They’re wearing SHRT, the new capsule collection of customized shirts designed in collaboration with Bespoken.Best known for its brand of unstudied, Anglo-American polish, the New York-based brand already has one of the best looking go-to collections for spring and a recent partnership with J. Lindeberg. Now it’s added SHRT, a custom shirt program created in partnership with Warby Parker co-founder Neil Blumenthal, Fat Radish owner Phil Winser, and entrepreneur-cum-DJ Brendan Fallis. Each tastemaker worked with the founders of Bespoken, Liam and Sam Fayed, to create three impeccably styled shirts all made in the UK.“We love the concept and what it stands for,” said Liam. “All of these guys are innovators in their own right and it’s interesting to bring different elements into our design process. We’re excited to see how our customers react to the launch and the product, and if it’s something they want to see more of, we’d definitely want to continue giving that back.”Related: Meet Up Mondays: Bespoken. As expected, the best features of SHRT are in the details. Fayed, for example, offered Blumenthal a subtle short point collar update to Bespoken’s classic button-down collar, as well as a concealed microfiber cloth for cleaning glasses on the go, while for Winser’s slimmer, button-down silhouette with jersey sleeves he added a hidden passport and boarding pass chest pocket. Fallis’s streamlined shirt, meanwhile, sports a signature Bespoken point collar but mixes a light poplin body with an Oxford cloth sleeve for a quietly trangressive edge.“Working together with people who care about details and quality as much as I do was a really fulfilling project,” said Fallis, while Winser praised the functionality of his design. “Working with a tailor that comes from such incredible heritage and craftsmanship keeping within tradition but adapting to the modern day man allowed me to create a shirt that was perfectly tailored to the service industry. I wish I could do a whole collection with them.” Here’s to the future of sharper, everyday work shirts indeed. SHRT shirts are $195-225 and available at Bespoken’s website and on Spring, the mobile app.  Photo credit: Kat Irlin.center_img Editors’ Recommendations 1. Phil Winser 2. Neil Blumenthal 3.

Security Council voices support for incoming Burundi Government

“The installation of a broad-based government on the basis of an internationally sanctioned peace process makes armed rebellion an unacceptable means of political expression,” the Council said in its statement, read out by its President, Ambassador Jean-David Levitte of France. He called on the Forces for National Liberation (FNL) and the Forces for the Defence of Democracy (FDD), together with the Burundi Government, to strictly observe the rights of the civilian population and other provisions of international humanitarian law.The Council also called on all countries, particularly those in the region, to stop all forms of support to the FLN and the FDD, and urged all Member States to encourage the armed groups to join the peace process. Additionally, the Council asked for the States of the Regional Initiative to mark the installation of the transitional government by further enhancing their bilateral and regional cooperation with the new government. In its statement, the Council appealed to the Burundian parties to quickly reach agreement on the establishment of a special protection unit entrusted solely with the police function of providing personal security for politicians returning from exile. It welcomed the convening of a pre-implementation stakeholders meeting in Arusha, Tanzania, and urged the international community to provide urgently support for the training and deployment of that special protection unit. The Council also called on donors to increase humanitarian assistance to Burundi and to accelerate its delivery. read more
