The Revolutionary Wore: Band-Collar Shirts

Some wardrobe staples have gone in and out of style many times over the course of their existences. But on-trend or not, they’ll always have a place in our hearts, and likely always make their way back into our good graces at some point in the great wheel of style. We want to take a look at some of these eternal gems, where they came from and how you can get them now. We call it The Revolutionary Wore.

In this installment, we look at the currently up-trending band-collar shirt.

Racked with Pride


For 126 years, Houston shirtmaker Hamilton has been making some of the best custom dress shirts on the market. And now, for the first time, they're offering something straight off-the-rack—the new Hamilton 1883 line.

The shirts don't sacrifice on quality (they're still made in the U.S., and are as soft as you're likely to find), and include smart details like western-style stitching and dedicated pockets for pens. (Or, we suppose, more illicit things—we smell a trend.) And we're not just being because we did some of the modeling—though we suppose it doesn't hurt.
