Linen: A Natural For Warm Weather Men’s Clothing

Think of linen as the rebel of the fabric family. In an age when men have wholeheartedly embraced the convenience of non-iron shirts and trousers, linen stubbornly remains its crinkly, wrinkly self. Of course, that’s part of its charm.

5 Must Have Men’s Clothing Pieces for Spring

From the office to the clubhouse, workweek to weekend, here are the top five must-haves from our spring collection:

1. Our newest pinpoint oxford dress shirts combine fresh seasonal color with non-iron performance. Stay crisp and wrinkle free while vacationing from the daily humdrum of white and blue solids (though we’ve got those too) with colors like salmon, purple and orange bengal stripe. The buttondown collar looks neat with a tie or without.
