A lot of entries on this blog have mostly been about pieces that I customize by way of DIY projects or design from scratch. I find such joy in bringing out my craziness through personalization. That is why when I learned about e-store Blank Label from their web strategist Danny Wong, I thought their fresh concept of co-created dress shirts would be a great fit for The Dandy Project.
The half-and-half shirt by Blank Label. I have coveted a few in the past, and this one seems to be a feasibly wearable option.
Blank Label is an online store that allows you, the customer, to exercise your creativity through co-created dress shirts. Co-created shirts are much like custom shirts, only, you customize within a given set of options, and the experience is more streamlined. I could go on and on about the mechanics of Blank Label, but I think it's best that you check out their website and see for yourself how delightfully easy it is.
I'm a huge fan of the covered placket, which so easily makes a shirt look modern and minimalist, try it out under the "placket" portion of the "style" section.
Having just recently launched October 31, 2009, Blank Label describes itself as the intersection of fashion, technology, and the world wide web. Prices start at $45 for a shirt. Not bad, I say!
The mandarin-collar shirt, a style staple of mine, updated with a covered placket.
