I was pleased the other dayÂ to find some new newness for the guys at JetDoll.Â In fact, I was actually delighted to see what Kity Pidgeon had come up with this time.Â Kitty’s new men’s shirts bringÂ togetherÂ three venerable traditions: bowling shirts, safari-inspired animal prints, and pin-up girls.Â Is this a perfect storm of design elements?Â Three great tastes that taste great together?Â Are they so cool they’re hot?Â So hot they’re cool?Â You’ll have to judge for yourself, but I think it may just beÂ a little bit of all of the above.Â Two different styles are available, called Zebra and Leopard for the animal prints used on collar andÂ cuffs.Â The shirt fabric is deep black in color, but the shading includes subtle highlights that suggest actual contour, definitionÂ and sheen without simply making the black lighter and thus…not black.Â The matching black buttons have a little bit of glossy shine–realistically noticeable but not at allÂ distracting.
If you think the shirtÂ front looks great, wait ’til you see the back!Â If there’s anything that could put these shirts right over the top, it would definitely have to beÂ cute cartoony pin-up girls in safari wear, the perfect Jane to your retro Tarzan.Â These girls are charmingly snarly, and they’re decked out in outfits that perfectly match each shirt’s animal-print trim.Â Rowr indeed.
The Leopard style is shown here;Â the ZebraÂ style features its own different pin-up girl. Â These shirts are provided on the jacket layer only, for untucked wear.Â What, you tuck in your bowling shirts?Â Please…tell me it isn’t so.Â
