We have been creating shirts for more than a half-century. According to the American Express Departures Magazine many consider our bespoke work - all done here in our East Hampton studio - to be the finest available. As you will see, there are many choices for you to make. We're always happy to help. Either Contact Us or call 631-267-7909 with any questions you may have.

Lightweight Irish Linen is the quintessential Summer fabric. Not only is linen the strongest natural plant fiber, but our selected weave of pure Irish linen is one of the most breathable fabrics we offer. Linen has the expected devil-may-care subtly wrinkled appearance. Its affinity for dyes yields bright, non-fading colors. A hard-surfaced fabric when new, linen becomes extraordinarily soft after just a few washings. It is also the fabric used for the traditional Guayabera "wedding" shirt featuring front and rear pleats and either two or four pockets ... as well as the women's version, the Guayabera ShirtDress.

Before ordering, it would be helpful to read our guide to Ordering Bespoke Shirts. Most importantly, consider our free Ready Made to Bespoke Program. This unique program will allow you to order shirts one-at-a-time with each succeeding iteration being better than the previous one ... without going through an extensive fitting process. There is further information below.

To answer the most often asked questions ... each shirt will be hand cut by itself here in our East Hampton studios. It will then be sewn, finished, laundered, and ironed here before getting on its way to you. Each shirt takes us about 12 hours to make and will be delivered in three to six weeks depending upon season and workload. Orders for multiple shirts may be delivered in more than one shipment.

To repeat ... There is a wealth of information here on Bespoke Shirts ordering and making. We strongly advise that you read the information before ordering.

Ready Made to Bespoke Program: This unique no-cost program allows you to order shirts one-at-a-time with each succeeding iteration fitting better than the previous one ... without going through an extensive fitting process. It works quite simply:

  • You order and we make the first shirt. Instead of cutting from our standard patterns, we create an individual paper pattern for you.
  • After wearing and laundering your shirt, you submit four photos to us - Front, Back, Left Side, and Right Side - and any comments you wish to make. Click on the image to see how the photos are done.
  • Using the photos and your comments, we make improvements to your pattern getting it ready for the subsequent shirt.
  • Every time you order, the same process is followed. In our experience, by the third shirt your pattern will be just about perfect.
  • The only requirement to participate is that you agree to order at least one shirt per year to cover the cost of improving and maintaining your individual pattern.
