The best clerical shirt EVER #aclericalshirtthatactuallylooksgoodforonce
You may recall the scene from the Sound of Music where Maria (Julie Andrews) fashions outfits for the Von Trapp children out of the draperies. If you do, then you know precisely the method most clerical shirt companies use to fashion their clericals. Quite frankly, friends, I'm sick of it! I'm sick of all those billowy tuck-in cassocks they keep marketing to us as shirts. It's like they're sending us the subtle message, "you might be skinny now, seminarian boy, but soon you'll be gargantuan priest. You might as well get a clerical you can grow 150 lbs. into." Well, boys, I am elated to inform you that, after extensive research, I have finally found a clerical shirt that fits perfectly right out of the box. Gents, If you're a relatively fit seminarian or priest looking for a trim, softly-tailored, daily-use, clerical shirt, look no further than the Solivari Tab Collar Shirt (SOL9MM). In my opinion, this shirt meets all the specs. It has a slightly tailored cut that fits like a dress shirt should. It looks professional. It tucks in nicely with only a slight blouse above the belt. Don't get me wrong, this isn't a chauncey boy's skinny shirt. No, it's a tastefully tapered professional's shirt. Also, the sleeves terminate nicely about 1.5 - 2 inches above the elbow, which means it won't look like your dad's hawaiian, backyard-bbq shirt. Instead, you'll look like a priest should look, that is, unostentatious, handsome and professional. Additionally, the material is high-quality. The 65%poly: 35% cotton ratio is ideal, since it remains black after many washes and feels soft and supple to the touch. In conclusion, if you're the guy with no fashion sense, looking for your standard tabby shirt or you're a base jumper looking for a clerical big enough to parachute with, then mark my words: THIS IS NOT FOR YOU! No. Not at all. But, if you're the somewhat-fit to very-fit guy with at least a minimal appreciation for aesthetics and professional attire, then the Solivari tabby is for you.
Also, remember to do your holy hour daily. Don't get caught up in thinking about shirts and stuff.
