If there's one (of many) things that we've learnt so far in 2020, is that we should take things slow. The pace at which we've been living our lives and consuming things—everything from fashion to films—haven't been the most sustainable. There's just too much of everything, and at the same time, inherently nothing.
Local brand biro has been taking a slow fashion approach with its F. CLASSIC range. The third drop introduces a versatile striped linen shirt that's crafted from Herdmans linen. If the name is unfamiliar, just know that Herdmans linen is known to be one of the finest and most premium linen fabrics out there, what with its centuries' worth of experience producing the fabric in a Northern Ireland village. Herdmans linen is highly regarded for its durability, breathability and quick-drying properties.
As with every biro creation—and especially with F. CLASSIC—the attention to detail is top notch. Each F. CLASSIC linen shirt is made in Japan and fitted with mother of pearl buttons. The shirt's yoke though, is probably our favourite detail. The two-piece split panel creates a graphic directional detail that adds a touch of whimsy to an otherwise staid piece. It's also a clever design choice that allows the fabric to wrap nicely around the shoulder for a more rounded and natural silhouette; all in the details with this drop.
Available in two colours, biro's F. CLASSIC striped linen shirt is only up for pre-order so that the brand is able to minimise waste and produce only as needed. Pre-orders are open from now till 25 September 2020 and they will then be shipped by 23 October 2020. biro is offering free shipping worldwide too so you're only paying for a premium quality linen shirt that'll take you from casual to more formal settings, no sweat.
The F. CLASSIC striped linen shirt is available for pre-order now through biro's online store.
