What’s your standby album? You know what I’m talking about: the one record you can thrown on in almost any situation, and it just works. Mine is Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours — I’ve been listening to that ish for more than two decades at this point, and it’s never once gotten old or failed to cheer me up. It’s a handy thing to have.
Consider this fetching denim shirt from D.C.-based shirtmaker Hugh & Crye your new sartorial standby album.
Crafted from a beautiful, lightweight denim fabric with a boatload of stellar details — a classic button-down collar; a trim, tailored fit; and gold piping on the last buttonhole for some subtle flair — it’s exactly the kind of comfortable, striking piece that you can wear virtually anytime, anywhere. Dressed up with a jacket and tie? Absolutely. Rock it under a leather jacket with a pair of black jeans and boots? Go for it. Rolled up sleeves with some well-worn shorts in the summer? Yessiree.
One last tip: if the countless scratched, warped or lost copies of Rumours I’ve owned on both CD and vinyl over the years are any indication, you might want to stock up on a few of these guys while you can.
