There are weekend clothes that can be enjoyed every day. We offer handsome sport coats that can be enjoyed with a tailored shirt and fine necktie; or paired more casually with a sweater and an open collared shirt. As usual, wonderful, yet subtle, color, as well as uncompromising quality, timeless style and exceptional value, is the mark of our collection of balanced, proportioned and comfortable clothing; all brought to you by our experienced, knowledgeable and caring staff. We send you this preview catalog to give you an early taste of the fall, enabling you to enjoy planning ahead. Early orders will be the first to be produced in order to accommodate our valued patrons. Please keep in mind that our European mills and cutting rooms are still feeling the impact of the past three years, so we urge you to order as early as you can, and to be as patient as possible. Many of the finest mills continue to have reduced working staff and hours, and are late in production, so that it is still not unusual for delays in receiving fabric for cutting. We also look forward to your visit to Charleston (ranked #1 city to visit by Travel & Leisure magazine) and your visit to our handsome shop, which remains a mecca of tasteful and timeless apparel and accessories. Until then, turn the page to discover the best of sophisticated and classic style, and visit us online for our full collection, including formal attire, regimental neckwear, and toiletries.
