Our friend Roderick Tung has come a long way with his brand since we first met some time ago. He recently shared his vision and passion for men’s shirting. We own a shirt ourselves and wear it proudly. We’re fans of the short barrel cuff and the fun collars. Jacquard weaves, extra wide french cuffs, contrast collars, and silky fabrics make up some of the luxurious options. This isn’t your standard business shirt. But then again who wants to be just standard? If you like what you see be sure to stop by if you’re in LA or check out the collection online.
Of course, we’re just as sad as anyone that the last official weekend of summer has just come and gone. But as we tear our eyes away from the calendar and hazard a look at our closets, we realize we’ve got other things to worry about— namely, what we’re going to wear when the temperature starts to drop. Thankfully, we’ve come across one very handy rule of thumb for dressing for fall— think tactile. As bright colors and loud patterns fade into the background, it’s time to swap them out for a variety of chunky textures and warm fabrics. A five-star starting point? This corduroy button-down from Shipley & Halmos. The hefty texture and rich tortoise buttons make navy look almost regal—a nice departure from the almost clinical navies of summer’s polos—and load it up with an inviting warmth. When it comes right down to it, warmth is what you’re going to be searching for as the seasons change… but in the meantime, it doens’t hurt to look good, either. Get it here.
