The tip of the shirt that just peeks out from a buttoned blazer, especially if stark white, creates that quintessential polished look. Feathers would've destroyed that image. But here, it's cleverly retained by absorbing the colour of the jacket to mute it. Stark elegance. There's a paradox if anyone sought one. Of course, there's nothing wrong with simply running with the obnoxiousness by amping the colour to something more eye-catching, but I'm sure it would get a few raised eyebrows in an office.
As if there wasn't enough intrigue, a lapel pin bearing a single feather refines it. Here are new elements to be considered when wearing a blazer. Either, your collar must be extravagant, or a few lapel pins must be heartily mediated and finally, change the texture of your shirt entirely and consider.. feathers.
