Shipley & Halmos
February 04, 2013 New York
Still, it all builds. "A lot of unrelated items that look really great together," was how the designers summed it up. "But when you do it right, it looks like a stylish guy's closet." There weren't seismic shocks to be found. Varsity jackets do well for Team S&H, so they came back again, here joined by a raglan-sleeve varsity sweater. The peacoat now comes with a shearling collar: a bit of a leap for their customer, Shipley admitted, but they're counseling slow and steady progress—and besides that, it's removable.
Limiting options might've been risky, but the designers reported retailers responded better than ever. So the bag stays packed, and the journey continues.
