It's true that clothes make the man, the ultimate proof being that, without that badass fedora, The Shadow would be just be a Hollow one. Setting out to make men with the polo, Austin's own Criquet Shirts. Criquet was launched by lifelong buddies -- one an architect, the other a young-adult fiction author -- who claim to've first noticed the power of polos as 5-year-old newcomers to their NYC boarding school, where their enforced wardrobe garnered "approving nods from parents" and "lingering glances from the ladies". Adding "a splash of hipster" to the memory of "Doctor Jack" (a possibly stolen 1970s golf shirt whose loss made them want to commit assisted suicide), they created the Perfect Pique: a not-too-heavy-or-thin organic cotton woven available in 6 colors (Peacoat, Sage Grey, Smoked Pine...), with a thin two-button placket, a slightly dropped tail, and a small chest pocket embroidered with a grassy C; overall, they say it's a shirt you'd "put in heavy rotation during a summer in Boulder", where most students get grassy D's. The other basic style's the Player's Shirt, an organic jersey cotton number in 11 solid/striped varieties, with a four-button placket, a recycled collar stay, and a buttoned chest flap pocket with a hole at the top that serves as a "secret pen stash", so no one will know you're in the Pen15 club, unless it's WRITTEN ALL OVER YOUR ARM. Criquet hasn't landed its rags in any retailers yet, but right now their e-store's offering gratis shipping for all Texans -- so not only can you buy from the Shadows of your living room, you'll also save some Bacon.
