Believe it or not, Spring is here! Spring is all about experimentation and being playful with one’s style, and the colors we’ve brought you in the Spring ’17 Dress Shirt Collection are a true reflection of that fact.

You’ve likely seen us use the phrase “deep tones” in describing a dominant theme of our Fall Collection. But what exactly are deep tones, and why do we place so much emphasis on them in this particular season? Well, a deep tone is pretty much what it sounds like: the tone (or color) is deep (or dark); this is in comparison to other seasons when we have pastels, jewel tones, and other such groupings of colors. Some of the most popular and unique deep tones are plum, mulberry, sage, merlot, brown, olive, navy, indigo, and burgundy. We’ll take you through the Fall ’16 Collection and recommend a few of our top styles in deep tones.

Sage + Slate Blue
Sage and slate blue (sometimes substituted with light blue) is a color combination… Continue>>
You probably remember learning how our eyes work in biology class, but here’s a quick review of the science behind seeing color. The human eye has receptors that take in light and transmit this information to the brain, which then translates that light into colors. Upon receiving this data, the brain determines our reaction to these colors or color combinations. Incredibly, some colors have been found to physically affect our bodies, while others stir an emotional response within us. In considering one’s outfit, it is useful to know how the colors we wear affect us and those around us.
Did you know that viewing red has been… Continue>>
