Corridor x American Trench cotton & linen button down shirt
We are pleased to present our first ever collaboration with Corridor NYC: the summer outfit featuring a cotton/linen button down and cotton seersucker trousers. We wanted to create the ideal casual (but smart) summer outfit, with a polished and refined style that looks appropriate no matter what the setting: a summer wedding, a day at the office, or on the beach.
Our friend Dan Snyder, the founder and designer of Corridor has created a three panel shirt fit that is based off of a vintage 1950's era pattern. The fit is trim and flattering for an American body type - it has a wider shoulder and more tapered waist without the use of darts or pleats. All seams are chain stitched, which adds durability but even more important it lays beautifully on the body. Why aren't all shirts made this way? To quote Dan, "it's a pain the rear!" It requires an extra panel in the pattern, pattern matching (on plaids and prints), and extra stitching. But here's the thing, all that extra effort really pays off - it's a superior fit that feels great, looks great, and washes and wears extremely well.
For our summer '16 collaboration we choose to do the classic white button down in a 50/50 cotton linen blend. It looks great with everything in your closet and fabric will keep you cool and breezy through the summer heat.
Fabric and Construction
The fabric of the AT x Corridor summer '16 shirt is a 50/50 blend of cotton and linen in a soft white, expertly woven in Japan. It has a nice slub texture characteristic of linen but still looks polished. The 50/50 cotton/linen blend provides excellent drape and doesn't get the mega wrinkles that 100% linen shirts get.
