If I’m honest, I think I’d look like a professional nonsense in this. But the thing is, menswear appreciation doesn’t revolve around the contents of an individual’s wardrobe. It should umbrella myriad concepts and proposals. A true recognition of men’s clothing must be unbiased and disciplined. Even when faced with a 146 quid, chasm-necked, potters shirt.
I know that fired pottery that isn’t yet glazed is called Biscuit. I know that because I went to the Wedgwood museum once with school. Other than that (and Swayze’s phantasmic kneading in Ghost) I know nothing about pottery. But I think you’d kind of have to, to get away with this.
Even wearing it off duty, down the pub, people would assume you’re a potter, just one wearing your bestest, ‘going-out’ smock.
According to retailer Haven, this N.HOOLYWOOD piece has, “raglan cut sleeves“, which are, “utilised to aid in optimal mobility.” Which is a fancy way of saying, you can move about in it. A function as useful for potters, as much as it is for any human person. Come to think of it, as it’s such a posh utilitarian garment, maybe it’d be ideal for a guy who by day is a regular potter, but by night is a crockery themed superhero. Earthenware Man perhaps? Kaptain Kiln? The Amazing Glaze? Dr Porcelain?
