DKNY collaborates with British shirt-maker Thomas Pink

DKNY + Pink (2) DKNY and Thomas Pink, the famous British shirt-maker, have teamed up for a capsule collection of limited-edition tailored shirts — set to hit stores at the end of September. 

The collection consists of three timeless, button-front styles: a tuxedo shirt, a classic tailored shirt and a loose-fitting (or "boyfriend") button-front shirt. 

The white, cotton, stretch, pin-tucked tuxedo shirt, which feels very retro-'80s "Working Girl," will retail for $195 at DKNY stores,, Bloomingdales, Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue.

The classic button-down, which has been updated with a modern nipped-in-at-the-waist fit, comes in white, charcoal with white stripes, French blue with white stripes and purple with white stripes; it will be available at Neiman Marcus and DKNY stores for $185.

The cotton-stretch loose-fit shirt — which would be adorable paired with skinny jeans and loads of gold jewelry — comes in three striped fabrics and features French cuffs. It will set you back $185 at DKNY stores and exclusively.

Thomas Pink, which is famous for its crisp, impeccable fit, was founded in 1984 by three Irish brothers, James, Peter and John Mullen, who wanted to reinvent the traditional Jermyn Street shirt (where traditional British shirt-making began).

The brand was named after an 18th century London tailor known for making coveted red hunting jackets. If you were lucky enough to score one, you were said to be "in the pink."
