Stripes at Aphrodite1994

Earn Your Stripes: Summer Stripes Edition

Spending its early life on the torsos of sailors, criminals, clowns and other despicable characters, the striped garment has enjoyed it’s latter years as the classy fashion choice. With its versatility we felt it essential to offer the best in stripes from the Aphrodite1994 range.

Vertical Shirts

Although thought to be exclusive to your wolves of wall street, the vertical stripe to a crisp shirt adds a perfect patterned layer to any outfit. Wear it like you would a regular oxford or chambray offering as an overshirt in the warm or layering in the cold.

As simple as it comes, the tailoring on offer from Japan’s favourite minimalist brand is unparalleled, justifying the high-quality price tag. With its point collar, single-needle tailoring and a patch pocket to the chest, this usually formal styling takes on another life as an essential wardrobe wearer for finest of casual combinations.
One of our wardrobe essentials, the Striped Ralph Lauren Oxford is such a staple in Polo archive and so intrinsically Ralph Lauren that other striped iterations of the oxford shirt might, in fact, be mistaken for it. 100% cotton construction woven in a thin slimming stripe, this shirt has been cut in a slim fit for a more tailored look that guarantees a versatility not seen by many, making it perfect for dressing down and up.
 
Having covered its blue brother in our recent ‘Kind of Blue’ feature, it would just be flat out rude to not acknowledge the pretty in pink sequel. Styled as a box fit Hawaiian shirt, the striped garment includes a choice of button up or casual collar all developed in a holiday-ready linen fabrication.
Hooped Polos

A sporting classic, any champion of the athleisure wear is sure to provide their spin on the hooped polo. With a look that screams either Wu-Tang or Tiger Woods depending on your preference, there’s a serious amount of versatility in the style.

Part of a double bill of Paul & Shark polos (think of this as the Godfather 1 to our up and coming Godfather 2 in a world where the Godfather 3 doesn’t exist) this variant of everyone’s favourite yachting outfitters is a sure fire way to be noticed by its standout colouring and fine quality crafting. Smashing 3 nautical colours into one with its navy, light blue and orange colour combo, it’s a surprisingly easy dress down option for jeans, slacks or a fitted trouser.
 
You can rely on only a number of things in life: death, taxes and Ralph Lauren Polos. The American outfitters will forever be associated with the colourful world of polos, finding a foot in 90s streetwear with their varied design. With it’s red and white design, this polo is a simple and slim staple shirt.

You didn’t have to wait long for the big reveal, and can you say you’re satisfied with the offering? It’s a unanimous yes from the Aphrodite team, and we’re sure it is from you too. Tempting the simple white and grey base with a pale pastel pink is a stroke of colour blocking genius from the Italian team and offers a colour variation to their rather simplistic variations.
Pinstripe Pants

You haven’t seen this kind of pant style since prison wear, and it isn’t as juvenile as once before!

In a league of their own as our singular striped pant option, the Armitage trouser from Oliver Spencer is a relaxed fitting, formal looking, pinstripe weave that you didn’t know you wanted, and we guarantee you’ll need after inspection. We live in a world where formal wear is now comfortable, so get with the craze and strut to the corner shop in style.
Basic Bretons

The industry standard, the iPhone of the garment world, the universally recognised sign of a mature fashion icon, the striped t-shirt says it all with only a small palette to work from, but boy does it work!

As it goes with Scandinavian minimalism, there’s only a select number of patterns accepted into its new age architect lookbook. It’s a good job that monochrome stripes are one of the foundations of the movement, as there are very few better dress down fashion styles. Norse Projects, your friends from the utmost north of Europe, are champions of the striped garment, adding tiny embellishments to each model. The Niels Tee takes on a sketched line work display in its stripes for a unique look.
What’s better than a single stripe pattern? Double stripes! Also, not a stranger to a striped garment (as displayed above) are Oliver Spencer. Their Conduit t-shirt is the gateway to a finer casual style offering a simple base in this outing, placing navy and grey as the two-tone offering.
No messing around from Folk and their classic stripe offering. This dictionary definition offering of the striped style needs no sell, it’s a solid piece of kit for your wardrobe!
Multicolour Bretons

Lifes too short to be boring, so lighten up a bit and add some colour to your striped wardrobe.

It’s simple, it’s striped, it’s yellow. Dubbed as ‘beeswax’ in its subtle colouring; the soft shading to the typically bright colour welcomes a foundational pairing option for a plethora of outfit editions. Treat yourself to this extroverted colouring for the warmer months.
