|Remember telephones without caller ID? This series is meant to prompt a bit of curiosity, discovery and excitement. Like our old friend, the landline. A new shirt in focus every Monday to start your week off on the right foot.|
Meet our Alibi, a luxurious shirt inspired by gentlemen in Washington DC invested in fostering mutual improvement, education, and enlightenment.
What’s unique about this shirt?
Steeped in the ambitious history of senators and diplomats, the Alibi features our tall point collar, mother-of-pearl buttons, and a luxurious 120s poplin fabric for a silky-smooth feel. It’s lavender and white stripes pattern supplies the unexpected variety every modern gentleman’s closet needs.
Why should I care?
A few reasons, really: These gentle colors bring out the best in nearly any complexion. And, our classic tall-point collar is probably our most traditional collar, and often thought of as a more American collar, which brings an instant touch of sophistication to any outfit. It has a narrower distance between the two collar points and when buttoned, a smaller enclosure for a tie knot. As a result, it’s great buttoned up with a tie, making this a wonderful, silky-smooth shirt for summer weddings, the work week, and beyond.
How should I wear it?
While you’re probably used to whites and blues, purples may seem intimidating – but they shouldn’t be! Nearly everything can easily match with lavender, from black to green and surprisingly, orange. Pair this shirt with khakis for a more casual look, or charcoal slacks to keep it more formal. You could also mix and match with some brown layers, such as a dark chocolate vest and a khaki blazer.
When should I wear it?
Showcasing a smart lavender and white stripes pattern, our Alibi will help you look your best no matter the occasion: whether you’re presenting for a captivated audience or celebrating success with after-work drinks.
