Ever wonder what they were thinking? Check out what our design team’s personal favorites are for Spring.
When you hear “Sharkskin,” it likely conjures up iconic imagery from its heyday in the 1960’s, when it was the favorite of cool characters like the Rat Pack and even Elvis.

Sharkskin is one of our featured Spring 2017 fabrics, and this season we’re offering some truly special styles, like our brand new luxury Sharkskin suit separates and our ever-popular Sharkskin pants. First, however, a brief primer!

You’ve packed your clothing carefully into your suitcase; you finally arrive at your hotel, only to discover everything has wrinkled. Don’t let this happen to you! Instead, follow our instructions to keep your clothes as neat and smart as they were the moment you packed them.
