Weekend Style: Is Your Shirt Designed from the Inside Out?


Well, is it? Chances are, the shirt you’re wearing right now was cut and sewn from a pattern, sized perfectly to be worn by some fit model somewhere. Which might be okay for said fit model, but Descendant of Thieves designer and founder Dres Ladro thinks otherwise. In fact, when he was a child, he used to sneak into his father’s closet, steal his shirts and reconstruct them to his own liking.

But how did (does) he actually make his shirts better than the average button-up? First of all, the silhouette is slimmer, so you’re not swimming in an abyss of fabric. Special engineering under the collar prevents roll-over to keep you looking fresh, and an elastic top button closure increases comfort and reduces strangulation. You know how when you roll your cuffs, sometimes they flare out in a very guido-esque way? Well Ladro placed the button at the cuff edge, preventing such nonsense from transpiring.

And if all of this isn’t enough to convince you, each Descendant of Thieves shirt is a limited production run of no more than 400. Each one is numbered on the care label if you don’t believe us. With a price point around $98, stepping up your shirt game this weekend won’t cost you an arm and a leg.
