That is the brand new color of the PS Linen Overshirt – a pale olive inexperienced. I find it irresistible, however it’s a contact uncommon so I assumed it was value taking pictures with totally different colors, simply for example how I feel it might probably work significantly properly.
The overshirt is obtainable on the PS Store, having simply come into inventory alongside the navy we launched with final yr. 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 plenty of demand, significantly given how good the climate is within the UK in the mean time. I didn’t need to wait one other two weeks to launch the whole lot collectively.
Whereas we’re on the topic, three different merchandise have been restocked prior to now fortnight: the PS shorts, which have been simply behind the overshirt final yr 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 Fingers, 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 best way, let’s run by means of 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 basic Sagans from Baudoin & Lange in black suede, the belt is black alligator from Rubato.
The olive is absolutely good at softening these stark, high-contrast colors, and I like the truth that the end result is just not typical basic menswear. It has little in frequent with what I might usually default to – i.e. navy shirt, cream trousers and brown sneakers.
The black and olive appears extra fashionable to me, and a pleasant different to that navy and cream whereas nonetheless being fairly sensible.
The second possibility is comparable, however loses that black factor, for people 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 swimsuit, 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’ll be able to 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 needed a 3rd color that was extra uncommon than the navy and brown (although in fact these two have been very explicit shades) however was a little bit not sure whether or not the olive can be versatile in any respect.
It does seem like, and I’ve liked carrying it in current 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 loads extra of their very own.
In case anybody asks, by the best way, no I don’t have a brand new Cartier watch. We shot this throughout the current pop-up with Rubato, and I used to be carrying a distinct swimsuit through the day, with a distinct 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 gown 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 resolution to have a domed, matte strap for my Reverso. I additionally choose 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:
Observe there have been some small adjustments because the final iterations:
- The overshirts have sleeves which might be 1cm longer, following suggestions final yr
- 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 now not present the selvedge on the placket, as we felt this was cleaner and extra in line 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 do not have the identical texture
