5 Days, 5 Ways: How to Wear a Popover Shirt
scrumptious summer shirting
The popover is the shirt for sluggish summer mornings. Y’know, like Monday mornings after an especially lit World Cup. Not that I’m hungover. Who’s asking?
Born in the 1960’s, the popover quickly became an Ivy League wardrobe mainstay, and with good reason. It has all the tailored benefits of your favorite button down, but with 60% less button-fumbling. Plus, while casual in nature, the popover is nevertheless versatile enough to work its way out of your weekend wardrobe to go here there, and everywhere.
