Back in September I met up with Pranav Vora, Founder & CEO of Hugh & Crye, for a DCist story on Fashion Week. Hugh & Crye is a start-up located here in D.C. that makes high end men’s dress shirts and ties. The shirts are designed specifically to fit better than most off the rack shirts. They do this by eschewing regular sleeve and collar sizes and instead size their shirts by body type. I was skeptical at first but then I tried on one of their shirts and it fit me perfectly.
A few days later I did a short fashion shoot with Pranav, Customer Service guru Philip Soriano and their friend Myca Ferrer, who acted as our model. We traipsed around Georgetown for a few hours, shooting different looks at different locations. It was my first “fashion shoot” and it was a lot of fun. I was pretty happy with the results and so was Pranav, some of my shots are now featured on the Hugh & Crye website. And as for the product, I now own four Hugh & Crye shirts and I wear them as often as I can. If you are tired of dress shorts that are too baggy and don’t fit right, be sure to give Hugh & Crye a look.
