Billy Nachman and Hobson Brown set out on a quest to find the perfect shirt. Guided by memories of their very first collared shirts from early days in prep school and well-worn hand-me-downs from dads, uncles and others, Billy and Hobson spared no effort to find the perfect shirt of their dreams. In the end, unable to track down this elusive prize, they did what any two enterprising young men would do…they set out to design and make it on their own.
