Your work attire is the most important section of your wardrobe. Not only do you spend more time at work then your free time, but work is also where impressions really count.

Within the last two years, Spectre & Co. has grown to become much more than just a shirting company. What started out as just an online store for affordable shirting has grown into a full-fledged menswear business with offerings in accessories, outerwear, and leather goods. However, our roots have always been in quality men's shirting, and that has not changed.
