Jaspers Special men's shirt made of fine cotton in darkgrey

Regular price € 272,25 including VAT

Minimalistic men's shirt made of soft bamboo-cotton mix, whose extravagance is realized in the special details - and which proves versatility in combination with other obstinacy.

The German psychiatrist and philosopher Karl Jaspers is regarded as a flaming representative of existential philosophy, which clearly distinguishes itself from Sartre's existentialism. Accordingly, he sees communication as the antidote to borderline situations in which people lose all grip. Conversation would restore the existential hold: "The fact that we can talk to each other makes us human."

The men's shirt from our own atelier, which we designed as a tribute to the philosopher, also provides support in a certain way. Made from a fine blend of bamboo and cotton, the minimalistic creation is a versatile companion for cool days and nights in spring and summer and occasions of all kinds. A chameleon that can be worn either classically elegant or - if you turn up the collar and roll up the sleeves a bit - casual.

And now for the obstinate details:

the classic collar with the tapered collar legs and the small wave on the back.
the concealed button placket on the front.
the extravagant wide cuff with a small slit and concealed button placket, behind which three smooth horn buttons are hidden.
the two seams on the back - the first vertical, the second running diagonally across the shoulders - that meet in the middle - with a little imagination a metaphor for Jasper's concept of communication: in existential conversation two paths meet.
the unconventional round hem on the front.
the characteristic three ocher stripes on the hem.

The subtly extravagant men's shirt becomes an elegant ensemble in combination with the slim trousers 'Gropius' in black cotton and with the jacket 'Fromm', also made of black cotton. If you like it more unconventional, combine 'Jaspers' with the harem trousers 'Kafka' made of fine cotton in black: In this combination, the obstinate character of the wearer comes especially to the surface.

eigensinnig wien: special avant-garde fashion for men and women.

Under our avant-garde fashion label eigensinnig wien, we manufacture unique fashion pieces for obstinate characters. We design our collections in an experimental process, enriching them with thoughts and ideas from the fields of philosophy, art and literature or drawing inspiration from philosophy, art and literature. That is why our trousers and jackets, blouses and dresses bear the names of philosophers, literary figures and sociologists. We work with materials from nature, which we like to combine in asymmetrical, avant-garde cuts. Our aesthetic is based on the Japanese wabi-sabi concept: “Pare down to the essence, but don’t remove the poetry.”
