If you don’t already have the up-and-coming shirt company by the name of Trumaker on your radar, you should. (And if you do, nice work. Keep reading.)
A little background: the San Francisco–based outfit (with Chicago roots) has been making a name for itself by turning out the sort of handsome, perfect-fitting dress shirts you’ll actually want to wear—without requiring a banker’s collar or salary. They do this thanks to the magic of the Internet and a nationwide network of Outfitters—think personal shopper meets tailor.
Those Outfitters come to you—at the office, the laundromat, wherever it is you’re most comfortable—and measure you up. Then you’ve got your pick of shirts sourced from world-class textile mills, and a few more details to iron out should you be so inclined. (This isn’t your average stuffy bespoke job, nor will there be an overwhelming amount of choices. The curating has been done for you.)
Then, about 30 minutes later, you’re done, and Trumaker will get busy working on your shirts. And before you know it, your new shirts will be at your door.

And we’ve rounded up the best on the market right now.
Every Monday morning from here on out—or at least until the mid-season break—the minds behind Kempt are sharing our thoughts on everything from the menswear to the Ritz crackers in last night’s episode of Mad Men.
As the old saying goes, the NBA season doesn’t really start until the playoffs.
And with the field of 16 tipping off the first of many seven-game series tomorrow—that’s a potential for 105 games in the next few weeks—it really does feel like an entirely new season. And in case you’re just tuning in now, for the first ever NBA postseason without any Lakers, Knicks or Celtics suiting up, we’ve put together this quick guide on each conference:
We’ve filtered through all of the online sale noise and graded your best options out there, should you feel inclined to do any menswear browsing this weekend…
Which means, if it looked good in 1940, or 1965, it still looks good now. And that’s why we’re continuing our grand tradition of exhaustive garment journalism by compiling all of the greatest moments in the history of polo-shirt-dom…
