Alexander West on Gift Genius

January 1st, 2009 Comments off

Alexander West is recommended by Gift Genius.

“Your boyfriend has arrived to one too many nice events in a ratty old ironic T-shirt, so give him (and yourself) the gift of an Alexander West custom-tailored shirt. Each shirt is made with premium cottons, including Egyptian and Sea Island cotton, mother of pearl buttons, and hand-stitched monogramming. Just send his measurements, choose the style and color, and blammo: he’ll look dashing, and you can introduce him to your parents without being embarrassed by his “Honk if you’re going to run over me” T-shirt.”
