MAKING THE: SUMMER SHIRTS

MAKING THE: SUMMER SHIRTS

OUR SHIRT FACTORY IN MANCHESTER, ENGLAND.

In 2017 we renovated part of our factory building in Manchester and launched a Shirting Factory, which also acts as a training academy for new staff. As summer approaches we are excited to announce a range of new fabrics and styles in our shirt collection, including cotton sateen and linen, and shorter sleeve lengths, perfect for the warmer months.

Our shirting is the most automated line in our factory, allowing us to create garments more quickly and efficiently, whilst still retaining handcrafted elements created by some of our most experienced and skilled team members.

Once the patterns are cut, the shirt collars and cuffs are fused at 140 degrees, to help stiffen and retain their shape. The collars on our grandad collar shirt styles are stitched in an automated process with a knife to trim excess fabric. The button fronts and shirt cuffs are formed by an automatic shaper, and our shirt patterns are simplified to allow for minimal seams. For example, on our linen shirts you will notice that each side seam runs straight through from the cuff to the bottom of the shirt. A complex design and construction process that leads to a finished shirt of elegant simplicity and timeless appeal.
