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.
Having had the privilege of creating Leonard Bernstein's "conducting" shirts for decades, we developed an extensive collection of formal shirt front bib designs. Although there are only a dozen or so bib-fabrics pictured here, we have more than 100 available styles. We're happy to send photos or swatches if you want something out of the ordinary. Our preferred cloths are the 170s voiles which offer a high degree of coolness under the usually warm tux or tails. There are a number of other options to select, all of which can be seen in the images. If you desire further information Contact Us for details about the range of available options.
If you are ordering for White Tie, remember that the only acceptable bib front is the Birdseye Pique (or one of our other rare pique styles). Pleats are not used for White Tie shirts which must also have a Wing Collar and Single Link cuffs.
By the way, make no mistake ... pleated front shirts are spectacular for the distaff with or without a jacket!
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.
