Over the years, we have worked hard to perfect our fits and put our contemporary signature on a traditional shirt.
We have worked closely with our loyal customers to create a faultless shirt, sourcing only the finest fabrics from the finest mills in Italy.
Our clients come back season after season to replenish their wardrobe with their favourite staple, or update it with one of our new, seasonal fabrics.

The Mr. Start Fits
We have a slim fit and a casual fit. The design features are what differentiates them from each other.
The Slim fit
This style has been so popular, we created this in four versions, what differentiates them is the change in cuff, collar and placket. But the fit through the body always stays the same.
The Ritz shirt is our most formal shirt, it has the stiffest collar with top stitching detail, a mitred cuff to give your shirt a stylish edge, and a sharp, topstitched placket.

Philip says wear with a Mr. Start silk tie for a formal event.
The Drake is a more versatile option than the Ritz. It does every occasion, casual, formal, or somewhere in between. The Drake shirt features a bluff collar with no topstitching, a rounded cuff and a French placket with minimal detail.

Wear with your suit, or for a less formal occasion, remove the collar stiffeners for a softer, more contemporary look. Can also be worn buttoned up with no tie, for a cool, current look.
The Zetter has a rounded collar with edge stitching, a french front placket and rounded cuffs. A modern take on a classic shirt.

Wear with a slim tie for a contemporary look, perfect in Shoreditch.
The bower is our simplest shirt that suits every occasion, it has the smallest collar with fine edge stitching, a straight cuff and french front placket.
Philip says wear with a bold suit to soften the look
The Truman shirt is a more casual shirt, whilst still having a slimming silohette, it has no darts in the back meaning it is roomier than the above slim fits. The Truman shirt has a great range of fabrics introduced season on season and never fails to impress our clients.
Philip says wear with a tshirt underneath and the shirt worn open for a more casual look or wear with a tie to create an interesting contrast with our fun, seasonal fabrics
The Curtain features a button down collar. Made in a beautifully lightly textures woven two fold cotton, this shirt never disappoints. A natural fit with a box pleat at the back means it can we worn formally and casually, with comfort in mind at all times.
Philip says wear with anything – it works with any outfit!
