I Love A Pop-Over For The Australian Summer

A pop-over for the Australian summer is ideal for a few reasons. For one, if you are in and out of the water, on or off the beach, in or around the pool, you cannot really wear a button up shirt. It can be cumbersome if it gets slightly moist and it probably needs to be laundered after every use. As a compromise, a crinkled pop over looks better than a t-shirt, it can be dressed up or down and gives you a shirt without having the formality of being in a full button up shirt. This example is after unfolding it out of my bag. Still looks good, still holds a lot of shape. This particular shirt is made from Carlo Riva light blue cotton twill with white contrast and blue detail on both collar and cuff. I urge Australians to re-consider the pop-over during the summer. It sure looks a helluva lot more sophisticated than wearing a v-neck t-shirt.
