Understanding our SHIRTS

THE CONSTRUCTION

"A T&A shirt is made from 34 individual pieces of fine cloth and 13 iridescent mother-of-pearl buttons. Rigorous quality checks are carried out at all stages of the manufacturing process to ensure the finished product is of the highest possible quality."

THE FABRICS
"Our shirts use extra-long Egyptian cotton in soft yet strong two-fold compositions; we have also introduced luxurious West Indian Sea Island cotton – the rarest in the world – to ready-to-wear. Before cutting, each piece of cloth is extensively examined for flaws."

THE WEAVE
"A weave is the way in which threads of cotton - called 'warp' and 'weft' - are fashioned together to make a type of textile. A range of techniques give different materials certain properties; our variety of weaves mean there is a shirt to satisfy everyone's preferences."

THE BUTTONS
"Believing in quality down to the smallest detail, we forgo flimsy plastic buttons in favour of deep-shell Australian mother-of-pearl from ecologically sustained sources. Each button is graded and polished then given a double ring edge and four sewing holes; they are then sewn on with strong crossed-lock stitching to prevent it from ever detaching."
 

THE DESIGN

"It’s not just the material or fit that dictate a shirt's style - it's the finishing details, from the top of the neck to the sleeve’s end. Our seven collar options and trio of cuff choices make dissecting a T&A design a precise and personal experience."

THE COLLAR
"Our collars are non-fused with a woven bias cut interlining for a more organic construction. Instead, we rely on superior materials, construction and craftsmanship to maintain the collar’s shape, obviating the need for a fused construction and thus leaving the material more comfortable for the wearer."

THE CUFFS
"Our shirts offer two main cuff choices. Designed to be worn with cufflinks, Double Cuffs - or French Cuffs - are a formal, flamboyant style exclusively sewn with holes 1”/ 2.5cm from the edge. Button-Down barrel cuffs are a T&A signature thanks to their unique three-button construction; they’re often fastened only at the centre for a style statement."

THE FIT
"Quality fabric, a flawless cut and first-class construction count for nothing if your shirt doesn't fit correctly. It's the first thing that others notice and the last thing you want to get wrong. T&A shirts come in three fits: Regular, Informalist and Slim."
