Gentlemen, are you tired of burning holes in your dress shirts with the iron? Or burning a hole in your pocket from dry-cleaning bills? If so, your problem is now solved! Fred and Jeremy interview Kevin Lavelle who started Mizzen+Main, a company who took performance fabrics to a new level with their moisture wicking, wrinkle-free dress shirts; something we think would be a great addition to any gentleman's travel wardrobe.
