Fawn and Minty Dog Pocket Cocktail

Fawn

The Pocket Cocktail
In this series, we pair one of our new print pocket squares with a delicious cocktail. One starts a conversation, the other keeps it going.

::

Minty Dog

[inspired by our Fawn pocket square]

1.5 oz grapefruit juice
1.5 oz gin
mint sugar

::

This cocktail is a classic Salty Dog with a peppermint twist. Moisten the rim of your glass with some grapefruit juice. Turn the glass over and press it into a small dish of mint sugar (mix fresh mint leaves and sugar in a food processor or bowl) to coat the rim. Shake juice and gin in a shaker, and then strain into the glass.

Giving Tuesday Martha's Table

Give a Shirt Today and Every Day

You may have stocked up on fitted shirts during our Black Friday Sale, but that doesn’t mean your old shirts should go to waste. We believe in responsible consumption, and in the spirit of Giving Tuesday, we want to remind you of our clothing donation program with Martha’s Table.

Instead of exiling your old dress shirts to the back of your closet, bring them to us. We’ll give you 10% off your next order (includes all full-priced shirts except Classics) and donate the shirts on your behalf to Martha’s Outfitters, where they’ll find a new home with someone who can really use them.

There’s no limit to the number of times you can donate shirts, and we offer the discount year-round.

Not in DC? No problem! Simply send us a picture of you donating your old shirts to the local charity of your choice to service@hughandcrye.com.

::

We hope you join us in helping Martha’s Table and other local charities today and every day. And of course, whether Hugh & Crye shirts are involved or not, we encourage you to visit (and donate to) Martha’s Table, at 2114 14th Street NW, Washington DC.

Slim Fit Cotton Casual Blazer

Casual Cotton Blazers

We’re excited to introduce the new Casual Blazer Collection—our first series of cotton blazers in six colorways. Inspired by the nature and history of rural Maryland, the Seneca blazer features a simple, unlined design, rounded patch pockets, and working surgeon’s cuffs.

Made from 100% brushed cotton, the Seneca undergoes a special garment-dye wash that gives it a soft, muted tone. The end result is a blazer that feels like your favorite worn-in sweatshirt, and fits like a tailored suit jacket.

We paired our Casual Blazers with our OCBDs for this editorial photo shoot in Poolesville, a small town in rural Maryland near Seneca Creek.

Engagement.young6348

An Alaska Engagement

We’re humbled whenever a customer chooses to wear H&C for the special moments in his life. Recently we received a set of engagement photos from Tamar and his fiancé Ashley featuring our McComb Blazer in slate. Shot in a stand of birch trees just north of Fairbanks, AK, the photos are a unique spin on the typical portraits couples take. “We both work outdoors and liked the idea of a more formal dress and lighting but in a natural environment,” said Tamar.

Why Hugh & Crye? “H&C is a great company because they make and sell a great product, but more than that, H&C is young, engaged, and responsive; which makes it a pleasure to support them with my business. Their fit is spot on which is especially nice if you’re not interested in taking your new shirt to the tailor.”

Thank you for the kind words! And congratulations on your engagement.
