Press: PRIME Living Sep/Oct ’14

Monday, September 22, 2014

As many of you know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and to help support the cause, PRIME Living curated a list of products whose proceeds go to help researchers find a cure. We are very proud to have our pink Lyle Lovett western shirt included in their collection!

Since launching our inaugural line of Lyle Lovett western shirts last year, we have designated the proceeds from each solid pink oxford as a charitable donation to M.D. Anderson’s cancer research center here in Houston.

Take a look at PRIME Living feature below and visit them online to see even more products that give back to cancer research. In the meantime, you can also learn more about M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, Living Beyond Breast Cancer, The Susan G. Komen Foundation for the Cure, and a variety of other incredible organizations that are working to find a cure.

For those of you who aren’t yet familiar with Man of the World, it is an incredible style, travel, food, art, and culture editorial and online boutique that has gained a well-deserved following since launching in 2012. Celebrating their two-year anniversary, they released a special issue of their quarterly magazine featuring an even more impressive collection of articles, interviews and inspiration.

We are very excited to have been included in this more recent issue for a collaborative photo-essay by photographer Ben Weller and stylist Julie Ragolia investigating the “True West.” Take a look at our new buffalo check and brushed twill shirts below! And also be sure to grab your copy of the special Man of the World anniversary issue (No. 9).

Vacation Finds: Our New Favorite Houston Hangouts

Wednesday, August 20, 2014

One of our favorite aspects of Houston is that you don’t have to go far to stumble on something new and exciting. And now that we’re back in the workshop after our annual vacation, we can’t help but to reflect on some of the recent finds that we discovered around the city. If nothing else, consider them an excuse to step beyond your normal stomping grounds.

Mongoose v. Cobra

We’ve heard great things over the past several months about Mongoose v. Cobra and it still surpassed expectations. It’s a must for anyone who likes craft beer, fine spirits and incredible cocktails. With an open rustic-chic floor plan, the atmosphere is perfect for a relaxing drink after work (and a great place to linger past midnight). Mongoose v. Cobra also features a small, but well-curated food menu—the Brätwurst being a notable favorite. 1011 McGowen St., Houston, TX 77002  (713) 650-6872




Specializing in Indian-fusion, Indika has amassed a considerable reputation (around the city and across the country) for its unique dishes and flavor pairings. While you can’t go wrong ordering off of their standard menu, we particularly enjoy their “No-menu Wednesdays” where they experiment with different spices, ingredients and techniques to keep things interesting. 516 Westheimer Rd, Houston, TX 77006 – (713) 524-2170


Rice University Art Gallery

Tucked away in the Rice University campus, this unassuming gallery exhibits site-specific installations by world-renowned visual artists from Yayoi Kusama to El Anatsui. The Rice University Art Gallery itself is specific to installation art, meaning that you are fully immersed within the work(s) on display rather than simply approaching pieces hung on a wall. The current show (“Crossing the Farther Shore” by Vietnamese-American artist Dinh Q. Lê) is on view until
August 28th and is well worth experiencing before it comes down. 6100 Main St., Houston, Texas 77005

Closed: Hamilton Summer Vacation

Sunday, August 3, 2014

It’s that time of year when we leave the fabric where it is, turn off the sewing machines, and enjoy our annual (and much-beloved) two-week summer vacation. Our workshop will be closed from August 4th-17th, but we will be back to rev up for the coming season on Monday, August 18th!

See you soon.


Wallpaper* City Guide: Houston

Monday, July 28, 2014

Take a look at what they had to say about their visit to our workshop—and be sure to pick up a copy of the Houston City Guide here!



The Difference Between Made-to-Measure & Bespoke

Monday, July 21, 2014


We’ve recently received some questions about the differences between our Made-to-Measure and Bespoke shirts. At first glance, it can be somewhat difficult to wrap your head around, but the distinctions between the two are actually quite simple.

In the most basic sense, the difference lies in the degree of customization. Whereas our Bespoke service is essentially limitless in terms of designing a custom shirt, our Made-to-Measure offerings are crafted from a curated selection of our most popular styles and fabrics—many of which change with the seasons.


It’s worth nothing that both Bespoke and Made-to-Measure shirts are handmade to match your specific measurements. So visit us online, in our Houston workshop, or at one of our many retailers to determine your perfect fit. Please note however that our Bespoke shirts are only available in person with a retail specialist to guide you through every step of the process.

In the meantime, click here to learn more about our Bespoke and Made-to-Measure offerings.
