What’s new this season? Well, just about everything…
No worries, we’ve still got our well appointed collection of classic business essentials, but our new collection of dress shirts, ties, shoes and more has got us all excited here at Paul Fredrick. So rather than waiting for things to warm up outside, we’ve got Spring in full swing right now. Check out our fresh assortment of polished choices and gear up for a new season right around the corner. It somehow makes the temperature outside feel just a little less cold.
DRESS SHIRTS & TIES
Here we prefer to put our money where out mouth is. Our half century dress shirt legacy speaks for itself, all stitched into over 175 new style and pattern choices to fit every… Continue>>
Somewhere along the sartorial timeline, hordes of men became convinced that blue and grey were the only acceptable colors for suits. If you’re reading this, odds are you’re not stuck in that narrow mindset. Still, we’d like to encourage those whose suit wardrobes are a bit basic to consider broadening their horizons, as well as assuage those who embrace color and pattern that we’ve got you covered. This fall our campaign against the ordinary includes earth tones such as chocolate brown and olive. We’ve given brown a shot of elegance and formality by rendering it in a double-breasted pinstripe model, as well as a single-breasted version with subtle lavender stripes.
Brown also shows up in our country-gent inspired sport… Continue>>
As the sweltering summer continues, we bring you a new collection of shirts and ties, helping us remember that the crisp fall air will be here before we know it. With these new offerings we have everything you could want from textured shirting fabrics to rich patterns and colors to pair with your favorite autumn suits and jackets; fall is when we re-embrace the sophisticated complexity of the well rounded wardrobe.
We’re always refining our merchandise based on what most resonates with our customer, and most of you guys are asking for more variety in the non-iron department. Our pickins have never been slim, but this season we’ve harvested a non-iron bounty you surely won’t find at any of our competitors. … Continue>>
When Nick Carraway tells Jay Gatsby he can’t repeat the past, the doomed idealist insists “Of course you can!”
That exchange, direct from F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel, is drawn out for even more dramatic effect in Baz Luhrmann’s new glitz-loaded adaptation, which opened May 10. And how appropriate, as we’re in total agreement with the Gatz: When you see the sartorial splendor of the film, which is set in 1922 New York, you too will want to repeat the past.
When it comes to natural fibers, there are really only a handful of options. But when you blend them together, you create entirely new hybrids that combine the best of both worlds, and the result is often more distinctive—or even more practical—than the more typical purebred varieties.
Take wool, now and forever the king of suit fabrics. But there’s a flipside to wool: Its ubiquity can also make it the anonymous pawn of suit fabrics, making you just another working-stiff in his worsted uniform. But blend wool with silk and suddenly you’ve got a fabric that’s anything but ordinary, wonderfully textured and with lightness and visual interest that are perfect for summer… Continue>>
With today’s high-tech lightweight wools, you can wear the same suit for most of the year and still be comfortable. But that doesn’t mean you have to look the same, as your shirts, ties and other accessories can express the changing seasons through the use of color.
And at no other time is that more fun than in summer, when all the bright shades that first dawned in spring get amped up even more, and fun fabrics like madras and seersucker take their place in the sun.
Not only does season-specific color sharpen your look, it’s also a budget-conscious… Continue>>
