Spectre & Co New York shirts

We threw an article up on the Pins a little while back (link included at the footer) about newfound shirt start-up Spectre & Co, but I’d like to add some additional less ‘salty’ verbiage to that endorsement of this eminently affordable new shirtmaker. 

As a fully vertically integrated business, the folks over at Spectre & Co keep their costs down by taking a ‘hands on’ approach to manufacturing. Yes, these shirts are made in China, but if you’re the sort of facilely biased arsehole who thinks that makes them unworthy of attention here’s further reading on why you should reconsider, because brands you love clearly have. 

Put aside the fact that even the most expensive style comes in at under $100 USD, and instead divert your attention to the shirts themselves. Made with separately fused collars for a shirt with better ‘stand’ and in over a dozen seasonal styles, these are versatile and affordable staples that go beyond the standard layering-for-work affair. 

More detailed research on the brand also yields the revelation that these shirts are manufactured in Shanghai, with the aid of design personnel who have put in time at famed shirtmaker Ascot Chang. With the slimmed down body and slight taper through the waist, that house’s DNA has transmuted itself into a more modern more accessible brand.
