If you're looking for a post on Linkin Park or fuel friendly vehicles I hate to disappoint you, but this is going to be a little something different. As it stands right now my two favorite shirt collars are of the club and button down variety, but I have never seen the two combined until today when my new Unis oxford arrived in the mail. It's funny because when I ordered it last week I had purchased it under the assumption it was a normal button down collar oxford like the thousands of shirts that had come before it in the history of shirting. You can imagine my surprise when I was examining it further and realized that the collar was in fact a hybrid of my two favorite styles.
See, I love club collars since they add a little punch to a standard shirt, but I hate how it can get out of hand if not buttoned all the way up. On the flip side, a button down collar is great, but lacks said personality of the aforementioned club collar. By combining the attributes of both Eunice Lee has created a very unique and functional collar that is unlike most of the stuff out there. While I normally scoff at anything "hybrid" for their bastardization of something classic, this shirt really looks great - it also helps that the fit is top notch, but I wasn't expecting anything less from the sexy GQ and CDFA's best new designer in America nominee.
After browsing the Unis webstore I was disappointed to see that no S/S options were for sale yet, but you can grab the fall shirt seen below on sale if you are in the business of planning ahead. Moral of the story: if what I just said seems like something you would be interested in be on the lookout for Unis because they have got hybrid theory down to a tee.
