At a certain point, even the most motivated man must ask himself: now that John Daly has praised the cut of my underwear, what new worlds are there to conquer? Determining that the answer to that is "dress shirts", Slix.
Available by appointment only in a warmly outfitted UP fitting cave dubbed "The Front Room", Slix's custom-wrought, handmade dress shirts are the handsome next step from the company behind the performance undergarments famously endorsed by golf's most lubricated legend. How it works: enter through an unmarked green door behind Starbucks and ascend to the second floor, where a rep'll serve you booze, query you on intended shirt usage, and make recs from 500+ nothing-but-cotton fabrics, many from Italian mills; then they'll take a dozen measurements, from yoke & chest to arms & gut -- but if that expands too much, the yoke will be you. Accentuating options include contrasting fabric on the inside collar/cuff & side gussets, contrast stitching, no-charge monogramming, and digitally embroidered signatures; once all's settled, the specs are sent to New Jersey's Mel Gambert, famous for outfitting Michael Douglas in Wall Street, back when Gekkos were too stylish to go naked and green.
Through October, mention Thrillist when ordering three shirts, and Slix'll give you a no-cost bonus shirt that'll be rush-delivered for you to try on and note any needed fit adjustments to the others before they're sent to your door, after which just like John Daly, you'll have conquered a brave new world: engaging in a foursome while still in your underwear.
