When you look into your wardrobe, you’ll probably be bombarded by the number of T-Shirts sitting on the shelves or on hangers. T-Shirts are easily the most versatile piece of clothing that any man can own, they’re easy to style and even easier to wear. However, the simplicity of this garment is, in itself, a problem as the sheer variety of styles and materials available to you make it all too easy to get sidetracked by style over substance when shopping for a fresh Tee.
Usually a T-Shirt is a very cheap and easy option for us to buy because typically they are cheap to produce. Our T-Shirts were specifically designed to be different. Every one of our T-shirts is cut, sewn and finished here in the UK from artisan small makers who care as much about the quality of the finished product, as our tailors do about our luxury tweed suits. This is why our T-Shirts may cost a little more, but as with all our styles, you can tell it’s right as soon as you put it on, and will last for years to come…
With such a staple item it’s extremely important that you look for quality in the T-Shirts that you buy. Something that doesn’t fade in the wash or come apart at the seams from overuse – if you love wearing a certain T-Shirt then you want it to last and to look like new every time you wear it. When faced with the option of purchasing a T-Shirt most people would rather spend no more than £20 thinking it’s simply not worth it. They love that T-Shirt and wear it over and over again, that is until it stretches or fades in the wash. At Garrison Tailors we want to change that, we believe there are a few good reasons why your t-shirts should only be luxury ones!
Firstly, and most importantly it should be ethically made. Period: The textile industry is the second most polluting industry after oil, did you know that?
From harvesting and farming the raw materials to manufacturing, shipping to ultimately, disposal – the fashion industry has a huge impact on the environment. That is why now, more than ever you should be thinking very seriously about the way your clothes are made and the longevity of your wardrobe. At Garrison Tailors we are taking a stand against the rise of disposable fashion, we make clothes with quality and kindness that last.
The design of our T-Shirts is simple, but the choice of fabric is anything but. We chose the very best long length cotton fibers for our yarn, which in turn produces a luxury feeling and stable fabric when knitted. That’s why our T-Shirts are made from 100% combed cotton material. Combed cotton is an extremely soft version of cotton made by specially treating the cotton fibers before they are spun into yarn giving our T-Shirts both longevity and strength. It’s the same material that we use for our Henley Shirts so quality is assured and fans of the Henley’s will love our newest casual additions to our Peaky Blinders inspired clothing range.
