An overshirt can transform casual chic ensembles into elegant classic looks, whether layered over sweaters and jeans or combined with shirt or suit jacket in colder climates.
Search for fabrics with substance and structure such as heavy cotton twill. Avoid fabrics that are too thick as these tend to resemble full-fledged jackets more than overshirts.
The overshirt is an invaluable transitional piece in any man’s wardrobe, serving as an alternative to lightweight jackets in warmer temperatures when temperatures don’t allow for both shirting and blazers. Overshirts come in various colors, fabrics, and styles – from suit jackets to jeans or even under a wool coat they are incredibly versatile and have even become famous among Hollywood and fashion photographers such as Paul Newman or Bill Cunningham! It has even become increasingly popular within military and public service organisations – this olive overshirt made of cotton fabric has two large chest pockets which feature two large chest pockets plus has horn buttons with relaxed fitting for more comfort – available only sizes M or L!
