If there is one thing that can ruin a quality shirt, it is a cheap plastic button. The buttons are a testament to quality. We only work with the most exclusive materials, delivered from the best producers in Australia. A button made out of mother-of-pearl is 100 times more expensive than a plastic button. They are a testament of quality and I really like the luster of them.
But there are other things that make the shirt perfect. Take the button holes for example. They need to be thoroughly stitched, to make them sturdy and sustainable. The distance between the button holes can’t be too long, we don’t want the belly to fall out. When stitching the button, we add a small ”neck” to it, which makes the fabric less strained and the shirt fall beautifully.
As for collar stays, it is a matter of taste. In most formal shirts they are sewn in to the collar. In other styles we have removable stays, but I tend to throw them out on my softer shirts. Again, we want to be correct, but not too correct. Before we deliver our shirts, we always iron them and pack them by hand.
