Philippe Perzi Vienna is excited to announce the arrival of a new men’s shirt to the collection; the Jack Buchanan. If you want to take your style to the next level – the tab collar is the way to go.
Why name a men’s shirt Jack Buchanan?
For those of us not old enough to remember, Jack Buchanan was Britain’s answer to Fred Astaire… and was also a fashion maverick and style icon, partial to wearing a tab collar shirt.
Tall, handsome, debonair – Jack Buchanan was a comedian and a great song and dance man of his time – he was making the women swoon back in the 1920 and 30s, when the tab collar shirt was really coming into its own. Yep, it was pretty good to be Jack Buchanan me thinks. In fact, to be called a “Buchanan” was a compliment, which suggested you knew a thing or two about dressing well.
With this in mind, we thought that ‘Jack Buchanan’ was a fitting name for this rakish new addition to the collection.
Jack Buchanan was a style icon of his time and a big fan of the tab collar shirt.
So, what makes this stylish men’s shirt so different?
Tab collar: the tabs fasten under the tie’s knot to hold the collar’s points in place, thrusting the shirt collar and necktie knot higher up under the chin. Check out our latest blog for the low down on the tab collar. This is the perfect shirt for men with long necks as the tab’s higher positioning balances out your features and equally, men with round or square shaped faces will appreciate the longitudinal symmetry brought about by the collar point’s positioning and the tie knot. Daniel Craig sported a tab collar when he played James Bond – why not channel your inner 007?
Single button curved cuff: The scalloped edge adds to the overall stylish effect of this shirt without overdoing it – we think the tab collar is sufficient to make this shirt stand out from the crowd. Did you also know that the single button barrel cuff is ideal if you want create the illusion of longer arms?
Giza 45 Egyptian cotton: Known as ‘The Queen of all cottons,’ we’ve previously extolled the virtues of this exquisite fabric. One of the defining characteristics of the beautiful Jack Buchanan men’s shirt is that it is made from 100% Giza 45 Egyptian cotton. Getzner (see our latest blog) have woven this strong but silky thread into a subtle blue micro check fabric. This shirt feels so light, smooth and silky, we guarantee you won’t want to wear anything else next to your skin.
