B: Mizzen + Main is one of those relatively new men’s clothiers that you wish were founded long ago. Their story of innovation out of a necessity for a cooling, wrinkle free, iron free, masculine shirt should be listened to by all clothing companies for men.
Katherine was introduced to this company from family friends who could not stop speaking of the great aspects of Mizzen + Main’s fabric breathability and durability. I was shown their website and was drawn to several shirt styles and patterns. I do not know how to describe the performance fabric that Mizzen + Main utilizes other than it’s out of this world. The performance fabric is soft beyond compare, slick, cool to the touch, and literally wrinkle resistant. I even tried wadding it up and creating creases to no avail. This shirt had me hooked.
Fall in Denver came around, and Katherine and I ventured the streets with my Mizzen & Main shirt keeping me comfy and stylish. The cool Colorado morning turned into a sweltering afternoon, all while the Mizzen & Main shirt allowed a slight breeze to pass right through, keeping me cool and sweat-free.
Funny enough, the first actual advertisement of Mizzen + Main that I witnessed was in the window of a retail store in Downtown Denver. I was happy to see the advertisement because this is definitely a shirt needed by all men and I promise you will love it because it doubles on many fronts ranging from work wear, to weekend wear, or a night on the town, or even an afternoon out in the field hunting.
K: I knew that this shirt was a big deal for me too once I found out it was essentially a wrinkle free dress shirt. I’m terrible at ironing (a skill that I’m convinced is a lost art), and when I have to iron one of Brandon’s shirts, I feel as though I can never get it quite right. Mizzen and Main must’ve sympathized with me on this and we definitely put their claim to the test when we forgot about clothes in the dryer for two days (please don’t judge us). To our surprise, when everything else was a wrinkled mess, Brandon’s Mizzen and Main shirt was perfectly in tact and wrinkle free. Ladies, I’m telling you this right now: your husband needs this shirt. Order it now, save it for Christmas and I promise, you’ll both be happy.
B: For those cool nights out, an undershirt or a simple coat would be recommended with this lightweight fabric. Conversely, warm days would be great with rolled up sleeves and a few buttons let loose on this shirt. Thankfully Mizzen + Main have a large selection of colors and patterns to choose from, literally allowing every discerning man to choose his favorite pairing of color and style.
The company has just released their new winter line and I’m especially loving the new pullover styles and their Henley tees. But the next thing to be added to my cart? The James light pink gingham dress shirt. Despite it’s pastel color, I am picturing this layered underneath fall and winter pullovers and jackets. These would make for an excellent Christmas gift for the man in your life. The beauty is that it works for all ages and all types of guy; I feel confident in saying their designs are truly timeless.
