THIS JUST IN: Peter Models His Lace Shirt at Mood!



Lace Day is finally here!

You can see me model my lace shirt and gray jersey shorts right this minute over at the Mood Sewing Network by clicking here.

So easy!



Naturally, I'm curious to know what you think.

Is black lace just too....revealing for a menswear?   (I hope not: I still have plenty of the stuff.)

Have a great day, everybody!

  2. I really like it, and the scalloped hem at the back was a stroke of genius!

  4. Great job! I know the shirt is the main attraction in this outfit, but I have to say I'm loving the shorts! You inspired me to try Thai pants last time, now I might have to give something like these a go too!

  5. I love it. I really didn't think that all of the fabrics would work, but they do. It's really a wonderful shirt. The whole outfit is fun.

  7. I admit I was skeptical when you started this, but you sold me on it. It is totally androgynous. I actually thought the placket was a tie when I first looked. I think you knocked this one out of the park. Kudos!

  8. The whole outfit is just great. I really like it way better than the designer in the lace tunic and white shorts.

  9. Love the look. You definitely have to be lean to pull it off. I doubt R Avedon ever had a better model than you. apologies, Dorian, Dovima & Suzy.

  10. Great look, Peter! My favorite photo is the one at the Comme des Garcons entrance. They can't touch you!

  11. The shirt is SO fantastic. The edging is brilliant. Love the entire ensemble, but think kung fu black slippers might bring a bit of edgy Asian into the picture. But either way, such great pieces!

  12. fabulous! Adore the scallops. I love the shot where you are walking, and you can see how the whole outifit is light and flowing and springlike. I'd love to see it styled with beige pants that apporximate skin colour so that the effect of the see through lace is continued all the way to the hem

  13. A+++ on pattern mixing. An excellent result. It's so refreshing to see clothing for men that is fresh and innovative hit the streets.

  14. That would also look great with a black and white gingham tie for more formal occasions. Great shirt!

  15. I'll paraphrase what I wrote at Mood - LOVE the shirt - the fabric mix, scalloped hem, lace just dense enough to cover and not wander to tacky-land.

    The shorts...I'm not loving. Not hating either. When the waistband is covered in those straight-on front photos where you are standing on both legs evenly, they look like they're twisted, or uneven. On the side and action shots, they're fine. The color is great with the shirt though!

  16. Love the Steichen photograph opening this blog, happy to see my all time favourite photographer on my favourite blog!

    I think the shirt is fantastic, I actually think you showed Marc Jacobs how to properly do lace! Go you!

  17. Interesting Shirt !!! I think not having buttons (preferably light ones) at the center, causes the eye to move to the edges of your design , to the sleeves . So my eye is moving away from what ideally should be the focal area which would be central and up and to the face. This I find an unsettling aspect of the front design P.S. I enjoy your blog and the mental stimulation you provide.

  18. Oh dear, I think you may be converting me. Fox News will say "We told you so." And my family may disown me, if I start running around in outfits like this. But if I can't wear what I want at 60, how long do I have to wait?

  19. I like the shirt's design but I would've gone more dramatic and made the shirt out of lace except the collar. The collar I would've made out of white cotton batiste. Your shirt looks very good though! Good job!

  20. I think the shirt is very well-made but I'm not too keen on the combination of so many, very different fabrics in one garment. I think you can definitely use this lace for menswear though. For a man who is not afraid of somewhat daring outfit choices, that is.
    I'm a little disappointed but the trousers. In this soft fabric, the unusual pleating isn't really shown off. Although I bet they're really comfortable

  21. You finest creation yet! Or among them, because I like all your finished garments really. I do especially like the subliminal tie effect of the opaque placket. It makes me want a lace front skirt with a light woven collar too.

  22. I like the black lace but do not like the combination of different colors. To me it looks like a lace vest over a short sleeved shirt. So I am in the minority. However, I think you did a great job structurally.
