Mott & Bow's New Shirt Is Made With Fabric From a 187-Year-Old Mill

Mott & Bow's New Shirt Is Made With Fabric From a 187-Year-Old Mill

To make the best shirt you need the best fabric. That’s why Mott & Bow turned to Albiate, a famous Italian mill that’s been in operation since 1830. The 100% cotton fabric they sourced for their slim button-down makes it light and ideal for summer and fall. It’s what the weather calls for. Cut to be worn tucked or untucked, it’s a dress shirt that moves beyond the office, allowing you to look sharp wherever your day takes you. And since Mott & Bow only stocks six staple colors, they can keep the price down, meaning neither you nor your bank account will be sweating.

Wear This: Summer Nights

Wear This: Summer Nights

Summer nights are for kicking back on the porch and letting the grill cool down while you enjoy a cold beverage and some R & R. Such an occasion calls for an exceedingly comfortable outfit, but one that still looks on point in case any last minute plans come up. It all starts with the most important layer—your underwear. For that you’d be wise to snag a pair of CDLP’s Boxer Trunk. Why? Well, since each pair is made from Lyocell—an ecological wood pulp that’s refined to an insane level of softness and durability—they’ll quickly become your favorite pair of underwear. Seriously. They’re softer than silk and odor resistant. Throw on a pair and cover yourself up with Faherty’s Stretch Chino Short and one of Save Khaki’s henleys. Keep a Reigning Champ Terry Hoodie on hand in case temps dip after the sun goes down and don’t forget some chill tracks to help you unwind. Life doesn’t get much better.
