Fashion is notoriously fickle. As designers are locked in an endless race to create the next hottest thing, trends seem to change from one minute to the next (meanwhile, you’re left holding a stack last season’s dress shirts). This is why it’s refreshing to find a designer (or brand) that doesn’t prioritize trends, but rather, making a product that is classic and high quality (ergo, it will never go out of style). One such brand is Circle of Gentlemen, which we proudly carry here at Harleys in Shorewood, Wisconsin.
Circle of Gentlemen is a Netherlands-based clothier known for superior European craftsmanship, high quality fabrics, and precision tailoring. The brand was founded in 2005 by two friends in pursuit of a simple goal. They wanted to design a three-button dress shirt that they themselves could wear. The rest is history.
For Spring/Summer 2014, Circle of Gentlemen has expanded its Dressed Collection by adding half-canvas dress suits. The collection still includes classic Circle of Gentlemen dress shirts.
The aesthetic of the collection was inspired by the 1960’s, when styles ran the gamut from bold patterns and textures to the restrained, clean-cut look of business men (think Don Draper in AMC’s show Mad Men). So, the Circle of Gentlemen Spring/Summer 2014 collection of shirts features bold, but still tasteful, infusions of color and patterns.
The suits have a slimmer cut, especially around the waist, and feature the sober yet sophisticated colors of 1960’s business style, but with elegant pops of color.
Stop into Harleys and see these amazing, classic pieces for yourself. Any one of them is sure to add timeless sophistication to every Wisconsin man's wardrobe.
