Dressing exactly like everyone else at the office can leave you with wry sarcasm as your only means of self-expression, 'til you realize you're only as wry as the next guy and then must fall back on armpit farts. Or, wear a shirt from Zachary Prell.
After a brief Wall St career spent entirely in boxy buttondowns, Prell set out to design a line of softer, better fitting shirts that could get guys stylishly through their day, and usher them comfortably into happy hour at the bar/sad hour at home. Thoughtful design includes optimal length for casual un-tucking, top button spacing that's neither stuffy nor revealing of your heaving chests, an athletic, broad-shouldered/tapered waist cut, "barrel cuffs" roomy enough for the most ostentatious watch, and Italian silk satin side piping, for that modicum of panache lost when you covered your ostentatious watch. New spring/summer includes the white "Marcus" w/ gray-and-blue stripes, the pink, white, and tan "Schmitt", the gray, blue, and white mini-checked "Vince", and the "Navarro", whose pink/midnight blue scheme will loosen you from your ritual de lo habitual, only to get you hooked on guy-liner.
Beyond buttondowns, Prell offers long- and short- sleeved polos in an array of solids and striped colorways, as well as a collection of rhodium-plated cat's eye cufflinks, which the new office wise-ass will admire even as he admits you to the PEN15 Club.
