‘Made In Britain’ is the new range of designer shirts offered by Manchester based fashion brand Blake Mill. The brand has selected exclusive designs for this collection which is being custom tailored by expert shirt makers Dooley & Rostron. The shirts are already proving popular with customers looking for a personalised fit and/or features like French cuffs, a spread collar or a shorter body for wearing untucked.
Clients are professionally measured up during an appointment arranged by Blake Mill’s made to measure concierge at venues in London, Manchester and New York.
What makes these shirts truly stand out is the fact that they are fully made in Britain starting with artistic design right through to final tailoring. Completely unique to these shirts is the fact that they are made of some of the best cotton in the world which is spun into yarn at the only operational cotton mill in Britain. The fabric is beautifully woven in a mill North of Manchester and the designs are printed with the most modern and environmentally friendly equipment available.
It was whilst developing their “made to measure” concept that Blake Mill’s team connected with the newly retooled cotton mill in outer Manchester which happens to be one of the most modern mills in the world. After some research – they discovered that it would be possible to make the shirts from cotton spun at the mill resulting in a truly exclusive, quintessentially English range of high-end shirts.
'There is great demand for luxury menswear worldwide,' Ken Price, CEO said. ‘Our Made in Britain range will soon also be offered as a ready to wear collection. This will be available globally to discerning customers who want to try out our modern take on exclusively British quality and style. We are very excited about helping to re-establish Britain in the global fashion market, whilst also supporting the local economy in Manchester where the industrial revolution began.’
Customers interested in the made to measure service are able to order their shirts online. A Blake Mill concierge representative will be in contact within 2 business days to arrange for a personal fitting in Manchester, London or New York where all their specific details will be logged. Within 4 weeks the customer is invited for a fitting, where final adjustments can be made and they will be presented with their truly exclusive, custom made Blake Mill shirt.
