Some express beauty while others evoke rebellion.
But some seduce you to ask question and invites your eyes to find the answers.
I recently found this gem while thrifting in the menswear section of a second hand store.
I was instantly drawn to keep exploring the shirt.
The more I really look at it, up close and a far, laid flat or upon my body, the more interesting details began to emerge.

|Arm hole seam|
Notice the subtle white stripe before the white and black stripes meet on the chest and sleeves.
What first caught my eye about this shirt was the stripes on the chest. They're almost headache inducing, but doesn't that add to the allure? It feels like I'm a walking optical illusion.
To add to the visual enigma, the playful stripes (line) dance uniformly on a gradient of black fading to gray to white. As it fades to white, the black stripes grow thinner.

Pair my new favorite shirt with a black bow tie, a textured, geometric clutch and a few silver rings.
