The Return of Sam and Jeff
Over the past few seasons, Shipley & Halmos has been morphing into a solid source for basics, and they may have sealed the deal with their most recent fall/winter line.
Exhibit A is this toggle coat: not showy, but as good a specimen of classic American outerwear as you’re likely to find. They’ve also rescued some sweaters from their first season and come up with a sharp graphic print for the lining of their blazers. It’s the kind of self-mythologizing you rarely see on brands only four years into their tenure—but we’d say they’ve earned it.
