Startup shirtmaker Michael Spencer, the dream of founder Spencer Bennett, continues to grow and has added a number of new summer shirtings. Yes, it’s fun to actually use the word “shirtings” correctly.
A variety of seersuckers and poplins are now available. “We are extremely excited about the new fabrics that have been added to the portfolio,” says Bennett. “I love the versatility offered by poplin, which can be worn equally well in formal or casual settings. A striped poplin shirt with a spread collar and French cuffs goes well in the most formal of business settings, while the same fabric styled as a popover, with short sleeves and a flapped pocket, will be welled received at the next neighborhood barbecue. It is truly a fabric that is appropriate for all occasions.”
And fear not, those of you who consider oxford cloth a year-round fabric, there are new choices here as well, including a new pink, blue candy stripe, and blue solid. Check out the full range of oxfords here. — CC
