by MAURICE TERZINI, owner of Sydney institutions Neild Avenue and Icebergs—and no stranger to the finer things.
Maurice Terzini is a dominant—and stylish— presence amongst Sydney's gastronomic elite. Known for their authentic dishes, his Mediterranean-influenced venues continue to grow in stature. Just as well, his latest establishment, Neild Avenue, proved so in vogue that it played host to Kirrily Johnson's fashion week show.

Nothing looks sharper than a crisp white shirt. It'll punch on from office to cocktails and work with anything you throw at it. It'll make your tan show, too. The right shirt makes you stand a little straighter, walk a little taller—even feel invincible. Why settle for less?
Collars come in an impossible array of varieties—but there are two you should be focusing on. The semi-spread is the best option for today's man: strong, progressive, with a hint of classic style.

Every man's style starts somewhere. Calvin Klein launched his label in 1968—in a hotel lobby. With $10,000 and an initial collection of humble outerwear, his sartorial vision went global through a range of lines, most famously underwear. All-American fashion has been dictated by this style master for decades. Just as well, that $10,000 became more than $700 million when he sold his company in 2002. Rely on CK for masculine edge with effortless cool.
With a CK dress shirt you can pull-off classic style, with panache. The cut is slimmer, but keeps a timeless spread-collar—the perfect upgrade for whatever's on your back. Slim down and button up, gents.
Never leave yourself scraping the wardrobe for dingy spares. Life's too short.
There's little to fear.
