And just now, the washed oxford button-down in question has landed in their e-shop, ready for warm-weather OCBD escapades of your own. The 20s two-ply oxford cloth is woven in Brazil—they know a thing or two about dressing well in balmy climes—and constructed in Honduras, to the trim specifications of Apolis. (You can expect a #menswear-friendly cut.) And to celebrate this week’s unveiling of the new shirts, they’re knocking 20% off the going rate.
It’ll be the most versatile thing in your weekender bag.
To add to the stellar midseason sale-ing happening right now, Brooks Brothers just kicked off a friends & family sale—that’s 25% off your total (enter FNFBB3 at checkout) applicable to all of their stock (save for made-to-measure), including items already on sale. Now might be the right time to stock up for the upcoming summer wedding season with something from the collaboration with Social Primer or clambake season with this slim-fit oxford fun shirt, or to pounce on anything you’ve been eyeing lately.
It’s the cardinal rule of blog style: everything’s cooler in Japan.
So we’re glad to see one of their premiere brands finally make the leap. For the last few years, Beams+ has been one of the better reasons to visit Tokyo, but SF’s Unionmade has managed to smuggle some of their best stuff into stateside ecommerce. Our favorites so far are this jersey blazer, this overdyed plaid oxford shirt, and this paisley tie, but there's plenty more where that came from.
And while it's a little pricey, think of all the money you're saving on airfare.
We’re still cruising through high summer, but when the Hamilton 1883 lookbook popped into our inbox, it gave us our first tinge of Fall excitement. And, aside from the much-buzzed camouflage city shirt, we saw a couple more offerings that warrant a second look.
Rachel Comey has been a favorite of well-curated boutiques for some years now—especially Brooklyn standby Hollander & Lexer—but somehow she’s never gotten the name recognition she deserves. It’s a shame because, as you can see, she makes quite an oxford.
This pair, dubbed Uncle Dan Oxfords, are cobbled together from felt, placing them somewhere between a plimsoll and a flashier suede version. More importantly, it’s more or less guaranteed to be the only forest green item in your shoe collection, which should come in particularly handy the next time you decide to bust out that khaki suit.
Skimming through the latest batch of Land’s End Canvas gear, we came across this green button-down and heather hoodie combination. It’s practically the opposite pole of the menswear spectrum, but it’s the same effect as the colorful belts you see circulating at Pitti Uomo.
Just a reminder: you don’t have to be an Italian dandy to pull off a pop of color.
