Here at Paul Fredrick, we’re proud to provide our customer with styles that are truly one-of-a-kind. You won’t see these styles anywhere else, since all of our clothing is designed, produced, and sold exclusively to you through our website and our catalog. The subject of this post, silk-trimmed dress shirts, is just another example of our commitment to distinction.
Our silk trim collection is unique because the trim is made from 100% pure silk. Our Dress Shirt Buyer, Michael, explains why this is so difficult to find: “This type of detail is a rarity in the market due to the expense of the silk and the extra care it takes to cut and sew as trim detail on the shirt.” Additionally, stores generally price this style quite high because of that increased cost; we don’t! At Paul Fredrick, our aim is to offer you a twist on the normal professional wardrobe, all for an affordable price, and this particular style exemplifies that goal.
Throughout our seasonal collections we offer dress shirts with cotton contrast trim inside the neckband, front placket, and cuffs. These contrast trim details add a little extra interest to the dress shirt and can be an exciting reveal when the cuffs or collar buttons are undone. We feel that using silk for trim instead of the usual cotton material gives these styles even more of a sense of luxury. According to Michael, “the lustre, pattern, and color definition inherent to silk fabric makes the dress shirt distinctive and unique.”
For Holiday 2016, our silk-trim dress shirts include some more traditional designs, like black and white houndstooth and a red tartan plaid, and some that are exceptionally festive, like a cheerful Christmas tree theme and our white and blue snowflake model. They would make a very special gift for any man, or you might want to stock up for your own closet! Regardless of whom you purchase them for, you can be confident that you’re getting great style at a superb value.
