I’ve been on a fairly extensive white-blouse trip the last few weeks and in that time have learned that there’s a serious void in the marketplace. Most every female I come across asks me where I managed to find the most perfect over-sized boyfriend fit blouse–case in point, at which point I retort: it’s a brother fit blouse and from the Lands’ End Boy’s catalog. Cha-ching, corny and magical, trust.
I have a sixteen year old brother who is slim and handsome. When he was 13, however, chunky and cute–emphasis on the chunky. It was at that time that when my mother would order his school uniform from Lands End, I would put in a request for one more white blouse. She insisted I cop a smaller version, one fit for a woman, I told her though that I was not a woman and if she ever confused me for one again I would jump twenty six stories out her window. I’m kidding, that’s a really dramatic response to a seemingly objective insistence. But my point is, ladies, if you’re looking for the perfect white blouse, abandon the usual suspects and look to where the boys shop for school. I’m talking Club Monaco Men, the Lands End catalog, and, fine: for the sake of clarity, the Acne blouse photographed above, made for vaginas, does look pretty damn good too.
