What constitutes a perfect shirt is a hotly contested topic at Calexico, so when Calexico Director, Nicky Charman confessed she had an all-time favourite shirt, we were all ears.
Have you met Frank & Eileen?
Hand-woven in Italy, and made in California, Frank & Eileen’s simple, light-weight button-down shirting has long been a Calexico staple. Their laid-back, timeless shirting has a tomboy flair, and comes in colourways to suit every taste and occasion, including prints, checks, and plain classics like white, blue, and pink.
“Frank & Eileen shirts and are both my husband Jamie and my favourite shirts,” says Nicky.
“Perfect for wearing over a swimsuit at the beach, with a pant to the office, or with shorts on the weekend, they’re the shirt you throw on when you don’t want to think, and they always look good. And they’re new-mum friendly (they’re the perfect breastfeeding shirt!).”
“There’s something about a simple button down shirt that both makes a smart statement and feels totally easy. It’s casual but not underdressed – ideal for the work or the weekend.”
And styling your Frank & Eileen couldn’t be simpler. Pair yours with denim (shorts, jeans, skirts…it all works), casually tuck, roll a messy cuff, and style back with your favourite sneakers or summer sandal. Or punch up your day time look with loafers.
