Now that you’ve had the opportunity to look through our Spring 2016 Collection, we want to take a moment to highlight a few things. We asked our Buyers to tell us which item from their respective categories they are most pleased with, and though it was no easy task, we now have four of their top picks for your consideration. Read on to find out what they have chosen, and why!
Our Dress Shirt Buyer, Michael, chose the 2-Ply Cotton Pinpoint Silk Trimmed Straight Collar Dress Shirt as his top pick from the Spring ’16 Dress Shirt Collection. It’s a solid white pinpoint oxford dress shirt with a delightful surprise – unbutton the collar and cuffs to see a 100% silk trim in a grand piano design. Michael explains why it’s so special: “One, it is very rare to find a dress shirt out there trimmed with 100% pure silk. Two, since I am a music lover/performer, I love the grand piano design on the silk. It’s a perfect, basic white shirt to wear to work buttoned up with a tie. Then at night I can remove the tie, open the shirt, and roll up my sleeves to reveal the piano pattern that not only looks good but speaks to my interests.” Music-themed items have proven to be very successful in the past, and we think this dress shirt will be no different.
We asked our Accessories Buyer, Allison, what her favorite item is from this season’s collection. Her pick is the Paisley Woven Italian Silk Tie, which has already become a hit with our customers. She says, “I love this tie because of its vibrant color and great satin sheen. The silvery grey ground really pops when paired with a crisp white shirt and pearl grey or charcoal suit!” Made in Italy from 100% silk, this tie features a harmoniously toned paisley pattern that almost resembles flowers, which incidentally makes it perfect for Spring. Thanks to its elegant appearance, it’s the perfect finishing touch for any number of outfits.
Our Tailored Clothing Buyer, Jess, told us that her favorite item from the Spring 2016 Collection is the Multi-color Windowpane Pure Wool Sport Coat. She points to how versatile it is, essentially because “this really tonal and elegant grey style is so classic and easy to wear. Windowpane patterns make stepping out in a patterned sport coat stress-free even for that customer who is nervous about patterns. Whether you pull out the windowpane color to match with your dress shirt and tie, or use a ‘pop’ color in a sweater underneath, you have so many options.” Weighted so you can wear it through multiple seasons, this sport coat provides the smart benefits of business-staple wool.
Our Sportswear Buyer, Alex, told us that her top pick from this season’s collection is the 100% Cotton Paisley Hidden Button Down Collar Sport Shirt. This vibrant option might not appeal to everyone’s senses, but needless to say it’s a shirt that stands out, and that’s an asset! She explains, “I love the fun print and bright colors of this shirt. It also pairs great with our pima cotton sweaters.” You’re bound to find a color and a style you like in our popular Pima Cotton Sweater collection, so why not match it back to this sport shirt? Casual dress codes allow for more fashion risk-taking, so take the leap.
