Every so often, a man needs a new shirt. Paralyzed by the jungle-like savagery of the average mall, most men fall back on a few classic brands that we are familiar with – Banana Republic, J. Crew, Polo, etc.

While his style is infinitely more on-point, and his wardrobe impeccably tailored, the Italian man is no different. The only exception? He has a one-stop-shop for quality and style. Slowear has brought together an aggregation of Italian heritage brands (think Timex and Woolrich Woolen Mills on this side of the pond) under the Slowear label. Each company specializes in one aspect of your wardrobe – Incotex pants, Glanshirt shirting, etc – and is committed to creating the very best of that garment. We particularly like this madras from Glanshirt – slim fit in yarn-dyed cotton, with some understated details, like a placket that ends ¾ of the way down. A breezy summer button down that is tailored and classy, yet comfortable and perfect for wearing un-tucked. This is the kind of thing that gives Italians their impeccable sartorial reputation.
