The Everyday Button-Down
No more starch-fried button-downs. No more chaffed neck.
Now is the time for loose and unencumbered but somehow slimming, for casual and dressy, for a European look and feel.
Jersey knit is not appropriate for all things. Certainly not for parachutes or raincoats or black-tie events. But for nearly everything else, and certainly for something that touches your skin for many hours of the day, it is deliciously appropriate.
You will not just decline to wear an undershirt with this; you may actually burn them all. You will look at your thin, crinkled white and black button-downs in the closet the way an Italian looks at orange macaroni and cheese—with utter disdain.
Wear it to work.
Wear it to play.
Wear it to dinner.
You can wear it to bed and be comfortable (which is why we offer more than one color).
