Animal print is what they call a ‘marmite’ fabric, here in England. A strong tasting yeast-extract-based spread, Marmite divides opinion. The brand’s tagline is even “love it or hate it”, therefore we often refer to things like acid jazz, musicals — or indeed, animal prints — as a bit Marmite. Well, I love Marmite, and I love this Leopard-print piece by Style Eyes
The Toyo Enterprise brand is doing its thing with its Velveteen L/S sports shirt in “Leopard.” The 100% cotton velveteen, like all Style Eyes shirts, channels the very best of American sportswear from the 1930s onward. This open collar shirt might be audacious on the surface, but its details are super classic. An open collar, two chest pockets, and button closures make for a stylish leisure shirt that’ll be sure to catch the attention of possible mates when you’re out and about.
This is definitely not a shirt to wear if you want to blend in, but layer it right and it will add just the right amount of cat-like elegance to your fits.
Available for $167 at Hinoya
