Hamilton shirts have graced the torsos of sartorially-savvy Texans for over 125 years now, ever since a couple of brothers headed out west and launched the Hamilton Shirt Company in Houston in 1883. Hamilton is America’s oldest family-owned shirt-maker and is currently run by fourth-generation members of the family, siblings Kelly and David Hamilton, who are bringing the brand into the 21st century to the acclaim of sharply-suited celebrity fans like Justin Timberlake and Andy Samberg. Each item of clothing is cut by hand from paper patterns and sewn in the Hamilton workshop, using exclusive double-ply Italian and Swiss fabrics and a level of craftsmanship that hearkens to the golden age of clothing manufacturing. Although Hamilton offers a bespoke service, which will provide you with a shirt cut to fit you and you alone, the brand has also recently launched (to much fanfare) a ready-to-wear collection called Hamilton 1883, which includes collaborations with luminaries of the indie fashion world including Nick Wooster of Project Wooster and Canadian retailer Roden Gray.
