"As Soft & Comfortable As A Second Skin"
The Bespoke Shirt Process
The process starts with a full set of measurements, which include collar, chest, waist, back and front shoulder, hips, sleeve length and general figuration
A pattern is then drafted. A sample shirt is cut and constructed followed by an initial fitting. The final fitting happens after the customer has worn and laundered the shirt several times at which point alterations will be made to the pattern if needed.
All of our shirts are cut and made entirely on-site enabling Sean to be involved in every step of the construction process.
Communication between Sean and the team is essential not only for maintaining quality but also for attention to detail as this is the very essence of bespoke.
Meet Sean O'Flynn
Sean O'Flynn is our Head Shirt Maker and leads a team of dedicated cutter and tailors from 11 Savile Row.
“I started work at Huntsman in 1977. The West-End bespoke trade, at that time, was bustling and vibrant. Soho was a labyrinth of sweatshops and fabric suppliers. The Beatles studio in Savile Row was a place of pilgrimage for tourists and fans alike! One of mypersonal favourite Savile Row celebrities was the late great Tommy Nutter who honoured me with the offer of a job. The essence of Savile Row and West-End bespoke tailoringis the same as it always was with a dedicated team of artisans producing the finest quality garments for the discerning clientele.”
