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.
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...

Perhaps the lingering effects of America’s birthday have kicked the heritage-centric sale-ing into high gear, because today we’ve got news that SF’s Unionmade has knocked 40% off a good chunk of their stock, including Tellason jeans in a summery white (and weight), a mind-blowing amount of Gitman Vintage and the lowest numbers you’ll find tacked to Barbour jackets this side of the pond. Do it for Americana.
Deep within the Ralph Lauren empire, past all the preppy swathes of piqué and tweed, lies its heart and soul: the RRL line. (An Americana-glorifying assortment of jeans, shirts, bags and saddles that feels how that iconic snap of Mr. Lauren wearing denim on denim looks.)
It’s hard enough finding the stuff online (most shops agree to carry the collection in-house only), but we’ve stumbled upon something even more rare: Seattle’s Blackbird is quietly moving some stock out the door at 30% to 50% off. Naturally, it’s not online, so you’re in luck if you happen to be in the Pacific Northwest this weekend, but those of us not in town can give Blackbird a ring to see what they’ve got in stock (and hope that includes your size). A little extra legwork is the American way.
