The Beauty of a SPIER & MACKAY Shirt
The Best Tailors
Every single shirt we make follows a traditional HANDMADE process from the cutting of the cloth to the attaching of the buttons. Each step is meticulously crafted by the finest shirt tailors and tradesmen. Unlike most brands that outsource production, we have our own production facility and we can proudly refer to ourselves as “shirt makers”.
Our team of highly skilled tailors each have a minimum 10 years of specific shirt making experience. And each is capable of drafting the raw pattern, cutting, sewing and finishing an individual shirt on their own. They are shirt makers through and through – and they pride themselves on that.
All our shirts are constructed using traditional English tailoring techniques. This includes a true handmade sewing process. The entire shirt is sewn on a single needle machine controlled by a highly-skilled tailor.
All of our shirts have complete pattern matching where patterns are matched and flow from one panel to the next.
All of our buttons are created 3 mm thick and are made of natural oyster shell. This gives them a beautiful natural luster and shine that can`t be duplicated by a plastic synthetic button.
Solids or Stripes? How about a handsome check? Better yet, a beautifully elegant tonal textured weave. Whatever your tastes and needs our vast range of luxury shirting fabrics have you covered. We start by sourcing from some of the finest mills from countries that have rich heritage in shirt textiles such as Italy, Switzerland, Turkey and India. Then we only select a highly edited collection that meet our high standards ensuring each fabric is beautifully patterned, richly dyed and yields a luxuriously soft hand. Utilizing only 100% Extra Long Staple Egyptian Giza Cotton and woven into two-ply constructions of 80’s, 100’s, 120’s and 140’s, with occasional 170’s and 200’s in the mix.
