  • A standard placket is more casual than a seamless placket. You’ll see a standard placket with most casual fabrics, collars and cuffs. A seamless placket is reserved for a French cuff shirt, or a shirt that has a dressier feel.

Q. Pockets or no pockets?
  • Pockets can be a great addition to a shirt; it can also be a huge deterrent.
  • Generally speaking, if the dressier a shirt, the less likely it will have a pocket. Pockets are a great option for casual oxfords, flannels or plaids. They often add some dimension and character to a casual shirt, and most importantly functionality!
  • Pockets on a formal shirt are a bit passé. We would never recommend a pocket on a French cuff shirt, or with a widespread collar.

Q. How do I clean my shirts?
  • Wash your shirts in warm/cold water on a normal or delicate cycle.
  • If your shirts have a button down collar, make sure to unbutton the collar.
  • If your shirts have a button down collar, make sure to unbutton the collar. We prefer hang drying our shirts. It adds to the longevity of the shirt, and helps the shirts stay true to size.
  • If you opted for a non-iron/easy care shirt you can hang dry your shirt, or place it in the dryer until it is damp. When damp, hang the shirt up and let it hang dry.
  • If you prefer machine drying, that’s fine!

Q. How do I clean my chinos?
  • Wash your chinos in cold water on a normal or delicate cycle.
  • Much like shirts, we prefer hang drying our chinos. It adds to the longevity of the chinos and helps the chinos stay true to size.
