This morning we were reading one of our favorite blogs, Effortless Gent, and came across one of the best videos we’ve seen yet talking about button down shirts and fit. The video is from Mr Porter and features a great commentary by designer Michael Bastian as he discusses the versatility of a button down.

Michael says a button down shirt is versatile because:

“you can dress it down and you can dress it up…it’s kind of foolproof in a way, there’s really no wrong way to wear it”

He goes on to discuss an issue very near and dear to our hearts – fit:

“There’s no right or wrong way to wear a button down…the only thing I can think of is make sure it fits you well”

Enjoy the video and feel free to add your own comments below!
