Let’s just get this out of the way straight up: The Fashion Police have a bit of a “thing” about puffed sleeves. We like them. Quite a lot, actually. Which is why, even if the shirt on the left wasn’t by far the cheaper of the two, and even if we existed in a parallel universe where we’d actually pay £478 for a checked shirt*, we’d still choose Warehouse’s £40 shirt over Dolce & Gabbana’s £478 one. It’s just more fun, isn’t it? More flamboyantly, “hey, lookit me, I’m a puffy sleeved check shirt, and I’m proud to be one!”, while the more expensive version is just that little bit more restrained.
Yes, we’d go with flamboyant any day, but that’s just us. Which would you choose, readers, assuming that you were absolutely desperate to buy a pussy bow necked check shirt?
* We wouldn’t pay £478 for ANY shirt. Unless, of course, it was solid gold. Studded with diamonds.
