Hi There..... Are you a fan of Italian Fashion?
I really love the Italian Style of Fashion. It’s something that I can’t really explain, but I have always loved the look of Italian men. When I was a young girl, I used to say to my girlfriends that the guy I would marry would have to be an Italian. Not only because of their look but also because I adore their food.
He doesn’t like it when I talk about him, but my husband is half-Italian. I really didn’t know that when I met him. He wasn’t really the guy I was interested in at that moment, but he fell for me right away. I suppose we were meant to be together, somewhat like a destiny. Turns out we really are made for each other because we have been together for over 30 years already.
That’s why I was thrilled when I got accepted for collaboration with HemdVoorHem.nl. They specialize in Shirts and have an extensive collection in their online shop. Their shirts are not at all average and most of them are non-iron.
Cool, non-iron that sounds perfect to me but for this time they sent me 2 very nice V-neck T-shirts from Alan Red to show you.
I have to tell you that receiving their T-shirts was not the happiest moment for me. No, not that I didn’t like them, but because of what happened when they delivered the package. Let me tell you my story.
Some of you know that I have a chronic illness and have to cope with a lot of pain during the day, but also at night. The pain wakes me up multiple times during the night, and that’s why I take sleeping pills. With those, I only wake up about 2 or 3 times a night instead of every hour. When I take them I have to make sure I have at least 7 to 8 hours of sleep to function.
It was still reasonably early in the morning when the postman rang the doorbell with my package. I had been up later than usual and had only slept for about 6 hours. I didn’t want to leave the postman waiting too long and hurried to the Intercom to open the door downstairs. When I left my apartment to go check, the postman had already left the package on the stairs.
Since I had just come out of bed without combing my hair or anything, I wanted to rush and get back inside quickly. That was not the best idea because when I put my foot on the stairs I slipped. I tried to grab the railing but was halfway down the stairs before I could finally get it. At least I learned a valuable lesson: that I have to stay in bed and let my hubby get my packages next time.
Ok, back to business, let me tell you more about Alan Red first. In 1940 the Magir Company was founded in Varese, Italy. After years of producing T-shirts, polos, and sweatshirts for famous brands, they started their own label in 1996 as Alan Red & Co. They sold their first collection in the Netherlands and a few years after its introduction, Alan Red became one of the largest specialist suppliers of fashion basics for men and women. Thanks to their high quality, modern collections, and portability, they are still the market leader in the Netherlands. Because all their production takes place in their own factories in Italy, they can guarantee high-quality requirements.
Their T-shirts are very suitable to wear under a shirt. They are available with a V-neck or an O-neck in a Slim Fit and in a Wider model, with short, long, or without sleeves. Safe to say that there is a suitable Alan Red T-shirt for every man.
When I unpacked the T-shirts, I immediately could feel that they were of excellent quality and they were nice and soft. They felt nice and comfortable, my husband said, not too tight but still a great fit.
Here are some other examples of this Alan Red T-shirt collection for men
