Sustainable and Eco-Responsible shirts of exceptional quality
Repairing and refreshing
We make shirts to last. When you get quality, colours do not fade, fabrics do not pill or fray nor do they expend, shrink or change.
The bespoke shirts we make for you will last many years, always looking fresh. Our customers are often amazed by the difference between bespoke tailoring and fast fashion. There is no comparison, even with many branded items, and you will see your tailored shirts remain beautiful while other of your fashion items fade.
Quality products mean less waste, smaller environmental impact and are particularly sustainable in the long term. Best of all, you get to influence positively on the environment by spending less world resources without compromising on style, fit or quality.
We care about being part of a sustainable future and this is why we replace the elements of your shirt that age faster: collars and cuffs.
Because they are more likely to rub against surfaces, shirt collars and cuffs sometimes age after many years of service. We always keep the remnants of material we use for your shirts and add them to our file, no matter if you come every 2 years or every 12 years, we will be safekeeping what we need for future repairs. We can also give you the extra fabric for safekeeping or other projects.
If ever you need either collar, cuffs, or both to be replaced, we will be happy to do that for you. We will use matching material or can also use contrasting fabrics for a modern look.
