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.

Safari Jackets ... the name is misleading. They're quite trendy-cool and definitely not for only African jaunts. Utilitarian. Wooden-buckle belted design. A slew of expandable bellows pockets. Vented rear panel and/or shoulders and/or sleeves for air circulation if desired. Vents are creating by using a color-compatible cotton mesh fabric for the selected parts. Your choice of beautiful horn (as on the white), Mother-of-Pearl, abalone shell (see the tan example), or leather buttons. The selection of collars includes the point collar on the white shirt, the two-point collar on the tan & grey examples, or a simple band collar. Available cuffs are the square or hexagonal cornered button cuffs and the semi-rounded Joelle cuff. Your choice of pockets ... but it is at it's best with all four. A three-season jacket excellent for Spring & Fall and perfect for cool Summer nights.

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.
