The gift of choice for sophisticated gentlemen this Christmas season is a dress shirt in new and colorful incarnations. Red buttons, contrasting colors in the seams, and a colorful pattern on the reverse side of the collar or the cuffs are in demand.

“Our trend-spotters report that even conservative customers are accepting the new cuts of the dress shirt and the new colors. They provide a boost to the grey suit and make it possible to look well-dressed, even without a tie,” according to Mikael Sandström, fashion buyer and chairman of the style division at the Swedish Trade Confederation.

The Christmas trade is responsible for about 12 percent of annual clothing sales in Sweden.

    Back when my husband & I were “suits” I used to buy him Stenströms shirts at NK almost every Christmas. They make handsome shirts!
