Cheers to 10 Years of Mizzen+Main 

Dallas-based Mizzen+Main celebrated its 10-year anniversary last month with champagne and cigars outside its flagship West Village store. After launching a decade ago, the preppy men’s store gained popularity, thanks to its unique performance-fabric dress shirts. Since then, it has opened six shops throughout Texas, Oklahoma, and Florida. At the July 28 party, Mizzen+Main raised a toast to the past 10 years, the next decade, and the “naive optimism” (as founder Kevin Lavelle puts it) that put the “best damn dress shirt” on the map.
