–Cary Grant


“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”

–Leonardo da Vinci

Featured items this week:


We received a small group of solid linen bows, and they are even better in person. It is a nice option when wearing a patterned shirt and jacket – and the colors are fantastic!



Made by our friends at New England Shirt Company in Fall River, MA, this shirt is a perfect example of "dressy linen". Wearing it with our without a tie is a look that is perfect for any event this summer season.




'Tis the season for lobster-wear. We like to be a little more subtle and have the lobster designs on the back. We have both a wool version (as in the photo) and a new chunky cotton sweater in store. Both are perfect for a chilly summer evening sitting out on the boat or deck.
