|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 a shirt that goes the extra mile, just like you. We’re thrilled to introduce our Stevenson — a luxurious shirt inspired by impactful expressways in Chicago; those that have reshaped the region perhaps more than any other twentieth-century force. No matter where the road takes you this summer, you’ll want to bring this handsome pop of color along.
What’s unique about this shirt?
Influenced by the six-lane Stevenson Interstate built in 1964, this men’s dress shirt features a smart vertical purple, white, and blue stripes pattern. Its unique design details include our button down collar (not too big, not too small), our signature convertible cuffs, mother-of-pearl buttons, and a silky smooth 120s poplin fabric.
Why should I care?
Stripes are all the rage during the summer months! The Stevenson’s thin stripes convey a sense of business, while its bright color makes it versatile enough to wear all day long. Furthermore, since the time of ancient Greek civilization, purple has conveyed a sense of royalty.
How should I wear it?
Thin striped shirts are a perfect match for larger patterned ties or solid ties, including our District 3 in black. We recommend pairing this shirt with our Seneca blazer in charcoal or navy, in order to anchor the purple. And you can easily complete the look with some dark denim or dark tan khakis.
When should I wear it?
A natural fit for wearing around your urban playground during the workweek, or for a sunny Saturday rooftop get together with friends, the Stevenson showcases classic American style.
Explore the Stevenson today, and look and feel great when you hit the open road. Or get started by finding your custom fit. If you already own the Stevenson, take a photo when you wear it and tag #hughandcrye. We’ll randomly select a winner for a fun surprise.
