What’s the first thing you do when you hear the word ‘Movember’? If your anything like me, my first reaction is a quick shudder thinking about all those horrible moustache’s plodding around the place. However – personal opinions aside, Movember creates such a good cause for men’s health, therefore I can easily deal with the month of furry upper lips…
On the fashion side of things, High St retailer River Island is once again teaming up with men’s health charity Movember with the launch of four exclusively-designed shirts. I love a good fashion and charity collaboration!
Designed by the River Island in-house team, the line comprises of Oxford button-down collar shirts in 100 percent cotton, which all feature an ‘M’ for Movember embroidered on the chest pocket, a moustache on the sleeve gauntlet and a branded satin tab on the placket.
The shirts come in navy with a white polka dot print, a lightweight charcoal crosshatch, a red, blue and yellow check, as well as white, and will be available from the first week in October in selected UK stores and online.
Each shirt will be priced at £35, with 30 percent of sales proceeds going to men’s health charities, specifically for those fighting prostate cancer, testicular cancer and men’s mental health. To mark the collaboration, River Island will also host a ‘shave down’ event at its 213 Oxford Street store on November 1 with its one night only pop-up barbershop. So spread to word to all those men!
