Spectre & Co., a new Westchester-based e-commerce startup, was founded in early 2013 with one goal in mind: to make luxury-quality, slim fit dress shirts available to the fashion-conscious man at extremely affordable prices. “Men are learning to dress better and better everyday, and menswear has never been as big as it is right now,” says Jeffrey Zhang, founder of Spectre & Co. “But, the one thing that hasn’t really improved much, at least when it comes to high-quality shirting, is price. Our demographic is the man that loves quality menswear, but isn’t always willing to spend $150, $100, or even $75 on that perfect dress shirt.”
That’s where Spectre & Co. comes in. The majority of the retailer’s offerings are under $50, with free shipping in the United States and free returns for first-time customers. “I love the menswear revolution, and it’s fantastic that men are taking the time to improve their appearances, but at times, it’s not the most price-accessible of movements. We want to make it so that even the most budget-conscious guy can afford quality shirting that fits.”
Spectre & Co.’s 100% cotton, high thread count shirts come in a standard slim fit measured by neck and sleeve, and are constructed with less fabric in the torso and waist to prevent billowing for a look that is both stylish and comfortable. The company’s ownership of production and distribution without third parties or middlemen keeps the lines of communication clear and creates value that the end consumer can see. The company also believes in responsible sourcing. Using skilled local artisans instead of laborers, Spectre & Co. has over 100 years of combined experience in the garment industry, with pedigrees in the design and production team from renowned shirtmakers such as Ascot Chang.
