When Sam Shipley and Jeff Halmos were part of the Trovata brigade, we instantly liked them. They were funny; they were rumpled; they were hot (yes, fine, admitted); but also: They never apologized for making clothes that kids actually wanted to wear. There was no Trovata bubble skirt and no Trovata chain mail - just miles of cotton that everyone understood. "But is it overrated?" I asked Vogue's Sally Singer one season. "I have khakis too, from The Gap." She explained that my Gap khakis weren't as well built as Trovata's (very true, once I examined them) and that also, some designers (Elbaz, Ghesquiere, Zac) build dresses. And then some of them build brands. Now Sam and Jeff have a new one - Shipley + Halmos. It's all menswear, it's all very controlled, and it's all stuff you'd want a guy to wear when he takes you on a date. We love it, we love Men.Style.Com for showing it in such depth, and we love the designers - Though sadly, we know we're not the only girls in town who do!
