Fabulous Frilled Lace Shirts For Men
A gentleman of taste who likes a little ornamentation on his clothing is frequently disappointed in modern times by the lack of choice he is afforded in the clothing department. The modern trend is to dress men as if they were automatons, interchangeable by definition, and very plain to look at. Yes, the modern trend is to mute men's fashion to the point where all men look the same. One could claim that this is an attempt to somehow curb male individuality and redirect fashion originality towards the female of the species, who being pretty well ineffective in all other areas of life, can apparently be trusted with bright colors, frills, bows and other items of glitz and glamor, but I believe it is more likely a reflection of laziness on the part of men who, less consumed with (and judged by) their appearance on average, are quite happy to wear any old shirt that fits.
Just because many men would be quite happy running about in sack cloth, those men who are more fashion conscious should not be denied the joys of frills. One way that men can reclaim frills and lace for themselves is to wear shirts that sport frills down the center, or which sport lace upon the sleeves. These types of shirts do tend to traditionally be reserved for formal occasions, cabaret appearances, and swashbuckling on the high seas, but there is really no practical reason why a man cannot incorporate a lovely frilled shirt into his everyday attire.
Though some might claim he looks feminine as a result, others may find that instead he looks rather debonair. Fashion is about expressing oneself. It serves no real function aside from that. If we were simply concerned with warmth, we could all bang about the place in seal skin dresses, but we don't, because that would not be an attractive personal statement.
When we look at fashion as being a form of self expression, we can allow ourselves to dress more freely, and we can look at ourselves as others might see us. What does it say about a man when he wears precisely the same sort of clothing as all his peers? Does it imply a reassuring sense of conformity? Perhaps. Perhaps it does attract people who seek a traditional, dare I say, cookie cutter lifestyle. But if one is seeking excitement, a point of difference, and the strength to buck current fashion trends and social morays, then a man in a frilled shirt is sure to be attractive.
So then, wear what you want, whether it be a penguin shirt, a technicolor dream coat, a frilled shirt or a tutu. The world needs your brightness, your vigor, your daring fashion statements to counteract the forces of dull that threaten to overpower us at any moment.
