Burberry’s checkered print is so iconic it has had its own scandalous past. Now, however, it is seen as one of the strongest fashion revivals thanks to the advent of athleisure, while remaining a staple in formal wear as well. Today, we see a specimen of Burberry’s classic check that manages to be both a form of casual streetwear and dressy attire. Confused? Honestly, me too! Nevertheless, see if you can figure out what this actually is – presenting the Burberry Brown Silk Twill Reconstructed Shirt from SSENSE.
Made in Italy, its shirt-style overlay is long-sleeved and made of paneled silk twill in Burberry’s signature Nova check patterns of beige, black, brown, and red. It can, however, also be worn in a way to drape the shirttail hem behind you.
With a spread collar and button closure at front, with mother-of-pearl hardware, patch pockets at chest and single-button barrel cuffs, this reconstructed shirt can be worn both as a part of a casual, sporty ensemble or as a more refined and dressed-up shirt in its elegant birch brown hue. Made of 100% mulberry silk, you can purchase this unique piece of garment at SSENSE in sizes 40 and 41 now for $2150 USD. See if you’d like to try it out and impress everyone at the New Year’s Eve!
