It’s over the top in all the right ways.
If we’re looking for playful, irreverent, but ultimately stylish menswear, then we’re looking for anything from Alexandre Mattiussi’s line AMI. The Frenchman has earned legions of loyal fans who are happy to open their wallets for any number of his modern spins on wardrobe staples. It’s one of the many reasons we made him anointed him one of our Coolest Menswear Designers on the Plantet for 2017. And a case in point of his something-for-everyone talents is exemplified in patterned shirt that takes a design that could be clownish in less capable hands (in this case polka dots) and blows it out (and up).
A large-scale polka dot print button-up shirt can impress at the office or outside of it as long as you make sure the other pieces you’re wearing are helping make it the focus. That means keeping to the sober side of menswear and letting this graphic shirt do they heavy lifting, whether under a suit or your go-to denim jacket. The most surprising thing about a piece like this AMI shirt is just how much use you’ll get out of it.
