Product Reviews by Dorn: Mizzen+Main

I have been bestowed the opportunity to write reviews for some of my favorite products available at Man Outfitters, for several reasons: 1) I have style and people know it, 2) people look up to me, 3) we have some really sharp merch that needs pushing, and perhaps most importantly, 4) a lot of you dress like total shit and flat-out need my help. I’m all over social media, guys. I see the pics.

Man Outfitters sends me the shirt, pants, shoes, live hand grenades, etc. that I choose to review because I like and endorse them, I wear them around or try them out, assess their quality and style, then I tell you all about them. Easy enough.

This week, I am featuring two shirts by Mizzen+Main: the Wright Gingham Button Down, and the Arapahoe Henley.

Wright Gingham Button Down

by Mizzen+Main
Color: Green
Price: $125
Available at: ManOutfitters.com

The first thing you need to know about Mizzen+Main button downs is they are truly unlike any other on the market. It’s the dri-fit of button downs. It feels like a shirt I’m supposed to work out in, not wear while sitting in a fake library with bookshelf wallpaper behind me, holding an empty prop glass of scotch with a punchable face.

The material is stretchy — four way stretchy even. It actually kind of caught me off guard when I first put it on. It wasn’t the kind of button down I was used to, at all, because it’s basically a dri-fit, like I said. It breathes, stretches, doesn’t wrinkle, doesn’t go to the dry-cleaners, doesn’t ever touch an iron, and wicks moisture. Great shirt for you heavy sweaters, and southerners in general.

All that means is it’s, by far, the most comfortable button down I’ve ever worn. A bold statement, I realize, but it feels like it’s constantly having sensual intercourse with my torso, and my torso keeps begging for more.

It’s a little high, but definitely worth the price tag, especially since it’s made right here in America by red-blooded Americans. You’ll agree once you put one on the first time.

Arapahoe Henley

by Mizzen+Main
Color: Light Blue
Price: $58
Available at: ManOutfitters.com

First impression: outside my comfort zone.

This is a shirt designed for someone built like Dwayne Johnson, right? Not me. Then I saw Cubes pulling it off on Bloomberg. If he’s in the Mizzen+Main Henley game, why can’t I be?

Besides, it really makes my pecs pop.

A couple weeks ago I was unfamiliar with Mizzen+Main. I’m now a huge fan.
