After a successful launch of our latest collection - a collaboration with Janie Bryant, Emmy-award winning costume designer, we thought we'd pause to take you through some of the pieces and the thoughts behind them.
This collaboration was brought to life because Taylor Draper and Janie Bryant are both deeply aware of the transformative power of clothing. Whether you're Jon Hamm, donning a jacket to transform entirely into your character, Don Draper, or you climb out of bed and you just need to don your own suit of armor to face the struggles that day holds, clothing can change you.
So let's walk through a few of the pieces, and why we love them so much.
The shirts that are part of our Bryant/Draper Collection are made of the highest quality fabrics, designed with an extreme attention to detail. The shirts in this collection come in a neutral tan, a contrasting blue and white striped shirt, and a crisp, white shirt. Here's a bit more about each piece, in Janie's words,
"[The] Bryant Draper’s tan linen button down is the perfect neutral that you never knew you needed. The fabric is luxurious and super breathable, perfect to pair with our Sharkskin Suit for a very of the moment monochromatic look."
This tux shirt, believe it or not, devolved from James Bonds ruffled tux shirt from On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. Gone are the ruffles, replaced by precise pleats that frame the buttons of the shirt. It’s a simplified version of your tuxedo shirt, and it looks amazing with our BRYANT/DRAPER tuxedo, trust me!
"This blue and white striped club collar shirt is about to become a favorite in your wardrobe."
The Braxton Top Coat
The Top Coat is part of Inherent Clothier's extension beyond suits. A beautiful, stunning, luxurious addition to your wardrobe. We designed this piece knowing we wanted it to be able to be paired with anything. No matter what you're wearing underneath, the tan and black color pairing makes it easy to coordinate.
Here's a bit more about it in Janie's words:
"A top coat should be a staple in every man's closet, just as it was for "Don Draper" in Mad Men, especially a Camel Top Coat."
We have three different, unique shoes that were introduced in our Bryant/Draper Collection. One for every occasion, we have a boot, a loafer, and a double monk. All made of high-quality, durable and beautiful materials, these shoes were built to last, and made to be worn. Here's a bit more about each shoe:
"This shoe is a nod to men’s fashion at the turn of the 20th century, and is now the perfect addition to your 21st century wardrobe."
"We’ve all thought about leaving the house in our slippers before, and with this leather pair from our Bryant Draper collection, now you can. The material is so lux, and the small brown leather bow adds the perfect amount of contrast. Wear these with your favorite suit- you may love them so much that you’ll even wear them around the house!"
"Our leather two tone jodhpur boot is the perfect boot for a heightened day to day look."
