Finally, A Homegrown Site Stocking Your New 9-to-5 Staples
MAONO, a lifestyle brand launched in 2011 with the mission of supplying worker bees with high-quality staples — think blazers, button-up blouses, skirts, pants, and small leather goods. Catering to men and women, MAONO combines commerce with philanthropy, donating five percent of proceeds to Casas Taiguara and the Boys & Girls Club of Santa Monica. The brand is helmed by local real estate pro and former government employee Syga Thomas, who collaborates with designers and manufacturers to expand the collection piece-by-piece — which means you'll find new items on the site from week to week. We've done your homework for you and pulled together our favorites from the site's current offerings (including a to-die-for ivory blazer) — click through for the cheat sheet.
