New at Freeman: Corridor
Posted: Sep 22 2016
It's always exciting for us when we're able to introduce a new brand to our offerings at Freeman, so we're beyond stoked to let you all know about the newest label here at the shop: Corridor, from New York City. Founded by Dan Snyder in 2013, Corridor is well known and highly regarded for the beautiful, unique fabrics of its offerings and their slim-fitting, highly-tailored fit. Everything is made in New York City to Snyder's exacting specifications, and he's a hands-on presence throughout conception and production. We're pleased to offer three shirts from Corridor this fall, with more to come in the seasons ahead.
First is the Japanese Dot. Its Japanese cotton fabric is indigo-dyed and then discharged printed for an irregular dot pattern that looks amazing in person. Like all of Corridor's shirting, it features the brand's own three-panel construction. As explained by Gear Patrol in a 2015 profile on Corridor, "[t]his signature fit is built with three concave panels on the back of each shirt. Along with being comfortable (shoulder and arm movements don’t feel constricted), the three-panel fit provides a more structured fit for men with broad chests and shoulders." The result is an off-the-rack shirt that feels as though it was tailored just for you. Combine that with the beautiful indigo discharge-print fabric, and the Japanese Dot is a bona fide stunner (and the brand's best-selling shirt over the last few years).
Next is the Navy Windowpane Plaid Flannel, a gorgeous dark grey flannel shirt with a classic windowpane plaid pattern. Windowpane plaid is a more muted, subtle take on plaid, so it perfectly fits the minimalist, timeless vibe that defines Corridor. The fabric is medium weight and super soft, great for those crisp fall days. As with the Japanese Dot shirt, the Navy Windowpane Plaid Flannel features Corridor's three-panel construction for a clean, tailored fit.
Finally, we have the Heavy Grey Flannel. Made from a luxe, super-brushed (and thus unbelievably soft) cotton flannel, this thing seriously feels like if they invented a cotton version of cashmere. It's crazy how soft the Heavy Grey Flannel is. You'll want to sleep in it. Featuring a twill variation weave and the same three-panel construction as our other Corridor offerings, this shirt will serve you well through many falls and winters to come.
