The Find: Bergamo New York Dress Shirts
Browsing for fitted/slim dress shirts I came across this brand that I have never heard of before. The shirts were marked on clearance (I bought two) at $10 and $7. So are they worth it? Well, the shirts were a cotton/poly blend (60/40) for wrinkle-free ease. And well, they look like most white dress shirts do ... check that - ALL white dress shirts do.
Some background research on the Bergamo brand revealed that the brand was trademarked in 2004 by the Peacock Apparel Group, Inc (more). Bergamo New York does not appear to have a web presence of their own, but the quick Google search on the Peacock Apparel Group turns up that the brand was classified as SECTION 8 & 15 accepted and acknowledged as of July 15, 2010 making it is a relatively new brand. In addition to dress shirts, the brand makes ties, tuxedo shirts, pants and pocket squares.
What I can attest to is that the fit is very modern. The length is perfect for wearing untucked on weekends and the slim fit is very contoured for an athletic build.
A find for its price and fit. Look for the collection at discount houses such as TJ Max, Ross, and Marshall's. Also available online.
