Man About Town
Founded by a small group of shirt lovers, the team spent over a year sourcing weavers in Italy and Japan, the best mother-of-pearl buttons and even a factory that hand-makes the shirt boxes.The process of coming up with the right fit was equally ardent.
“We basically nerded out,”
says Joel Urwitz, one of the founders. “Hundreds of samples and patterns to get the fit right. Like a lot of men I know, I wear a shirt every day and the goal was to create a shirt we wanted but could not find.”
Others that stood out at MAN this season included DDUGOFF, who had its premiere showing at MAN. Created by Daniel DuGoff with a past from Patrik Ervell and Marc by Marc Jacobs, the collection’s “unbasic basics” takes essentials like t-shirts, sweatpants, and sweatshirts and make them special using fine fabrics and bold patterns.
