Weekly Edition: Spring Plaid Hydes + Limited Issue Chinos

When it comes to playing with spring colors, there is a fine line between sophisticated and sophomoric. The former is confidently understated while the latter hops forward a bit too strong ... like a certain bunny.

We wanted to design a collection that was playful enough for warmer weather but confident and versatile enough to wear all year. If you can have it all, why not?

The shirting fabrics were a natural candidate for our Hyde - our slightly more refined, semi-spread collar style. As summer often sneakily piles one dressier occasion after another onto your plate, it's great to have a shirt with some color that you can wear to to nicer dinners tucked and ironed one night and around town rolled and wrinkled the next day.

The same goes with our chinos. Sure dandy pastel pants have their time and place, but we'd rather put our name behind a soft sturdy pair of pants in a handsome shade of blue that looks great on the beach in both July and late September.

No matter what our intentions may be, we are confident all three of these pieces will play nicely with all the other pieces you own and even teach them a thing or two about versatility.
