Maybe you’re lucky enough to be heading down to Florence, Alabama the first weekend in June for a party known as The Shindig; for the past two years, Billy Reid (the guy and his company) throws this weekend-long bash for friends and family that’s filled with live music, good food, boating and booze. If you’re not on the coveted guest list and feel like crashing, well, perhaps something from the Billy Reid collection might help you gain access to a weekend of southern-fried fun.

I admit I’m not always down with the floral print apparel. But that doesn’t mean my wardrobe can’t make room for one as sweet as the floral print design coming from Epaulet. The standard slim-fit shirt, made up in a nice printed UK cloth, shows off a likable tight pattern of floral, making it a shirt I can easily match with jeans or chinos.

Austin-based Criquet delivers us the ‘Perfect’ Pique polo, cut from 100% certified organic pique cotton that’s not too heavy, not too thin…just right. At $55, the polo is part of Billy Nachman and Hobson Brown’s vintage-inspired collection of fine-looking polo shirts; good for the golf course, good for the bar after the golf course.

Another Mr. Hare King Tubby shoe to stare at on Oki-Ni, just in time for S/S 2011 lounging. The King Tubby from Mr. Hare has gone through a few adjustments since the beginning of the year, with a switched-up silhouette to make them more “creeperish,” as Hare himself put it. They are slightly higher and have extra durability built in in the way of a rubber heel insert. Salmon skin uppers are glossy and luxurious, notes Hare, saying that they “look like a million bucks.”

Into Moncole we go, happily bypassing what are probably interesting articles on ‘innovative marketing in the Swiss Alps,’ ‘Moscow architecture’ and the ‘Montreux Jazz festival’ for the all-important Monocle Shop. Yet another fine collaboration with UK designer Oliver Spencer and Monocle has resulted in a stylish third shirt featuring a classic Oxford design with signature cuff and pocket detail.

Inspired by the clean sartorial sense of mid-century architects, independent shirt maker Taylor Stitch and the modern architecture/design magazine Dwell collaborated rather nicely together on an organic, yarn-dyed cotton dress shirt that is known as the Architect’s Shirt. The result is a dapper, slim-fitting shirt that comes in a graphite-colored gingham, and even features a small button on the chest pocket that makes for an ideal pencil holder.
