Description

Rugged but refined, this 1940s-inspired shirt from BurdaStyle Sewing Vintage Modern works as well for the edgy urbanite as it does for a laid-back country boy. The classic fit makes it a perfect choice for both workdays and movie nights, while the military-style pockets render it both stylish and practical. Make it short-sleeved for a summer staple, sew it in denim or men’s shirting, or use contrasting fabric for the pockets, like plaid or polka dot.

    I’m not a fan of the collar, it’s pretty big. A lot of store bought patterns have very large collars for some strange reason. I always always always have to shorten the collar and neckband to suit my style.

    It is retro though.
