Adventures in Fashion – The Oke
The shwe yoke fashion is a decorative, functional piece that emphasizes the structure of a garment. It is typically located at the neck, shoulder, or waist area. A basic yoke is simple, but can be adapted to fit any style or length. It is usually used on the front and back of men’s shirts. It is also common to find it on a woman’s dress.
One type of yoke is called a split yoke, where the stripes meet in the middle instead of the side seam. This is a matter of personal taste, but many people claim it makes the shirt look cleaner. It is important to note that split yokes aren’t practical for solid colored shirts, as the extra seam can make the shirt look untidy.
