Last weekend, I was lucky enough to travel to Kansas City and shop at one of my favorite boutiques in the nation, Standard Style. The owners of Standard Style also own an amazing made in the USA denim brand, Baldwin Denim & Collection.
The line includes great denim, but I fell in love with the KC wool hat and the Paulie shirts. The Paulie shirt is cut slimmer than a typical mens shirt, but the best aspect of the shirt is the sleeve length. On the hanger, it appears as a 3/4 sleeve, but when worn, the sleeve is casually rolled without the bulky cuff of a rolled up long sleeve shirt. Really, really smart. So smart, I bought the denim Paulie shirt in an XS for me. I also bought the husband the William, on the right. The “flannel” is a heavy weight japanese cotton slub twill, which will age beautifully!
Kansas City holds a special place in my heart, so I am more than happy to support a brand that is based in that beautiful city and growing yet another great made in America brand.
