The $20 Polo That Looks Like It Costs $200 …
By this point, collaborations between high-end fashion designers and low-cost megabrands are as expected as overzealous high-fives in beer commercials. But the polo shirts created for Uniqlo by Michael Bastian, god of Americana luxe, will still have us lined up outside the store when the collection drops on May 20.
The sixteen polos check all the right boxes — rugby and Western detailing, slim-fit, bold colors, throwback Japanese patterns — but each will cost you less than a date night at Chipotle. If you’re looking to freshen up your springtime shirt supply (and you really should be), this is your wallet-friendly jackpot.

Fresh off an incredible F/W 13 collection, our very own Michael Bastian has been nominated for the 2013 CFDA Menswear Designer of the Year award. Bastian, of course, first won the award in 2011.
Please join ‘My Affair’ in wishing MB the best of luck in the days forward.
When Kelly Clarkson croons that “everybody has a dark side,” Michael Bastian certainly does not come to mind. But MB delivered a Fall/Winter collection that showcased a darker side to the designer’s design sensibilities and was complex in its beauty.
Below, a selection of looks from Michael Bastian F/W 13. Overall, a terrific addition to MB’s already-impressive oeuvre.
On Tuesday, February 12, in New York!
Indeed, ‘My Affair’ notes that the garment is consistent with MB’s oft-cited desire to have men step outside of their comfort zone (the sweater is pink).
