Growth is often spurred by stepping out of ones' comfort zone, like that time you moved to the ghetto, fell in love with a hip hop dancer, and totally impressed Juilliard with your urban-spiked ballet! For a jeanmaker testing out new territory, check out Edwin.
A lauded Japanese brand that's been in the high-qual denim game for 60+ years, Edwin's latest drop abets the jeans they're renowned for with non-pant offerings they claim are evocative of a "harbour master, not poseur on the Riviera", useful for those wanting to go nautical without looking like a total Moby Dick. Inaugural buttondown highlights include a checkered blue-green job with a diagonally-striped chest pocket and contrasting plaid placket/collar/lining, and a 1920s-construction-worker-esque blue chambray number with reinforced elbow patches, a narrow white horizontal seam across the chest, and a worn-in look thanks to an enzyme bath, though considering your drooling, haven't all of your shirts received one? If collars terrify you, they've also got 100% cotton tees like the horizontal navy/white striped Nautilus; Old Man and the Sea, with a screenprint of an awesomely bearded "weatherbeaten veteran"; and "Warship", boasting a huge vessel surrounded by a French phrase translating to "It's not man who takes the sea, it's the sea who takes the man". Man, the French will roll over for anything.
Of course you can still nab denim leg coverings, from the regular-fit, pre-crinkled, unwashed ED-62, to the ED-47, made from proprietary "Rainbow Selvage" and rocking an "anti-fit" silhouette they claim is extra comfortable because it "doesn't follow your body shape", which is what Juilliard was going to say about your dancing before you totally saved the last dance!
