Comme des Garçons SHIRT is, you guessed it, a line for shirts made primarily for men, alongside various easily palatable accessories such as belts and sneakers. The main selling points of the shirts are the quirky prints and graphic elements that make typical oxford shirts less boring. One can argue it’s not much more than a money-making machine à la CdG’s Play line, but I can appreciate some of the creativity that goes into many of these shirts, so much so that I bought a couple of them. I can’t say that everything’s a gem, but there have been notable printed shirts released in the past. It helps that there have been eye-catching campaigns done in the past that cemented its brand image.

    I dig the whole visual identity of CDC shirt brand, and despite their “Pharell Williams fan” clientele, I have to say there is quite a few of their designs I dig! Plus I think originally they were trying to do a “tee-shirt brand” for shirts, which is totally laudable.
