearing wide leg trousers. Do you think this is a new trend?

    As usual, thanks again for your wonderful posts.
