A crisp and considered shirt is the most important compliment you can pay to a well cut suit. At Edward Sexton, we believe that you should devote as much time to shirtmaking as to tailoring, and our capsule collection of ready-to-wear shirts offers customers the opportunity to invest in shirts which are made with the utmost attention to craft and style.
All our shirts are cut in superior two-ply super 100s Italian cotton satin. We use only single-stitched seams to avoid puckering, with delicate swelled edges finishing each collar. We have also developed a set-in sleeve for our shirts. Following the principles of a bespoke jacket, this keeps the front of the shirt clean and allows the shirt-sleeve to be pitched perfectly.
We keep our shirt collars slightly taller than normal with deep points which frame the face beautifully, drawing influence from the sharp geometric lines of art-deco menswear. This also creates a balanced relationship between shirt-collar, tie-blade and lapels. Every shirt is available in signature Sexton tab and pin-collar styles designed to lift a tie from the neck for an expressive flourish. Our understated house look depends upon a concise palette of classic plains and stripes, so a selection of soft blues, white and cream forms an elegant base for your Sexton suiting.
