Featuring 25 stitches per inch, finished with mother of pearl buttons and crows foot stitching, The Cloakroom’s dress shirts are made in Italy - cut from a range of cloths courtesy of Thomas Mason, Canclini, Albini and Carlo Riva. Available in ready to wear, or made to measure, with the option of hand finished collars, cuffs and buttonholes, The Cloakroom’s dress shirts serve as the perfect backdrop to tailored suits, jackets and leatherwear.
Those looking for quality, style and expedience can shop from a small but sensible collection of ready to wear shirts - made in Italy to the same standards as The Cloakroom’s tailored dress shirts. Whereas those looking to embrace the pleasures of tailoring, can enjoy the sartorial experience that is having shirts tailored.
Men’s Dress Shirts
As with suits, men’s dress shirts should be defined by quality of make, fit and style. They should be crafted with the same precision and attention to detail as suits. They should flatter the figure - effortlessly contouring the shoulders, buttoning perfectly at the waist, and the sleeves should be neither too long nor too short. The collar should be rolled to perfection - giving life to the shirt. The stitching should be fine - tracing each seam with millimetre precision. Fabric should be offset by the natural lustre of mother of pearl buttons. The collar should be generous and elegantly proportioned - framing the face and sitting comfortably under the jacket. It is these subtle nuances that define men’s dress shirts at The Cloakroom - be they tailored or ready to wear.
A range of fabrics - from plain cotton twills to sophisticated stripes - all available in different colours, compositions and weights, is combined with the very best Italian craftsmanship to make business shirts of the highest quality.
Those having business shirts made to measure can take stylistic control over collar and cuff style. Those looking for a more formal business shirt can opt for French cuffs and a spread collar, whereas those looking for comfort and versatility can choose from a range of button cuff openings. Business shirts can also be monogrammed on the cuff, placket or body - a subtle nod to the personal nature of tailoring.
The White Dress Shirt
Simple in style, but complex in craftsmanship, the white dress shirt is the most common shirt for men. Versatile and understated, it can be worn with or without a suit - appropriate for any occasion from formal to casual. The Cloakroom believes that the white dress shirt should form the foundation of the men’s wardrobe; that it is the most important shirt for men.
Shirts for Men
When it comes to shirts for men, there is versatility in variation. Men should have shirts fit for every occasion; from corporate to casual. Working with world renowned fabric makers like Thomas Mason, Canclini, Carlo Riva, Loro Piana, Albini and Alumo, The Cloakroom cuts shirts for men in a range of fabrics - from luxurious twills to distinguished denims; from louche linens to jerseys that are soft and stretchy.
