In today’s fast-paced, interchangeable world we have spawned a new generation of ‘slashies’. A term we’re sure you’ve become aware of through a number of publications and personalities commenting on whether it’s a positive or negative to be a so-called ‘slashie’ – officially defined as ‘a person who is something-slash-something-else’ and, who knows, maybe slash-something else again. They’re the millennials, digital innovators and influencers who don’t just have one job or skill set, they have plenty. Which is commendable. But in this ever-changing world sometimes it pays to focus on the important things in life – like taking a break from your phone, going for a relaxing drink after work or simply having a lay-in. Schnayderman’s, the Swedish shirting specialists, certainly understand this concept more than most. Which is why we are particularly fond of them.
As you probably guessed from the ‘shirting specialists’ tagline, Schnayderman’s focus solely on making the best shirts possible. Rather than trying to expand its offering or dip its toe into the other waters of menswear, Schnayderman’s specialise in clean tailored shirts with the view of ‘bringing the art of shirting back into the 21st century’. Which is commendable enough.
Most impressively, though, is the fact that Schnayderman’s latest collection, which just landed online this week, is full of depth and colour. Featuring a range of slim-fitting button downs, relaxed plaid styles and premium cut fabrics, its full of the best shirts that money can buy. To help you decide on which one to invest in first, we have picked out a few of our favourite Schnayderman’s shirts, just in time for spring.
Black / White / Yellow P.O.W One Shirt
It can be said that Schnayderman’s played a fairly important role in the resurgence of the overshirt over the last few years, and just one look at the P.O.W One Shirt and you can understand why. With its roots set firmly in workwear, the overshirt is cut in a vintage fit that ensures it’s not only easy to layer through the seasons, but it’s also incredibly comfortable. Plus, the delicate virgin wool fabric and Prince of Wales checks ensures that it look and feels better than most overshirts out there, too.
Leisure Notch Shirt
Available in Black and Desert Brown, the Notch Shirt is special because it blends an amalgamation of different influences into one contemporary, easy-to-wear shirt. The lightweight linen-cotton shirt adopts gross grain tape pocket details, a wide notched collar, oversized white mother of pearl buttons and a simple curved hem. It shouldn’t work, but it does. That’s all there is to say.
Navy Seersucker Leisure Shirt
The Schnayderman’s Leisure Shirt is representative of the brand’s tradition of reworking classic silhouettes with a timeless quality. It’s made from Portuguese cotton that possesses a crisp, lightweight texture, to ensure the shirt will age perfectly over time. While, the granddad collar, curved hem and indigo colour hue ensure the shirt will also act as the perfect complement to light khaki colour hues come summer.
Black Denim One Shirt
Like its older brother, the denim jacket, the denim shirt is an essential in every man’s wardrobe – but that doesn’t mean it can’t get a remix every now and then. Schanyderman’s has given the denim shirt a heritage-inspired hit courtesy of a heavy Japanese denim construction and washed black colour hue. It’s the kind of shirt that highlights Schnayderman’s ability to make a hardware staple look effortless and so easy-to-wear.
White Pinpoint Tape Shirt
We all have white shirts, we all like white shirts. But we don’t think many of you will have one like this Pinpoint Tape Shirt. Complete with viscose cotton gross grain tape sleeve details, a button down collar and a single chest pockets, it’s the type of white shirt that is casual enough to wear through the weekend but also unique enough to give a subtle twist to a classic piece of tailoring.
Blue / Black Houndstooth Leisure Zip Shirt
Much like the fortunes of the aforementioned overshirt, the zip shirt has also enjoyed a bit of a comeback of late, and considering the current obsession with sportswear, it’s an unsurprising resurrection. The zip shirt has really caught our eye is the Leisure Zip Shirt, which pleasingly treads the hazy line between smart and casual. With its classic back pleat which gives the jacket a more refined, tailored fit, the Houndstooth shirt comes complete with all the familiar trappings of a shirt (turn-down collar and shirt cuffs), but it also manages to look incredibly slick, with its restrained colour palette and smooth virgin wool fabric.
