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.
It’s safe to say that the floral shirt is having a moment.
We’ve been seeing them pop up everywhere lately—even in our spring must-haves. But like any loud pattern, there’s a fine line between looking stylish and looking like your great-aunt’s couch. Luckily, we’ve put together this comprehensive guide…
You really get the feeling that spring has nearly sprung when the vibrantly printed shirts begin popping up everywhere online—including our newly minted must-haves.
And this year, our favorite shirtmakers have been getting even more adventurous with the prints: florals in every magnification, historical vignettes, newspaper comics… things are getting pretty far out there. So, naturally, we rounded up the finest specimens for your consideration.

Of course, now you remember.
And since you’re probably still working on at least one gift for that special someone on your list, we thought it prudent to alert you to the fact that they’re knocking $20 off their excellent built-to-fit shirts for fittings between now and the end of January. (Which reminds us: they’ve got gift cards, too.)
And yes: it’s okay if that someone special is you.
We’re of the mind that every shirt—not just the stuff headed for the boardroom—could benefit from the custom treatment.
