Traveler Shirt

The True Meaning of Traveler

Last year, Angie and Sean Holman did what many of us only daydream about: They quit their jobs and traveled the world. In order to keep their baggage light, they each brought just two shirts. Sean chose wisely and packed his Hugh & Crye Traveler shirt.

From Zimbabwe to India to Thailand, the shirt made its way around the world and back in one piece. It’s pretty incredible to see a shirt we designed to be the traveler’s faithful necessity truly serve its intended purpose.

“Even at the end of our trip it looked great. We just moved to California to start new jobs and he wore it on his first day,” said Angie. “I still can’t believe a shirt worn that much, washed in rivers and sinks all over the world, and squished into a backpack for a year, could stay looking so new.”

Check out Sean and Angie’s travel blog Where is Seangie? for more stories from their travels.

The Professionals Collection

We’re excited to announce the launch of our new Professionals Collection—a series of timeless dress shirts with understated patterns and semi-spread collars. In other words, shirts you wear to work.

Featuring subtle stripes and checks in a blue and white palette, the Professionals are refined yet friendly. You’re not Gordon Gekko. You’re a good dude who works hard and succeeds without having to compromise your integrity. These dress shirts were designed for you.

Named after the bustling streets of London, these shirts serve as a tribute to a city that epitomizes timeless style and tailored fit. Cut from 100% Egyptian cotton sourced from Italy, the Professionals feature back darts and the signature Hugh & Crye tapered cut for a fit that rivals custom.

H&C 10,000 Feet Under the Sea

Our shirts are worn in all 50 states and more than 50 countries worldwide. But we weren’t expecting one to be worn 10,000 feet under water.

Phil Torres is an entomologist and expert contributor on Al Jazeera America’s TechKnow. He’s also an H&C customer with some pretty incredible stories of adventure. Just last month, Phil reported live from 10,000 feet underwater in submarine Alvin wearing a Hugh & Crye Fitted T-Shirt. So now we can say our shirts have been two miles under water. Thanks, Phil!

Check out more photos from the dive below and on Phil’s Instagram.

Hugh & Crye Wedding

Eric & Sarah’s DC Wedding

We’re incredibly humbled whenever a guy chooses to wear Hugh & Crye, but especially so when it’s for his wedding day. H&C customer Eric and his now-wife Sarah recently got married at the Carnegie Institute for Science in the heart of D.C., followed by a photo shoot at Nationals Park. The groomsmen all happened to be wearing our Langdon shirt.

“We love D.C. so much and, despite the fact that we are both from elsewhere, this has really become our home. So we really wanted to showcase tons of local stuff for all of our out of town guests,” said Eric. “That meant flowers from Eastern Market, Green Hat Gin cocktails, and DC Brau beer. It also meant that we wanted the groomsmen outfitted in the best D.C. has to offer, and, obviously, that’s Hugh and Crye.”

Congratulations, Sarah and Eric!

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.
