Truly Luxurious

Luxury for me is appreciating what is before me. My shirts and shoes are made all the more luxurious when I care for them.

The simple act of laundering my own shirts, hanging them to dry and hand-ironing them reminds me of how beautiful they are. The flowing cut of a collar, the intricate weave of the fabric, and the sheen of a button are all appreciated even more - not just through wear.

Seeing the shine emerge on a pair of shoes during polishing is akin to that aha moment when a day's look works out perfectly. The detail of decorative perforations, the antiquing of a fine-grained upper, or the beauty of closely-spaced stitching is fully enjoyed.

Luxury in wear and care.
