In our technologically accelerated age, bombarded with endless emails and text messages that seem to demand instant response, it’s nice that to know that technology has also saved us precious minutes through the invention of non-iron shirts. Mornings are rushed enough without having to open an ironing board. And sending shirts to the cleaners costs money, in addition to being yet one more errand to run.
Non-iron dress shirts have become our biggest dress shirt category, so we thought we’d tell you a bit more about what makes them special (not to mention wildly popular). Great prices and a fit guarantee you likely already know, but what you probably don’t know is that our shirts are… Continue>>
Dress shirt collar styles are one of those topics that a certain kind of menswear pundit relishes taking on, telling you that you should match your collar to your facial structure. And so portly guys are advised to eschew rounded club collars, and skinny guys with gaunt features shouldn’t wear spread collars.
Nonsense. We strongly encourage you to wear any kind of collar you like. What’s more, we like diverse wardrobes, and encourage you to try every collar style we offer to add maximum variety to your work wardrobes.
Now there’s one rule (that’s really more of a guideline, to quote an old… Continue>>

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.

When it comes to business dress, suits are supposed to be your big investment and ties are your “personal statement.” That leaves dress shirts as one of the things boring dressers pay little attention to, never venturing beyond the safe boundary of blue and white, while stylish dressers relish choosing shirts with the same care they choose a handmade silk tie or rakish double-breasted suits in a Prince of Wales plaid.
And with dozens of colors and patterns to choose from, there’s no reason why selecting your shirts can’t be the most fun you get out of procuring your clothing from Paul Fredrick.
After color and pattern, a shirt’s most distinguishing mark is its… Continue>>
Contrast collar shirts are a throwback to a century ago, when men’s dress shirts came with detachable collars. Since men were usually squeezed into a vest and high-buttoning jacket for propriety’s sake, the collar was the most visible part of the shirt.
