This Holiday, we're excited to announce that we will be offering the largest number of styles we’ve ever had! For this particular post, we asked our Buyers to take a look at this huge assortment of new styles and pick just one favorite from their respective departments. Below we've listed a few of the team’s top picks:
We asked our Dress Shirt Buyer, Michael, to pick one shirt from the whopping 410 brand new styles for Holiday 2016. That pick is the 2-Ply Cotton Satin Stripe Spread Collar Dress Shirt
. He explains: “I love the rich tones of red and brown in this shirt, which are perfect for the Holiday season. The satin weaving in the red stripe also makes it pop! The added detail of brown buttons gives the shirt that extra bit of uniqueness.” With a pattern and colors that are very wearable yet supremely elegant as well, this dress shirt is sure to be a hit with our customers this season.
On a more casual note, we brought the same challenge to our Sportswear Buyer, Bethany. Her favorite style this season is the Non-Iron 100% Cotton Plaid Button Down Collar Sport Shirt
: “This shirt is one of our ‘holiday inspired’ styles that can be worn casually with our denim pants or dressed up underneath a sport coat with or without a tie.” This sport shirt is especially festive thanks to its plaid patterning in traditional holiday colors like green and red. All in all, it’s a thoroughly tasteful tribute to the season!
So, we’ve covered which shirts our Buyers think you should be wearing – what about pants? We asked our Tailored Clothing Buyer, Jess, to tell us which pant style was her top pick from the Holiday 2016 Collection. She chose the Italian Merino Wool Pleated Pants
, which she tells us have “a really wearable pattern (mini-houndstooth) and colors: black, light blue, brown, and green.” Our customers love our super-luxurious Italian collection, which now includes this Italian Merino style, and we expect to see that collection’s success continue throughout the season.
We asked our Accessory & Shoe Buyer, Allison, to pick one style from our newest collection. She told us her favorite item is the Paisley Woven Italian Cotton Corduroy Tie
. She says: “I love that we are offering a corduroy tie this holiday! The rich paisley pattern and texture of this 100% cotton tie make it a great choice to pair with a flannel suit or sport coat.” This unique tie is gold with a paisley pattern outlined in red and orange; it’s a laid back alternative to the styles of neckwear one would usually see. We especially enjoy the texture of the corduroy, since it fits right in with the multi-textural theme of this season’s collection.
Accessories matter, from top to bottom, so we asked our Buyer, Allison, to also pick out one shoe from the Holiday Collection. She chose the Keegan Cap Toe Lace Up Boot
, explaining: “Holiday is typically synonymous with cold weather (at least here in the Northeast), which makes it the season for boots! This lace up boot should be a staple in every man’s wardrobe. It can be dressed up or down and is perfect for those brisk winter days.” This exquisite Italian-made style is an excellent representation of our immensely seasonable, superbly polished Holiday ’16 Collection. These are just five of our favorites from the new Holiday 2016 Collection. Which styles are your
