Alex, I Owe You An Apology

A bespoke shirt customer asked me during a consultation 'What do you think about white collar and white cuff on a black shirt for say a Friday night?". I shook my head and responded "unless you sing soul, play a saxophone or own a nudie magazine, you might not pull it off". Then I saw how well this look was translated on Kato in 'The Green Hornet'. Granted, they are superheroes, but I think my shirting customer could pull it off and so I owe him an apology. Now he just needs to find the right braces.

Kato wears a black poplin shirt with white grandpa collar and white club cuff with black braces. Warning: this look would more likely suit a slimmer 'Dior' styled body.
