Grayers Is New At STAG!

Grayers has made so much great clothing in such a short time in business that it seems like they’re already a menswear institution. That’s probably because creative director Kenny Thomas spent 10+ years designing for Ralph Lauren (many of them with RRL) and has some  massive design chops.   That and his partner at Grayers, Peter Georgiou, paid his dues with Ralph too and is one of the best sourcing and production gurus in the game. Put their skills together and you get beautiful stuff like this – which is exactly what your wardrobe needs to get through the warmer months this summer.

Grayers2

The button down collar and pocket are traditional OCBD elements on the Vintage Oxford Shirt, but the Aqua / Yellow check is entirely new.

Grayers1

The print on this Grape Leaf shirt is both subtle and distinct at the same time.

Grayers3a

The Newport Club shorts are slim-fitting and hit a little above the knee. They’re the perfect low-key shorts for the spring and summer.

Grayers4

A lightweight, short sleeved, blue gingham cotton shirt like this one might be the single best thing a man can wear when it’s hot outside.

Grayers5

The vintage-inspired floral print, coupled with how soft it is make this shirt another excellent lightweight short sleeved woven shirt for spring and summer.

Grayers5a

These shorts have the same perfectly-fitting, yet democratic cut as the more subdued ones above, and feature great prints.

Grayers6

The look and feel of this Nep Polo in Heather Blue is achieved by using a special dyeing process and the manufacturer’s garment wash.

Grayers7

There’s a subtle red ladder stitch on this nautical-inspired Baron Tee that gives it an unexpected pop of color.

These new arrivals, as well as our entire collection from Grayers is available in the shop at 1423 South Congress Avenue in Austin, Texas and online at StagAustin.com.

York Street by J. Press Is New At STAG

When J. Press, one of the most coveted, storied, and oft-imitated brands in the world, got together with two of menswear’s fastest-rising stars in Ariel and Shimon Ovadia, the results became York Street. Now a couple seasons in, the collaboration continues to be one of the most exciting collections we carry here at STAG.

YorkSt1

The Jones Seersucker Shirt is constructed from two different cotton seersucker fabrics. The result is a cool, surprisingly easy shirt to wear for the spring and summer.

YorkSt2

These suede sneakers are the results of a collaboration between York Street and Tretorn. So really it’s a collaboration between J. Press, the Ovadia brothers, and the legendary shoe brand. Excellent company.

YorkSt3

This Russell Gingham Shirt is in a low-key grey, and features the same signature attention to detail that made J. Press famous.

YorkSt4

Whether you choose a whimsical bicycle tie or a more traditional stripe, these ties will travel to any more formal affair worth attending. Or, you know, to work.

YorkSt5

The Pierpoint Madras Shirt is made from 100% lightweight cotton, and features such subtle details as the vertical locker loop in back, and a ribbon lined gusset for casual, untucked wear.

YorkSt6

These Engine Turned Belts are two of the most versatile items you can have in your wardrobe. The black one is in suede, and both are made from 100% Italian leather.

You can check out our entire collection from York Street by J. Press in our shop at 1423 South Congress Avenue in Austin, Texas, or online at StagAustin.com.

STAG Behind The Scenes: Shooting Stripes In the Wind

Stripes1

Horizontal stripes have been taking root in our minds the past few seasons, but this spring they have exploded into full bloom. So we figured we’d grab a batch of our favorite fresh picked stripes and head on out to Driftwood, Texas. Which is what we did.

Stripes2

Details are what makes menswear worthwhile, and this East Sea Shirt from Life/After/Denim is no exception. It’s details like the patch pocket at the left, and then the button-down flap pocket on the right that separate this particular shirt from others.

Stripes3

This Baron Tee from Grayers looks like it could have come from any great era of American sportswear. It’s an indigo classic.

Stripes4

The Stripe Ringer T-Shirt from Faherty’s super-soft Organic cotton construction makes it a perfect shirt for sun-drenched days.

Stripes5

The Heather Stripe Henley from Barque works as an excellent layering piece or as a standalone shirt. And the contrast button-down flap pocket is an extra detail that makes it a truly special piece.

Stripes6

The Carlisle Polo from Common People looks like the perfect shirt for a casual day, but it has a heavy-duty construction that makes it ready for anything.

Apologies to Mr. Godard, but all we need for a photo shoot is some clothes, some friends, and a truck. So we loaded up some striped shirts with Bill Sallans and our buddy Austin Amelio and spent the day battling the wind and listening to the sounds of Jim Ford, Bobby Charles and Eddie Hinton. It doesn’t get any better than springtime in Texas.

These fresh picked stripes and many more are available in the shop at 1423 South Congress Ave and online at StagAustin.com.
