Cool NYC Guys Are Wearing SHRT

We’ve got a secret to share: the best-dressed men about town in New York City didn’t just wake up looking perfectly Instagrammable. They’re wearing SHRT, the new capsule collection of customized shirts designed in collaboration with Bespoken.

Best known for its brand of unstudied, Anglo-American polish, the New York-based brand already has one of the best looking go-to collections for spring and a recent partnership with J. Lindeberg. Now it’s added SHRT, a custom shirt program created in partnership with Warby Parker co-founder Neil Blumenthal, Fat Radish owner Phil Winser, and entrepreneur-cum-DJ Brendan Fallis. Each tastemaker worked with the founders of Bespoken, Liam and Sam Fayed, to create three impeccably styled shirts all made in the UK.

“We love the concept and what it stands for,” said Liam. “All of these guys are innovators in their own right and it’s interesting to bring different elements into our design process. We’re excited to see how our customers react to the launch and the product, and if it’s something they want to see more of, we’d definitely want to continue giving that back.”

As expected, the best features of SHRT are in the details. Fayed, for example, offered Blumenthal a subtle short point collar update to Bespoken’s classic button-down collar, as well as a concealed microfiber cloth for cleaning glasses on the go, while for Winser’s slimmer, button-down silhouette with jersey sleeves he added a hidden passport and boarding pass chest pocket. Fallis’s streamlined shirt, meanwhile, sports a signature Bespoken point collar but mixes a light poplin body with an Oxford cloth sleeve for a quietly trangressive edge.

“Working together with people who care about details and quality as much as I do was a really fulfilling project,” said Fallis, while Winser praised the functionality of his design. “Working with a tailor that comes from such incredible heritage and craftsmanship keeping within tradition but adapting to the modern day man allowed me to create a shirt that was perfectly tailored to the service industry. I wish I could do a whole collection with them.” Here’s to the future of sharper, everyday work shirts indeed. SHRT shirts are $195-225 and available at Bespoken’s website and on Spring, the mobile app.
