THE ROBERT OLD SHIRT


Robert Old has had a clear vision over the last 100 years or so; to supply our customers with the highest possible quality. Traditionally this was rooted in the tailoring world, when our Great Grandfather Robert Old was the leading Tailor of his day. The world has become progressively more casual now and we have been working hard to enlarge our specialist offer and here we’d like to introduce you to some of the finest casual shirts around.

Building the Shirt...

Before a needle is even lifted there is tireless work to ensure the best possible garment is created, only the best will do if we are to put a Robert Old label on it.

Creating The Fit….

Making our shirts comfortable, soft and timeless is at the forefront of our mind. We have created an easy fitting silhouette that allows for room to move while still holding an aesthetic shape. All Robert Old shirts are crafted using the same measurements so once you find your size the rest is up to you.

Where are they Made…

With a passion for all things English inline with our heritage we scoured the country for the best quality craftsmen for the Robert Old shirt.  The Robert Old team travel deep into the West Country to visit the factory to review and personalise the details of this handcrafted garment.

Sourcing the Cloth…

Possibly the most important step in creating an outstanding shirt is the quality of the cloth. We simply source our fabrics from the finest mills. One of our favourite cloth houses is the revered Alumo. Based in Switzerland they produce a variety of twills, oxfords, superfine cottons and even cashmere-cottons fabrics. During the spring and summer seasons we incorporate  Linens from Ireland as pictured above. Cloth is everything when it comes to the finished product; the moment you wear a Robert Old shirt the cloth quality should become apparent.

The Details...

No stone is left unturned… From the unique shape of our custom Burley button down collar, the careful choice of interlings to the luxurious mother of pearl buttons each garment has its own unique features, the only thing that doesn’t change is our fit.
