Like some of the best inventions, Steven Alan's signature Reverse Seam Shirt was the culmination of deliberation and accident. While the reverse French seams and narrow placket were purely intentional, the twisted placket, on the other hand, was happenstance. The result? A button down that's become the building block of many urban closets, and a modern classic.
Alan's deep appreciation of the most minute details, coupled with his keen understanding of how most men shop—"you can't go too far from what men feel comfortable wearing, so you can just push a very little bit"—has helped him create clothes that feel classic yet fresh, and in his words, "just easy."
