BEHIND THE COLLECTION
Inspired by London
London is an anomaly when it comes to menswear. While the rest of the world succumbs to mass production and fast fashion, it remains one of the few places with an abundance of historic purveyors devoted to bespoke goods for men. On the streets of Mayfair and St. James, tailors and artisans survive and thrive in the shadow of big-box brands, continuing their rich history of craftsmanship above quantity.
At Hugh & Crye, we’re shirtmakers looking to preserve the thoughtfulness and novelty that these London shops have upheld for centuries. The Professionals Collection, a series of elegant dress shirts named after bustling streets in London, is a tribute to a city that epitomizes timeless style and tailored fit. Designed with a traditional semi-spread collar and cut from 100% Egyptian cotton sourced from Italy, these shirts are refined staples in blue and white. Back darts and our signature tapered cut ensure that these professional shirts fit close to custom.
The Professionals Collection was photographed on the streets (and rooftops) of Kalorama, a historic neighborhood of Washington, DC, known for its European architecture and diplomatic residences.
