A/W 13 Buying Trip | N.Y.C. Day 1

Wednesday February 20, 2013


New York City | N.Y.C.

After taking the red-eye from Vancouver on Cathay Pacific, we arrived into JFK at 6 am suffering from an acute lack of sleep, but after a long cab ride into Manhattan, a short nap at our hotel (the very pleasant and surprisingly inexpensive Pod 39 near Grand Central Station) and a couple of morning espressos we were ready for our first appointments of the season.



Gitman Bros. Vintage Shirt | N.Y.C.

As usual, there was a mix of classic button downs in solids and stripes and a wide range of prints taken from their vintage archives.  The standouts in the collection were a cotton oxford done in quilted blackwatch, a slubbed buffalo check with a pin dot overlay done in flannel and a cotton poplin mushroom print.

Happy with the selection of about 20 different shirts and an assortment of ties and pocket squares, we ended the day by doing a little retail reconnaissance with a late afternoon trip to Barney's NYC :)
