Work Day Styling with Blu Murray Shirts

Craig of That Dapper Chap takes three shirts by Blu Murray and shows us three different styles.

“Fashion changes, Style is eternal”

Meet Blu Murray

Blu Murray is a Dutch menswear brand that offers shirts that fit better, feel better and last longer. They operate with the belief that high-end pieces should be affordable to all and that luxury comes with comfort.

“we dispel the illusion that good quality comes at a higher price. Our shirts offer a modern British cut with a contemporary style”

Made from a high yarn content cotton with a refined weaving technique, the shirts are soft and breathable. 

The Shirts

I ordered the white fine twill shirt with French cuff, priced at £30 (40 Euro) it’s perfect for the party season and that more formal event. in 100% cotton it has a mid spread collar and is a slim fit.

I also ordered the blue ‘Allure‘. It has a micro check pattern and a classic spread collar and is a slim fit. The third shirt is the navy Oxford. With a cut away collar and singled rounded cuff it’s made from 100% cotton.

Look One

For look one, I wore the white twill shirt under a classic navy blazer and with navy chinos. wearing separates rather than a suit makes the look less stuffy than it may have, particularly as I’m also wearing a bow tie.

As the bow tie had an orange stripe I chose accessories to compliment it with the pocket square and lapel pin.

Footwear was a pair of orange socks under some classic black leather brogue boots.

Look Two

With the navy oxford shirt I pulled out my grey herringbone suit. I did wear all three pieces including the waistcoat but as it was unseasonably warm, I had to lose it.

As the suit has small red and blue flecks in the material I opted for red accessories such as the red and blue diagonally striped tie, bobble hat and socks along with red lapel pins. I also wore my Daniel Wellington watch with a red and blue striped nato band

The shoes are a thick soled black leather apron boot.

Look Three

For the final look I wore the blue ‘Allure’ shirt. for a more relaxed look I wore a denim blazer and again I chose to wear a pair of navy chinos.

Accessorising with yellow accents, the navy and blue striped tie and yellow pocket square and lapel pin keeps the look together.

The yellow socks continue the theme and the navy and tan two tone brogues finish the look, adding additional interest.
