Us­ing tra­di­tional Bri­tish shirt-mak­ing tech­niques and the best qual­ity Swiss and West In­dian Sea Is­land cot­tons, Emma Wil­lis has, over the course of 30 years, built a rep­u­ta­tion as one of the best in the be­spoke and ready-to-wear busi­ness, her shirts worn by Prince Charles and Daniel Craig among oth­ers. “Our shirts fea­ture sin­gle nee­dle-stitched seams, hand-trimmed col­lar points be­fore turn­ing for a sharp, flat point, matched pat­terns at seams, tiny stitches and real mother of pearl cross-stitched but­tons,” Wil­lis says. “That’s what makes them spe­cial.”

An em­pire founded on ex­quis­ite writ­ing in­stru­ments, Mont­blanc has ex­panded into a lux­ury, mul­ti­hy­phen­ate mai­son with a world­wide rep­u­ta­tion for watch­mak­ing, ac­ces­sories and, with its 1926 Her­itage range, some of the finest leather pro­duc­tion in the busi­ness — all cut, stitched and sewn in its ded­i­cated ar­ti­san work­shop in Florence. “By us­ing tra­di­tional Tus­can veg­etable-tanned leather,” says the brand’s creative di­rec­tor Zaim Ka­mal, “each piece will age beau­ti­fully with a patina unique to its owner.”
