Technical garments are no longer just for athletic endeavors. Performance fabrics and materials are finding themselves in just about every facet of apparel — that includes office and dress wear. Johnston & Murphy developed the XC4 performance apparel line to ensure you’re never without those advantages of technical materials: superior fit, exceptional comfort, wrinkle-free capabilities and moisture management. The XC4 line runs the gamut from head-to-toe for a selection of styles that fit any situation. With the four essential XC4 items below, Johnston & Murphy packs plenty of superior performance while bringing all the qualities of stylish threads.
XC4 Solid Blazer
Blazers are the backbone of office wear. The XC4 Solid Blazer is made of 100 percent poly oxford, a fabric typically used in workwear for its durable qualities. In the XC4 Solid Blazer the material offers wrinkle resistance, breathability, moisture wicking capabilities and better movement. Interior underarm gussets help increase mobility while the 100 percent poly quick-dry Aerocool/mesh partial lining manages moisture to keep you feeling and looking fresh.
XC4 Quad Track Windowpane Shirt
The proper amount of stretch in a dress shirt can be difficult to achieve. Too much stretch and it feels like you’re wearing a shirt meant for training. Johnston & Murphy’s XC4 Quad Track Windowpane Shirt is 100 percent cotton and is made with a special weaving technique to provide an easy stretch that doesn’t overdo it. It offers a crisp windowpane pattern and is easy to care for with a non-iron finish for lasting wrinkle resistance. It’s a dress shirt you can rely on day in and day out.
XC4 Reversible Quarter-Zip
A quarter-zip with a middle-of-the-road weight is already a versatile item you need in your wardrobe. The XC4 Reversible Quarter-Zip takes it one step further by presenting a great two-in-one option that can travel well and fit any need. It’s made of 47 percent rayon, 47 percent poly and 6 percent spandex for the optimal wrinkle-resistance and moisture-wicking stretch that’s soft to the touch.
XC4 Prentiss Shoe
Office appropriate shoe choices have evolved to include elevated sneakers. Johnston & Murphy’s XC4 Prentiss Shoe is no ordinary sneaker though — it uses a super soft waterproof leather for superior abilities handling the elements. The Prentiss includes a neoprene stretch bootie lining to further ensure your feet will always be dry. The sleek athletic styling also includes superior cushioning with an EVA midsole. Also made in a high-performance knit, the XC4 Prentiss Shoe is the sneaker upgrade that’ll go with anything.
