The Button Down collared shirt is one of the most important items in any man’s wardrobe. Originating from the polo fields of England in the late 19th Century.
Polo players were required to wear a traditional collared shirt ; the buttons stopped it flapping around and from the function developed the form we know today.
Ours are Made in Italy from the very best Oxford Cotton and feature a slightly exaggerated collar making them just as great with or without a tie.
Seafarers have produced a great looking magazine for Summer.
It gives a good outline of what is happening over the Summer period as well as an overview of everything the Seafarers Club offers members.
We have complimentary copies in store.
Hudson and Halls was a staple part of my TV viewing diet and inspired my mother to stray from her normal repertoire of good kiwi basics and even buy a fondue set.
This subsequently caught on fire and was thrown in haste out of our dining room window.
Never far from culinary disaster themselves, this dynamic duo was fantastic entertainment then and now this has been reenacted in a great piece of theatre at the Silo Theatre.
It runs through to December 12th and is well worth it.
Our thoughts are with all our friends and colleagues in Paris.
What a terrible situation for such a wonderful city.
I have been lucky enough to travel there on many occasions and this will not stop me from going back.

Very sad to hear of Peter McLeavey’s passing after a long battle with Parkinson’s.
Peter was a true visionary whose chosen field happened to be contemporary art.
He was a great connector and a true gentleman with a fantastic flair for dressing well.
New Zealand culture, in particular, the arts, has so much to owe this man.
We can all be thankful for what he has left us.
