Andy South debuts men's collared shirts

Male Order

There's a distinct difference between what a man wants and what he needs.

Want: A luxury suite at the new Santa Clara Stadium and a private jet to take him there – every home game. Need: A stylish basic that shirts the line between "stodgy businessman" and "mom dressed me this morning."

Actually, let's just get that need taken care of right now. Introducing Andy South's new collared men's shirts, available now at Collins & 8th.

Lei Chic This is South's first foray into menswear – a response to countless requests that have flooded in since her eponymous women's line launched last year. The initial styles, a classic short- and long-sleeved linen shirt, are designed to test the market while perfecting fit and construction.

The details are precise. Think a slim, European/Asian-style silhouette that skims the body. A preppy button-down collar. Cuffs that can be unbuttoned and rolled for a casual look. Both styles come in black, white and navy, with moss and slate expected in the coming weeks.

So you can pick one up, just in time for the holidays. Which really takes care of your need too, if you think about it.

A well-dressed guy on your arm while hitting the holiday party circuit is an absolute must.

$130 short-sleeve, $150 long-sleeve, available at Collins & 8th, 560 Pensacola St., Suite 105. For more information, call (808) 593-9696.
