Shirt Box 1 2019

BLUE CROSSES  We saw this unique fabric and knew it’d be a fun addition to this box. The small navy crosses on a white background make for a shirt that can be worn with denim or even under a dark suit in the evenings. The blue buttons bring color when worn without a necktie.  LIGHT BLUE DOUBLE WINDOWPANE  The perfect business casual dress shirt in a classic color that goes with everything, but a unique pattern that’s not too loud. Wear this with khaki chinos, 5-pocket corduroys, and dress trousers. Or dress it up under a grey suit.  GREY HOUNDSTOOTH  It’s not too often wen find grey dress shirts that have something different about them in the weave. But we really like this houndstooth weave that gives great visual interest and has a nice hand feel. It works well with charcoal trousers and suits, and as an alternative color for under a navy jacket.

Now available: Neapolitan-style unstructured jersey blazers and jackets

Navy flannel stretch cotton jersey unconstructed blazer. Looks like a sport coat, wears like your favorite sweater.

Navy flannel stretch cotton jersey unconstructed blazer. Looks like a sport coat, wears like your favorite sweater.

Announcing our Neapolitan-style blazers that give you the ultimate comfort and ease. Feeling more like a favorite sweater with a tailored look, these jackets combine innovative stretch fabrics with a deconstructed shoulder and chest.

First, the fabric: a stretch cotton jersey from the Dondi mill in Italy, which specialized in these fabrics since 1970. This fabric’s unique properties are heavier and drape extremely well while also stretching with your body and feel soft to the touch. Two options are available: a thick navy jersey built for winter (above image) and a mid-blue honeycomb weave perfect for year-round (below images).

Next, because the fabric drapes so well, we’ve been able to remove the canvasing in the chest and the padding in the shoulders. This makes it feel more like a heavy knit instead of a traditional suit jacket. There’s zero “break in” period for the jacket to mould to your body.

Finally, we can offer unlined construction with finished interior seams. This lightens the jacket further, with bemberg lining applied only to the upper shoulder and sleeves. The interior panels are self-faced with beautiful interior seams, which is more time consuming and harder to make than a traditionally fully-lined suit. Combine with open patch front pockets to match the casual style and leave the interior clean.

We consider these “sweater blazers” to be a perfect travel companion as you’re able to roll them up into an overhead compartment on a plane or into your luggage. A perfect jacket that goes easily with denim, chinos and trousers and always looks professional and polished.

Now available for order and priced at only $1050.
