In Walter HagenÕs time, working class guys from Rochester like him werenÕt allowed into the elite golf clubs of the world. But as Hagen said, he Ònever wanted to be a millionaire, just live like one.Ó So he busted his way in, by winning.
We like to think weÕre doing the same thing. We donÕt think that quality and fit should be reserved just for expensive designer brands.
The Hagen is part of our spread collar button-down collection of shirts. This one is a beautiful purple, offset check pattern. Hagen was known as a sharp dresser and we like to think he had a couple of purple shirts in his wardrobe. It features a distinctive double-top button, spread collar button-down and convertible cuffs.

Egyptian cotton is a particular variety that is grown in only a few other places. It is renowned as some of the best in the world. It has an extra long staple, which means it has longer fibers, resulting in a silkier, more durable fabric.
Poplin, sometimes called broadcloth, is a plain weave which means the threads alternately cross over and then under each other. This results in a very smooth and durable fabric that has an almost silky hand feel, particularly with higher thread counts. Also, poplins look very crisp when ironed.
Hugh & Crye dress shirts use a sizing system based on body types. They're ready-made fitted shirts, designed for lean and athletically built men.
We make shirts crafted for the height of your torso (short, average, tall) and your overall build (skinny, slim, athletic, or broad). Our shirts aren't made for the masses. They're made for you.
James, above, wears Tall/Slim.
