At Lodge & King we are proud to produce all of our bespoke shirts using only Tessitura Monti S.p.A and Pontelambro Italian fabrics. The current Lodge & King collection has been carefully selected from Monti's ‘Dogi il pronto’ range and Pontelambro's latest collection. All are two-fold premium Egyptian cotton, woven in Italy, with an average thread count of 100+.
Your shirt will be hand tailored using the following techniques, ensuring an exceptional standard of construction and quality:
- Hand cut and tailored to your individual measurements
- Four piece collars with detachable bones
- Hand sewn, cross stitched buttons
- 20 stitches per inch in sewing construction
- Fabric patterns are matched across the shirt and especially from the split yoke to the sleeve
- Matching sleeve pleats and fabric which is cut on the grain to prevent twisting
- All arm seams finished with french binding and interlocking for extra strength
- All have front button plackets for that more formal or business look
Lodge & King Shirt Options
Picking your favourite bespoke shirt comes down to individual taste and preference and at Lodge & King we offer a number of options for constructing the style of shirt that best suits you.
Although our bespoke shirts are specifically made to measure we offer three different styles of body fit:
- Our 'Standard Fit' follows the line of your body without providing unwanted excess fabric. It allows room to move while still looking unmistakably "made to measure".
- Our 'Generous Fit' is also cut and tailored to match your physique while still allowing for a more generous amount of movement and additional comfort. It is perfect for a larger frame.
- Our ‘Slim Fit’ is closely cut to match your body, with just the right amount of room for movement and comfort.
Lodge & King offer two collar options to suit your personal preference:
- Our 'Classic Collar' is a traditional collar worn with a classic tie knot. It has a 2.75" collar point and a 1 1/2" collar band.
- Our 'Cut-Away Collar' otherwise known as a Windsor is a stiff collar with a wide spread space between the points to accomodate a windsor knot. It has a 3 1/4" collar point and a 1 1/2" collar band.
Lodge & King offer two cuff options:
- The standard 'Double-Button' or the 'French Cuff', which is traditionally made to be worn with cufflinks. Both are 2.75 inches in length.
We offer the above styles as standard, however we are more than happy to provide any style and size collar and cuffs you would like. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
For those who prefer a more traditional look, Lodge & King also offer the 'Winchester', consisting of a standard white collar and cuff option worn against any one of our 46 fabrics.
All these options will be provided to you throughout the ordering process. We hope you enjoy our bespoke shirts as much as we do.
