Linen is by far one of our favorite fabrics—it’s relaxed, breathable and versatile enough to wear pretty much anywhere. Plus, the possibilities are limitless. In fact, GQ put together a wonderful feature in this month’s issue on linen suiting, with British model-turned-actor Callum Turner doing some heavy lifting in the style department

Check out one of the many styling options for our linen shirts below, and be sure to pick up this month’s issue of GQ for a closer look.

Introducing: The Hamilton 1883 Band Collar Shirt

Monday, June 15, 2015


With the heat of the summer months upon us, many may turn to tee-shirts and light polos to try to stay cool. And while there’s nothing wrong with dressing down for summer, there are several ways to stay comfortable without sacrificing the elevated look of a button-up shirt.

In fact, the Wall Street Journal just published a great article on band collar shirts, suggesting that it “might be the most important piece of the season.” Unlike standard collars, which can cling to your neck and trap heat within the torso, these collars are trimmed down to their bare essentials. With no extra fabric, these shirts are breathable, flexible and versatile—qualities that are perfectly suited for a range of settings, from casual day at the beach to a distinctive detail at formal events.

As such, we are pleased to announce that we have just introduced three styles of band collar shirts to our 1883 line. These shirts are available just in time for the worst of the summer, so you can continue to look your best. Take a look and stay cool out there.

STAG Sets up Shop in Houston

Monday, June 1, 2015


If you follow us on social media, you’ve probably noticed how excited we are that STAG has just set up their newest shop here in Houston. In addition to extending a warm welcome, we also wanted to take a minute to share what sets them apart both as a Hamilton retailer and as an independent men’s lifestyle store in general.

hamilton-shirts-stag-houston-denim

In short, STAG is not a brick and mortar to be boxed in. While they are celebrated for their distinct eye and sense of style, STAG is best known for blurring the boundaries between menswear boutique, apothecary and general store.

Perhaps the biggest thing that we’ve always admired about STAG is their authenticity. Though they stock an expansive (and seemingly disparate) collection of clothing, accessories, one-off antiques and other sundry, everything they carry boils down to a simple formula: “if we love it, we stock it, and if we don’t, you’ll never find it here.”

We are proud to be included alongside such an incredible offering of high-quality garments and everyday essentials. Be sure to drop by STAG on the corner of Westheimer & Kirby, where you’ll find a 3,500 square foot space featuring an eclectic assortment of garments & goods—not to mention a restored interior that brings the space back to it’s 1940’s origins. You can also find them in Austin, Dallas or Venice Beach, CA. Regardless of the location, it’s worth stopping in, even if only to enjoy a beer and some great company.

In the meantime, be sure to follow STAG on Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter & Instagram to stay in the loop.


Hunter Gather: “FRESH” Exhibit

Thursday, May 28, 2015


One of our favorite aspects of Houston is that you can always find something unexpected in your back yard. Most recently, we were turned onto Hunter Gather—a relatively new alternative art space only minutes away from our workshop. Having only opened in September of 2013, the gallery has already garnered a reputation for exhibiting a diverse range of innovative works by a continual variety of featured artists from around the country.

If you haven’t already, tomorrow is the perfect time to visit Hunter Gather as their upcoming show (“Fresh”) is an inaugural part of this year’s summer-long Print Houston celebration, which organizes shows and events in galleries around the city.

Launching with an opening reception tomorrow night at 6:00P,  “Fresh” investigates how contemporary artists are pushing the limits of traditional printmaking. The exhibit includes kinetic, experimental and even sculptural works by six artists who re-imagine the possibilities of what printmaking can entail.

There will be an opening reception for “Fresh” on Friday, May 29th from 6-8P, plus a gallery talk with the artists on Friday, June 5th (also from 6-8P). The exhibit will be up from May 29th-July 25th. For more information on their hours, location and exhibits, visit the Hunter Gather website.
