"What I think is the really dangerous approach is the ‘let’s be artistic’ attitude. I know that artistry just happens."

If I had the vineyard to match the threads I’d have no cares in the world!
Anonymous said: What do you suggest for a good white button down
This question is difficult to answer and depends on a few variables:
Do you plan on wearing it with a tie, do you prefer a trimmer or fuller cut, what is your budget like? I’m a sucker for being a complete clothing nerd, and as such, I spend more than necessary to get details in shirts that don’t matter to most folks. Also, when purchasing shirts I would spend more money on a blue shirt as opposed to white. White shirts are classic, timeless, beautiful and very flawed. All the oils a man’s neck secretes greatly affects the longevity of a white shirt and hence make them nearly disposable if worn frequently.
For that reason I would seek out a good shirt for a reasonable price, unless money is not an issue for you.
If you have the opportunity, there is nothing more rewarding than clothing made to your measurements wether its MTM or bespoke. For an off the rack option I like the look and value of Kamakura shirts although I have no personal experience with the product.
Hope this somewhat helps!

Our humble abode which goes by the name of “Gentlemen’s Corner” is located in Chapel Hill, NC. If you’re ever in the area please stop in to say hi!
Thanks for the kind words
