Concord Button Downs Announces New Collaboration

CBD1

With the upcoming release of its spring line, Concord Button Downs has joined forces with five additional clothing companies to help expand the importance of American made clothing. In partnering with these other organizations, Concord Button Downs plans to release a lookbook highlighting products exclusively made in the United States. The project has been coined, “The Made in America Collaboration.” Along with this new partnership, Concord Button Downs will release their new line of fine shirting, as well as a renovated website. Just like their previous line of men’s shirts, Concord Button Downs’ founder, Dan Castelline, continues to produce quality products that are made in the United States. To help with “The Made in America Collaboration,” Castelline connected with: Collared Greens, an eco-friendly neck wear company located in North Carolina, Jack Donnelly Khakis, a Georgia based pant company, Lemon & Line, a bracelet brand founded in Rhode Island, Gameday Blazers, a South Carolina company producing colorful sport coats, and Orvis, a renowned sporting brand with headquarters in Vermont and Virginia. All five companies seek to create products that represent the richness and history of American-made clothing. “My hope for this lookbook was to create a collaboration of quality products made in States for alike customers. We want to highlight the craftsmanship of domestically made goods via multiple boutiques and companies” said Castelline. Concord Button Downs is excited to bring its customers a completely renovated website, spring line, and a new collaboration on Thursday, May 16, 2013.

“The Made in America Collaboration is a stockpile of photographs, which highlight garments produced by local craftspeople. This collaboration was established to further unify companies that promote American made products, and believe in domestic ingenuity. Through the generosity of five independent clothing brands we outfitted our model entirely in American made apparel. As a result, this lookbook accentuates the unsurpassed quality of American products, while also demonstrating each company’s allegiance to support alike organizations. We feel privileged to have hosted such an event, and believe this shoot proves that Made in America is stronger now than ever before.”

-CBD Founder, Daniel Castelline

I’m really looking forward to seeing this “Made in U.S.A.” Lookbook as well as Concord Button Downs’ new site and Spring Line. Keeping a clothing brand’s manufacturing process domestic is no easy task. Celebrate the quality and history of domestic apparel by hash tagging #MadeinUSAcollab and liking CBD on Facebook.

Holiday Gift Guide — The Boss

Although the weather hasn’t quite gone along with the Winter Wonderland theme the past two Decembers in New England, it doesn’t mean the staff at T&V can’t celebrate the most wonderful time of the year! To kick off my gift guide/wish list, I’d like to thank our advertisers who have supported us through the year. You’ve helped the site grow and outfit our readers in some awesome clothing! Without further adieu, here is The Boss’ Holiday Gift Guide:

The “Deerfield” shirt via J.J. Threads. Inspired by Deerfield Academy. Use code “t&v” for 20% off.

 (Gray) Pullover by Goodees Clothing. Just as comfortable as VV and Patagonia for 1/2 the price.

Black face with luminous hands and subdials for easy reading of time. Scratch-resistant mineral crystal; superaccurate quartz movement. Case diameter 41mm. Water resistant to 50m. Imported.

Grandfather Time and Flavor Flav got nothing on this. Have a happy New Year!
