A few years ago I would never have assumed that I would wear anything beneath a shirt. I would consider it somehow not sexy. I would rather be able to have my girlfriend’s chilly hands caress my skin beneath the shirt. No matter the temperature. I will say that this is still my standard. But I’m quite fond of this open shirt that seems somewhat libertine-like look. When combined with some more classic menswear pieces then you don’t risk looking like a slob, while maintaining that sexy hedonistic vibe of a libertine.
For me what worked was a loose fitted shirt (dress shirts won’t work!) tucked in and barely buttoned, a tank top beneath, a belt to create some contrast, a pair of rolled up chinos and then a pair of loafers. If you’re trying to replicate the look, don’t be afraid to unbutton all the way down, or maybe just leave one button buttoned.
