I have been working since the end 2013 with Thomas Mason and from the beginning I was very satisfied with the result. To tell you a little more, Thomas Mason's Journey range is known for what they call their "Wrinkle Resistant shirt" to be translated as "wrinkle-free shirt". In general, so-called "wrinkle-free" shirts are made because manufacturers add an ammonia-based chemical layer that smothers the cotton in the shirt, making it stiff and rigid.
Here, this is not the case.
The Journey range, as its name suggests, allows the shirt to remain impeccable all day long. And I'll explain why. The Journey collection of Thomas Mason offers innovative fabrics made in the best cottons from Egypt. The special treatment, which maintains the cotton fibres,well parallel to each other,provides a smooth appearance, net and a particular lightness.
Thomas Mason manages to reconcile shirt without ironing and comfortable shirt, by proposing a new type of treatment, on natural fiber. Thomas Mason has developed an innovative treatment that is, natural and respectful of the environment. Cotton fibre is spun in Italy. The same applies to the manufacture of the fabric. The fabric rolls dedicated to the Journey range are then shipped to Belgium where an anti-wrinkle treatment is applied to this fabric.
Elegant and minimalist, it has only one button. I paid particular attention to the circumference of the wrist so that it is not not too wide but keep the necessary comfort.
In making this shirt, I twisted two cotton threads together to form only one. As a result, the fabric is double twisted and therefore particularly resistant.
The cut is adjusted but it will not stick to your body. I made it so you could wear it inside your pants. It is also long enough so that it does not come out of it when you are in motion. I also embroidered reinforcing swallows, in the shape of a pentagon, which remind us of the signatures of the old shirts. They make it possible to reinforce the solidity of the part.
Oxford is a widely used shirt fabric, and is one of the most versatile polyvalent . It is characterized by a fresh and brittle hand, a certain rigidity in the fall and a good hold (froisse peu). Thanks to its finely chequered appearance, oxford is an excellent balance between texture and refinement.
On each of my shirts, I sewed 7 buttons. The first button of the throat is sewn to 6.5 cm from the second button, allowing the neck to fall perfectly. The last buttonhas been sewn horizontally to prevent a small fold from forming above the belt. Sewn in Zampa di Gallina (sewing goose feet), the buttons are mounted on a "foot" making the buttoning of the shirt easier. A button sewn "Zampa di Gallina" style certifies that it has been hand sewn.
Since its creation in Paris more than 21 years, I have been working every day on the design of parts luxurious by searching for the most beautiful materials and by sublimating with a proachable perfection. I remain very attached to a European fabrication of high quality, a guarantee of its success. All our products are made in a traditional way, in a workshop with a human size, formerly a partner of the biggest houses, by passionate workers and in a quest for perfection. Each seamstress perpetuates a mastery of technique and of the rigueur characteristic of the French way.
Each product is made in limited series, which allows you to enjoy yourself by being sure not to see your item worn by someone else. I want to inject a touch of freshness and originality into each of my products through subtle and delicate details. Each item is designed with the aim of bringing you this small plus that makes the difference and gives our products this incomparable charm.
Finally, if you wish to touch up make a touch-up on your shirt (length of sleeves and/or shirt, bending, move the collar button), I suggest you to do it in the workshop before sending or removing your part in store, at your request. All our parts are carefully packed by hand, presenting each item in individual, recyclable boxes with silk leaves.
