Fall 2012 Dress Shirts
Luxury, variety, creativity and of course value — we’ve got it all in our dress shirt collection for Fall 2012. Hear our Dress Shirt buyer Michael Contreras about what’s new.

It includes one of our most popular shirts, now with French cuffs, and I’m really excited about these great transitional pieces from summer to fall. For those who want something brighter, we put together a blue/orange collection.
In our technology accelerated age, bombarded with endless emails and text messages that seem to demand instant response, it’s nice that technology has also saved us precious minutes through the invention of non-iron shirts.

Michael: Every dress shirt developed for the collection is primarily inspired by a combination of history and trend. History is all about what customers really liked the previous year. So since we’re talking about Spring 2012 today, I looked at what our guy was loving in Spring 2011 and isolated the elements that made them so overwhelmingly appealing. I then
Spring is always, well, spring like, but if you’re lucky each year brings something new and unexpected into your life. That certainly goes for us, as each spring season we get equally excited about putting fresh twists on old classics as well as unveiling new surprises. Here are some highlights of the Paul Fredrick Spring 2012 Collection.
Details continue to be a big focus for us, and perhaps nowhere is this more apparent than in our latest crop of dress shirts. For starters, we were dazzled on a buying trip to London by pleat detailing down the front of dress shirts, which we thought made the shirts look terrific with a… Continue>>
