If you are looking for something standout and different in your formal wear, perhaps this gold shirt and bow tie is for you.
The body of the shirt is made from fabric which has maroon in the warp thread and gold in the weft of the weave, so that the colour changes depending on the lighting and the angle from which it is viewed. Overall, it's a maroon/brown shot with gold. The collar and bow tie are gold. The collar points are fairly long. The bow tie is just a bow stitched to an enormous safety pin. Fabric is polyester/rayon. Made in Australia for Anthony Kulsar -1980s.
This shirt belonged to a formal wear hire company and their barcode is firmly stuck on the front shirt tail.
