The Dogs of Menswear
Shipley & Halmos’ new e-commerce site went live this morning, with a familiar crop of fall/winter gear and a few clever quirks. For instance, apparently they’re getting into the dog business.
Leading off the one-of-a-kind Things section was Momo, bearing the inscription, “comes in usually groups of 4-6, ‘Dog’ is a wonderful edition to any home.” Which, true enough.
Our sources confirm that Sam & Jeff are both dog owners, but this particular gentleman belongs to the site photographer, who brought his one-of-a-kind assistant along for the shoot, and ended up inspiring some offbeat commerce. $18,095 seems a little steep…but we have to think he’s worth it.
