The summer is almost here, and it’s time to talk about something that could possibly change the way you think about dress shirts. For many men, wearing button-up shirts can be uncomfortable because the shirts often absorb sweat in the heat. In this post, I want to introduce John Miles
– the ultimate shirt brand that sells performance dress shirts that are moisture-wicking, wrinkle-free and quick-drying. Their shirts would make great gifts for men this summer
as they’re some of the most functional shirts that I’ve seen!
A bit about John Miles- the brand makes all their dress shirts in Australia, which means that the materials and manufacturing process is extremely high quality. The shirts are made with a 4-way stretch which means that their garnets give off a slimmer look. The most unique thing about their shirts is that they are totally wrinkle-free and hassel-free, which means that you can scrunch it in your bag and it will still look fresh after you take it out!
I recently got this lovely Non-Iron Classic Fit Pale Blue Dress Shirt
– I chose this shirt because of it’s beautiful colour, as pale blue is an elegant, versatile and flexible colour that goes well with any outfit, be it casual or formal. The most important thing about a good shirt is that it can be worn in any occasion, and this one definitely fits the bill. John Miles also sells them in white, gingham and other cool colors.
In terms of the style, the shirt is beautifully designed and looks extremely stylish. I think the lovely blue pattern is beautiful because it is slightly textured, which makes it look unique and interesting. The knitted pattern of the shirt makes it stand out from regular plain shirts. The shirt also has removable collar stays, which makes the collar stand up well and suited for formal occasions. I love the shaped hem in the bottom, and the lovely white buttons which blends in with the shirt.
As for the comfort and fit, the shirt is made with a very stretchy material composed of Nylon, Lycra and Polyester. The combination of these materials means that the shirts are quick-drying and any sweat from the body is quickly evaporated in the air. I got a Size Small for my boyfriend, and it fits him just fine. You can probably get a size smaller because of the fit, but they have a useful size guide which you can use. The shirt is extremely soft and comfortable, which is really surprising as I never expected a synthetic material to feel so luxurious!
The quality of this John Miles shirt is absolutely top-notch. Since John Miles makes their shirts in Australia, their quality check is impeccable, and they even package their shirts in laundry bags that you can use to wash your shirt in! I really enjoyed this little touch, and washing the shirt in a bag will also extend the shirt’s life, ensuring that it lasts for years to come.
Overall, John Miles really hits the sweet spot in creating functional, beautiful and hassel-free shirts for men. It’s hard to find shirts that can keep one cool during the heat, and these shirts pack and unpack easily without any wrinkles at all. They outperform any dress shirt that I’ve ever seen, and is my boyfriend’s new favourite shirt (which got him lots of compliments). I cannot recommend John Miles enough!
It’s just something us guys need to do. But it doesn’t mean we like it.
We’d much rather walk around in a singlet, tracky dacks and runners all day.
Not constantly adjusting collar and worrying about our sweaty pits in a tight, hot, uncomfortable shirt.
Does a shirt really matter?
All that first impression gibberish:
You never get a second chance to make a good first impression.
A well dressed man is the best accessory a woman can have.
Dressing well being a form of good manners, according to Tom Ford.
Yada yada yada.
Someone give me a no fuss shirt please!!!
If we have to wear a damn shirt. Please don’t make us:
Hang it pedantically.
Scrub burger juice stains off it like our life depends on it.
There’s more to life than a shirt
Like playing golf with the boys.
Taking the kids to cricket.
Learning what makes a good brew.
Figuring out how to keep our better halves happy (happy wife happy life apparently, though we know that’s not quite true).
In short: Life is too short to waste it thinking about shirts.
But I still need to look good, society tells me.
So go on, just give me a low fuss shirt that never goes out of style and get on with it.
I’m out for drinks with the boys tonight.
