Our versatile detachable collar shirts are a smart medium between ready-to-wear and bespoke. Inspired by the methods used in Edwardian times which allowed collars to be removed, laundered and stiffly starched, the wearer can create three different looks from one design. Each of our shirts come with a rounded Gordon collar – an ode to the vintage era of inspiration – alongside a Classic T&A collar to cater for both sharp and soft ensembles. The modern man can also remove the neck piece for a more relaxed, minimalist look.
T&A shirts are handmade in our Gloucester factory, using hand-worked sewing machines operated by seamstresses with a wealth of experience. The patterns are cut from the highest quality cotton, with the separate pieces expertly brought together to create the final design. We finish the shirt with ethically sourced mother-of-pearl buttons, which are thermally fused to ensure they never loosen with wear. With the detachable collar shirts, there is a button fastening at the back of the collar-stand and a traditional brass stud at the front to attach the shirt collar to the shirt stand which is attached to the main body of the shirt.
