Reward Dollars You will earn 28.00 Member Reward Dollars for buying this product.

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.

We offer many different fabric qualities ranging from SuperFine two-ply 100s to Royal Cotton two-ply 240s. These are the finest Swiss and Italian fabrics in existence. On this page we feature 2x2 170's. Alexander's preferred broadcloth since its debut in 1980, the 170s are super-soft without the thinness of higher counts which tend to wrinkle more easily. Durability is never an issue here. Kabbaz likes to show the pink shirt he made in 1982. Laundered more than 300 times, looks like new, and still worn regularly ... but in complete honesty it received a new collar and cuffs in 2006. Though we show only a few fabric selections, Alexander's love for this cloth has grown our inventory to hundreds of patterns. If you don't see what you want, just ask.

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.

How to order:

  • If both solid colors and patterned fabrics are offered in your chosen quality, select either from the Fabric Type dropdown list.
  • Click the fabric thumbnail image to enlarge and choose your cloth(s). Type the number(s) of your selection(s) in the Fabric Number box.

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.
