TGIF Shopping: Polo Experts Feldspar Brook Launches SoHo Flagship Store

Feldspar Brook has opened the doors to their first brick-and-mortar location, a brand-new flagship store in Manhattan’s SoHo district.

“Let’s be honest,” says Feldspar Brook’s Editor-In-Chief Robyn Roberts. “The construction process for your ‘first born,’ whether that’s a home or a business, is a rather painful one. Every new day at the site is just another opportunity to second guess those fixtures or that layout. But once it’s complete and the dust settles, things start to feel like home. The whole process has been surreal.”

Feldspar Brook designs its polo shirts in the same place it was born, downtown Manhattan, taking its inspiration–and namesake–from the Feldspar Brook trickling stream in upstate New York. The idea to start the company came not only from passion, but a belief that the polo had not quite been mastered yet.

“The founders wanted to create something that wasn’t simply about a perfect shirt, they wanted compassion to resonate in everything Feldspar Brook put forth. We had the intellect along with the craftsmanship to design and manufacture ‘The Perfect Polo’ and what’s more, we were confident we could offer ours at a very competitive price.”

That price: $125.

The polos are made of pure, 100% Egyptian Pima cotton and are crafted through a process known as piece-dying (in which a continuous length of dry cloth is passed through a trough of hot dye solution). Perhaps best of all: Feldspar utilizes a controlled heating technique to pre-shrink the knits before the fabric is cut, thus each polo promises to retain a perfect shape through countless washes, resulting in almost 0% shrinkage over time.

“We aren’t about to sway someone to try chartreuse when all they wear is black or grey, unless they truly want to be swayed.”

If that’s the case, they have 27 colors (including banana creme and cool mint) with 29 additional colors and tones coming soon.

The 10 best men’s workout shirts to help you get fit in 2023

There are multiple things to consider when purchasing new workout apparel. You want to make sure you do your due diligence beforehand. When looking for the optimal workout shirt, functionality often takes precedence over style, for most men. After all, a minimalist cotton t-shirt is ideal, but it won't look (or smell) so great after an hour-long workout, especially if your working out, outdoors. That's why, in the past decade, some of our favorite activewear brands like Lululemon, Vuori, and Under Armour have developed breathable fabrics with moisture-wicking and odor-fighting technology that are now practically must-haves for any exercise gear, especially when it comes to making high-quality shirts.

That being said, not all workout tops are created equal. When it comes to finding the right workout fit, make sure it doesn't feel too tight or baggy around your underarms, your shoulders, or across your chest, i.e., the areas you exercise most. We sifted through some of the most popular brands to select the best workout shirts that are as practical as they are fashionable. Here are our top picks for the best men's workout shirts of 2023.

Every holiday has its own traditions and customs. And St. Patrick's Day is no different.
