According to Richard Harvie, owner of Harvie & Hudson, “The white shirt remains the best seller in St James’s”. At Turnbull & Asser nearly half of all shirts sold, both ready to wear and bespoke, are white.

Every design element of the shirt including collar, cuffs, buttons, shape and fit can be created to the specification of the most discerning gentleman.
