Editor Obsessions: Tome’s Charitable White Shirt


tome-1Every day,’s editors reveal their current obsessions—and where to buy them. Check out today’s pick, below.

At the moment, I can’t seem to get my hands on enough classic white shirts, which add a crisp polish to any look. This summer, I’ve been pairing basic oxfords with jeans for a casual work outfit, rocking them with cutoffs in Williamsburg, and even wearing them as cover-ups for weekend beach excursions. I was thrilled to learn that my friends Ryan Lobo and Ramon Martin of Tome recently released a perfect, white cotton button-up with an easy, loose fit, which is currently sold exclusively on Net-a-Porter. While shirts are staples in every Tome collection, what makes this style special is its charitable mission. The designers are donating proceeds from each sale to Katie Ford’s Freedom for All organization, which wages war on human trafficking and modern-day slavery. “A white shirt is the perfect metaphor for a clean slate, and Katie is giving victims around the world a fresh start,” said Lobo at a celebration for Tome’s new capsule. “It’s really about spreading awareness. Women will learn more about what Katie does and maybe buy a $400 shirt, or it might encourage them to write her a $7,000 check.” In this case, combining goodwill with a good shirt makes for great taste.
