Meet the Zenith Shirt

Introducing our amazing new shirt, one that’s truly designed to live many lives. Because here’s the thing: a shirt isn’t worn just one way. 

In the Zenith, I get completely soaked while riding my bike, wear it a few days in a row under my blazer, feel comfortable stuck on an airplane… basically, I go anywhere and do anything. 

This shirt was inspired by the Meridian, our first travel-friendly work dress shirt. We still love the Meridian, and know many of you do too. Think of Zenith as simply another addition to your capsule wardrobe. 

Your feedback on the Meridian helped us get here. We listened to your requests, and took up the challenge of creating another shirt that would not only perform, but was even more versatile and offered more options. 

Of course, the Zenith pairs well with the rest of our line, and it’s sure to become a staple in your well-dressed wardrobe, ready for all the ways you want to wear it.

Meet the Fabric

Zenith Shirt features

 

  • Lightweight polyester 
  • Machine washable
  • Wrinkle resistant, no iron fabric
  • Odor resistant and moisture-wicking
  • Breathable and soft, with two-way stretch

 

When we found this new fabric (what we call Zenith — our products are named after their fabrics), we achieved an enhanced level of odor resistance, a lighter weight, and a cooler, drier handfeel. Thanks to its anti-odor treatment and great moisture wicking capabilities, the Zenith is ready to go wherever you are.

It’s also a very soft shirt compared to most technical, wrinkle resistant dress shirts. I can’t stand being uncomfortable or feeling restricted, so the Zenith’s two-way stretch fabric is great for movement and comfort, whether I’m biking across town or working at my desk.

We designed new, custom hidden buttons under the collar, so you get the benefits of a true button down, without anything showing or the need for collar stays. We decided to streamline the shirt by keeping it pocket-free, for a more polished look. 

So although it’s a highly technical fabric, the Zenith doesn’t look or feel like your standard performance dress shirt. Just the way I like it.

Ways to Wear It

Wearing the Zenith shirt in Italy

Every guy wants to wear his shirt, his way, where he needs to go. So a big priority for us was making sure that this functioned like a traditional dress shirt but also had the ability to look good in different settings.

The Zenith is designed to be versatile, so we made it in two easy-to-wear patterns (to start with).

You really wanted a solid color dress shirt, and the Blue Micro Check is our current answer. Remember when we said developing a true solid color is challenging in our fabrics? I wasn’t kidding, and it still is. 

Now, we’re a step closer, with a subtly patterned performance dress shirt that reads like a classic solid blue. It pairs perfectly with our chinos or Gramercy suit for business meetings, but is easy to wear casually with jeans and a t-shirt.

The gingham is a more distinct pattern, ideal for fall and just as versatile as the blue. I wore it in Upstate New York and Italy, and found it looked great with our vest on a hike, but dressed up nicely with our suit for nice dinners out with my wife.

This one was a team effort with you guys. Your feedback helped us prioritize the features for this shirt, and I’m super excited about how we brought together style and function with the Zenith.

I hope you love our newest shirt as much as I do, and that you wear it for whatever adventures await you.
