Making bespoke shirts is close to our heart, and we have been doing this with great passion since 1952. Our bespoke shirts are handcrafted by our expert shirt makers in our own atelier at Noordeinde in The Hague.
In fact, Ettemadis has been recognized by the renowned Thomas Mason mill as the leading tailoring-house in the Netherlands.
From cutting the fabric to making the very high-quality bespoke shirts, we oversee all aspects of the manufacturing process at our atelier Noordeinde. This allows us to provide the very best fit and finish for the demanding man.
We take 25 specific body measurements, taking into account your posture and any other requirements you may have. We will then discuss your preferences and special requests with you. As you are the designer, you can have all elements of the bespoke shirt made to your personal liking. We have over 25 collar and cuff options, different monogram styles, collar linings and mother-of-pearl buttons. We also give our advice based on your preferences. We ensure that the end result of the shirt is exactly what you have in mind.
We use your measurements to cut the fabric by hand in our atelier at Noordeinde. We also keep a paper pattern of your measurements. Our experienced shirtmakers will now get to work with your shirt. We follow the manufacturing process thoroughly and carefully work out the specific requests. Your bespoke shirt is meticulously made using traditional craftmanship.
Thanks to our expertise in measuring and making bespoke shirts, we ensure that the fit and quality of your shirts are impeccable. We guarantee perfection.
We don’t let you leave with a shirt until you are completely satisfied. We store your measurements and requests on a paper template. That makes it easy for follow-up orders; which you can even do remotely.
Few experiences are more rewarding than putting on a fresh, beautiful bespoke shirt made just for you. Thanks to our accurate measurements, exclusive fabrics and your personal preferences and requests, each bespoke shirt is unique.
The delivery time for our bespoke shirts is generally within four weeks. Is it urgent? Then this can also be done within a few days. Please make sure to let us know immediately.
You can of course always visit our atelier to see how your shirt is being made.
Our Egyptian cotton tailored shirts are made from very fine and exclusive Egyptian cotton fabrics, woven in Italy. Cotton from Egypt has the quality of being really soft, with superior breath ability and an appearance that will not change over time.
Sea Island cotton is the ultimate choice for the true enthusiast. It has an unparalleled softness and feels like a second skin. This cotton is mainly grown in the tropical climates of Barbados, Antigua and Jamaica. Fabrics made from this cotton have a silky soft, yet firm, surface. In addition, Sea Island cotton softens over time.
When ordering five shirts, you will receive an extra shirt from us. If you have your shirts made by us for the first time, we always prepare one shirt first. Only after approval from you, we will get started with the rest of the shirts. Within four weeks you will have a nice set of six perfect bespoke shirts.
