Concierge Camp Collar, Cabernet/Routine
The Concierge Camp Collar is a perfect summer weight button down. The fabric is a nice lightweight crêpe poly with a defined texture and a comfortable hand feel. The Cabernet panels add both visual interest and structure. It’s also machine washable and easy to steam, so no need to stress yourself out trying to keep it clean. Put it in the dark wash though so you don't end up dying all of your whites pink like I did.
The Concierge Camp Collar was the first cut and sew item I designed for the brand nearly 2.5 years ago. This piece truly epitomizes the Transparent Hotel vibe and aesthetic. It’s a modern take on a vintage style with luxury construction details at a reasonable price point. I always picture a diner waitress or a hotel staff member rocking this while providing exceptional customer service. The Concierge Camp Collar features two breast pockets and chain stitch embroidery on the left chest.
If we’re talking in generalizations I’d say the shirt is slightly oversized, but pictures speak louder than words, so I brought in a bunch of people with different builds, skin tones and styles and asked them to wear each size. I’m hoping this will help you envision how the shirt will look on you and which size you should go with to get your desired look. This is a concept I plan on continuing for every product forever, because I’d rather give you this instead of “The model is 6’10, 120 pounds and wears a Large”.
Price and Manufacturing Breakdown:
The shirt was manufactured in China. This same factory makes clothes for Palace and Only NY. They're absolute pros and have been a pleasure to work with. We went through 3 rounds of samples to perfect all of the details, which cost $528 all said and done.
The bulk order was for 104 units at $29 each ($2994 total) plus $726 shipping and $994 tariffs. This is my first time running into tariffs and they're absolutely crippling.
The photoshoot was $75 per style.
All said and done I’m in for $5317, or $51 a unit. My pricing is set up for wholesale, so the mark up has to be at a place where both the retailer and I can make money. I'm hoping to figure out how to lower shipping and import fees, and when I'm able to I'll pass the savings along to you, boy scouts promise.
As always, if you have any questions about the designing or manufacturing processes, my line is always open.
Not doing hand delivery because it is a pain in the ass but if you know you’re going to see me soon and don’t want to pay for shipping just text me.
