Don’t look for the season’s hottest trends at SID MASHBURN. The overriding aesthetic of this clubbish haberdashery is stylish durability a “best in class” approach with clothes selected for timelessness, attention to detail and craftsmanship. Therefore, crisp Levi’s 501 jeans are sold alongside bench-made English shoes, hand-sewn Italian shirts, Lacoste polos, silk poplin ties, Incotex pants, Macintosh rubberized rainwear and Brunello Cucinelli cashmere sweaters. Carefully chosen accessories include English umbrellas, Liberty-print boxers, Creed cologne and rugged Filson luggage. And house-brand offerings are admirably functional: shirts have breast pockets, khakis have watch pockets, buttons are mother-of-pearl. You won’t find breadbox-sized logos, faux-tropical casual wear or tags reading “Made in China.” The outfits you buy from Sid could be worn for a lifetime. Makes you wish you had a trust fund.
