What Makes Our Formal Shirts Special?6th November 2018
Shirtmakers since 1938, we’ve dedicated 80 years of our time, effort and craftsmanship to construct a selection of men’s formal shirts that every gentleman wants to wear. But what makes them so special?
- The Construction
Made from 100% cotton using a variety of luxurious weaves, a Savile Row shirt is the epitome of everyday luxury. Ideal for work or weekend, each style has been finished with taped seams which creates a pristine finish that will remain even after many washes. In addition, rigorous quality checks are carried out throughout the shirt-making process to ensure every formal shirt is not only of the highest quality, but also built to last.
- The Collars
Although we’ve vowed to never share our collar-making secrets, we can confirm that each of our formal shirts come with a curl-resistant collar that has been made using a unique garment process. From cutaway to Windsor, you’ll find a variety of collar styles that are suitable for every occasion.
- The Fit
We understand that one size does not fit all – so that’s why we offer two fits (classic and slim), as well as a made-to-measure shirt service which allows customers to create a shirt that fits to their body shape perfectly.
- The Expertise
A rich history of tailoring and shirtmaking has been passed down through generations and instilled in every shirt we make. Today, we remain the same family-run business as when we started out, and retain all of the principles that one would expect from such an enterprise.
- The Better Cotton Initiative
The Savile Row Company is an active supporter of the Better Cotton Initiative, and our latest selection of formal shirts have been made using 100% BCI cotton.
A non-profit organisation, BCI helps farmers to grow cotton – reducing stress on the local environment and improving the livelihoods and welfare of farming communities worldwide. They invest in training for cotton farmers to improve water usage and reduce the amount of chemicals that they use – making it better for the environment and safer for the people who produce it.
