That is the brand new color of the PS Linen Overshirt – a pale olive inexperienced. I like it, however it’s a contact uncommon so I believed it was value capturing with completely different colors, simply as an instance how I feel it could work significantly properly.
The overshirt is accessible on the PS Store, having simply come into inventory alongside the navy we launched with final 12 months. The darkish brown from that launch will probably be arriving in a few weeks.
The overshirt was the preferred factor in 2021, so I do know there’ll a whole lot of demand, significantly given how good the climate is within the UK in the meanwhile. I didn’t wish to wait one other two weeks to launch all the pieces collectively.
Whereas we’re on the topic, three different merchandise had been restocked up to now fortnight: the PS shorts, which had been simply behind the overshirt final 12 months when it comes to recognition, with the navy color now in the identical washed fashion because the khaki and inexperienced; the selvedge chambray shirts from 100 Palms, and corresponding cloth; and the shirt that began all of it, the Friday Polo, in white, navy, black and inexperienced.
Proper, with that out of the way in which, let’s run by these olive overshirt choices.
Above I’m carrying it with a white T-shirt and black cotton/linen trousers from Casatlantic (El Jadida mannequin). The sneakers are traditional Sagans from Baudoin & Lange in black suede, the belt is black alligator from Rubato.
The olive is admittedly good at softening these stark, high-contrast colors, and I like the truth that the end result will not be typical traditional menswear. It has little in widespread with what I’d usually default to – i.e. navy shirt, cream trousers and brown sneakers.
The black and olive appears extra fashionable to me, and a pleasant various to that navy and cream whereas nonetheless being fairly sensible.
The second choice is analogous, however loses that black ingredient, for those who don’t actually put on the color and so have little of it of their wardrobe.
The trousers are darkish brown – a very darkish brown, so not that removed from black, though any darkish brown works. They’re the trousers from this Dalcuore go well with, so high-twist wool, Holland & Sherry Crispaire.
That darkish brown is good with the identical black equipment, the suede Sagans and a white T-shirt. However a gray beneath the overshirt can be nice, and softens the distinction. I wore white with all these outfits for simplicity.
Final mixture – a way more informal one, the overshirt with my outdated light-blue classic Levi’s.
I feel you may see how nice the pale olive is with denim, and it’s good and relaxed with the sleeves rolled up, the T-shirt untucked.
This final mixture captures the flexibleness that I feel readers could be afraid olive would lack. I used to be a little bit too, if I’m sincere. I wished a 3rd color that was extra uncommon than the navy and brown (although in fact these two had been very specific shades) however was a little bit not sure whether or not the olive could be versatile in any respect.
It does look like, and I’ve beloved carrying it in latest weeks in these combos – as effectively with extra apparent issues like cream or white trousers, or one thing smarter like a mid-grey wool trouser and a white shirt.
Many issues work, as at all times. I’m positive readers will discover a lot extra of their very own.
In case anybody asks, by the way in which, no I don’t have a brand new Cartier watch. We shot this throughout the latest pop-up with Rubato, and I used to be carrying a unique go well with in the course of the day, with a unique watch.
That had a tan strap, which would not have labored significantly effectively right here. So I borrowed Carl from Rubato’s – each he and Oliver have little Cartier Tanks for costume watches. (You’ll be able to see Oliver’s in this piece in Stockholm.)
So thanks Carl, your watch complimented these outfits superbly. The strap is definitely a really darkish brown, flat and gloss alligator, which made me realise how a lot I remorse my choice to have a domed, matte strap for my Reverso. I additionally favor the bigger scales on Carl’s strap. Oh effectively. It’s a less expensive factor to alter than the watch.
These restocks along with store hyperlinks are:
Be aware there have been some small adjustments because the final iterations:
- The overshirts have sleeves which might be 1cm longer, following suggestions final 12 months
- The navy shorts, as talked about, are actually within the washed, sports activities make, just like the khaki and inexperienced fashions
- The selvedge chambray shirts not present the selvedge on the placket, as we felt this was cleaner and extra in step with the aesthetic of the shirt, specializing in the fantastic thing about the fabric
- Additionally, be aware that whereas another mills have began providing selvedge chambrays, they don’t seem to be woven on classic shuttle looms and so haven’t got the identical texture
