Men's wardrobe essentials are invariably quite basic affairs but it's time to think outside the box a little with retro style bowling shirts. When you consider the likes of Charlie Sheen have popularised bowling shirts in the last few years, they are beco

It is fair to say that many men’s closets lack a certain something because, most of us, tend to have certain items that we favour and we find ourselves reluctant to try new fashions and styles. But it is always a good idea to be a shepherd and not a sheep when it comes to our clothing, so thinking outside of the box is a must.

If you’re looking to add clothing a little out of the ordinary to your closet but don’t want to stray too far from what’s fashionable, then men’s retro bowling shirts are definitely a good place to start. This type of clothing has become a good deal more mainstream in recent years and this is largely due to many references in popular culture.

The most noticeable example of this would be in the form of Charlie Sheen in Two and a Half Men, where he was consistently (perhaps only) seen wearing bowling shirts in the show. This definitely showcased the fashion potential of bowling shirts and more and more men are now rocking this look in their day to day lives. Don’t just take my word for it that bowling shirts deserve a place in your closet, check them in out in action on Charlie Sheen below:

As you can see, bowling shirts are cool, casual and can be worn out and about and at home so there really is no excuse for not adding a few bowling shirts to your closet. When it comes to casual style, it is good to mix things up a bit and, it goes without saying, we’ve all got plenty of tees, polo shirts and shirts in our closet but there are those times when we want to stand out a little more and bowling shirts are perfect for this.

Retro style clothing is definitely set for a big year in 2013 and with style icons like Charlie Sheen as inspiration, it would be difficult for men to steal this look. Looking good is all about feeling confident, so it is important to wear bowling shirts with confidence and not be self-conscious that it is something a little out of the ordinary, so far as men’s fashion is concerned. Obviously, men will have different tastes when it comes to their clothing choices but there is certainly no harm in thinking outside the box a little and retro bowling shirts definitely fall into this category. And anything that is good enough for Charlie Sheen, is good enough for me.
