New England Shirt Co., Four Ways

To better utilize the arrival of several new button downs from New England Shirt Co., our Creative Director, Alex Maier, pulled together four distinct looks—from the businessman’s contrast collar to the casual man’s overdyed oxford. Shop in stores and online.

Office Ready

Contrast collars aren’t exclusively for the 1%. Bare your inner banker by sporting our chambray version with an L.B.M. 1911 Crepe Wool suit and a pair of suede chukkas. Finished with a Filson briefcase and a NATO strap watch, all you have to do is remember your ABCs. ALWAYS BE CLOSING.

Enlightened Weekends

This outfit will have you ready for your weekend strolls through the MCA. A spread collar oxford paired with a linen sportcoat and chambray trousers. Remember: “It’s not pink, it’s brick.” Brown leathers on the watch and shoes will help you blend right in with the cultural setting. No, you’re not a professor, but that doesn’t mean you can’t dress like one. The finishing touch? A vintage 35mm camera.

Urban Warrior

Late night meeting at the 24-hour coffee shop? Try an overdyed oxford button in steel blue, paired with a chunky cardigan from RRL and olive green cargos from Baldwin. Add an A4 case from Briefing to carry the essentials, plus some tough-yet-refined scotch grain leather shoes from Alden. Everything you need to meet that last-minute deadline. Say ‘utilitarian.’ Better yet, don’t say it. Your outfit will say it for you.

Lazy Saturday, Sunday, Monday, etc.

Lounging? We thought so. Keep it casual with the overdyed oxford in green. Throw on a crewneck sweatshirt from Todd snyder, and some denim from Baldwin. Add some light reading and maybe a bottle of beer from our recommended list. Last item? Set your phone to airplane mode. Cheers.
