If it fits your style persona a well-fitting button-down shirt can be a versatile staple in your wardrobe. A view that is shared by New Factory, Friend, a San Francisco based company that aims to integrate contemporary style with socially responsible practices. They launched their first line of women’s dress shirts and wrap shirts in 2009, and all items are manufactured in the United States:

“Like those in the Slow Food movement, New Factory, Friend is part of the Slow Fashion movement. Things are made the old-fashioned way: small batches of well-made shirts, made with the same small group of people. New Factory, Friend produces everything domestically and works to make most of what they offer a sustainable choice that makes customers feel good when they put it on.”

Max Schroder, the company’s founder, was inspired by Angie’s recent casual take on the button-down and is kindly offering to give away one white button-down shirt. The winner can choose between the Classic White Shirt, with shaped cuffs and a single breast pocket, and the Modern White Shirt, with long cuffs and double overlapping collar.
