Founded in London in 1984, Thomas Pink has long stood as a world-famous modern British shirtmaker, and will continue as one of the top luxury shirtmakers for the years to come. Thomas Pink has demonstrated this very principle with their new collaboration with Baird McNutt, an acclaimed Irish linen mill that possesses over a century of craftsmanship knowledge immersed in tradition and invaluable expertise.
Baird McNutt’s century in the fashion industry creating fine linen, coupled together with a contemporary approach towards design, has assisted Thomas Pink in creating an extraordinary collection for the elegant gentleman’s Summer wardrobe. The new High Summer collection features an array of solid seasonal colors in mélange designs. The relaxed classic fit as well as the semi cutaway collar turn these Summer-Ready shirts into the perfect blend between casual and business attire.
The renowned linen manufacturer uses traditional Irish techniques to create top of the line, premium materials. The family business of Baird was first established in 1912, where, at the time, their primary output was linen handkerchiefs, but changed in the late 1960’s from producing handkerchiefs to constructing luxury apparel. Around this time, the company was given a proposal from the McNutt family in Donegal offering design services. This resulted in the creation of the current Irish Linen Baird McNutt label.
The founders of Thomas Pink, the Mullen brothers, got their inspiration from the 18th century tailor Mr. Pink, who was known far and wide as the originator of ‘hunting pink’ – referring towards the scarlet jackets that hunt staff wore. Currently the renowned Thomas Pink label belongs to Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton or LVMH, which the luxury multinational conglomerate company acquired in 1999.
Offering business and casual shirting as well as Made T0 Order, PINK shirts are designed using traditional methods with exclusive materials from prominent mills throughout the globe. Thomas Pink makes their shirts with hand-turned collars and comprised of up to 14 individual pieces. These shirts come in an assortment of options such as Classic, Slim, and Super Slim Fit, while the brand also (in addition to shirts) presents tailoring, knitwear, separates, and accessories.
Thomas Pink has over 100 stores worldwide and flagships located in London’s Jermyn Street, Rue Francois Premier, Paris and Madison Avenue, New York. The new High Summer collection is currently available at Thomas Pink stores or on their online site: US.ThomasPink.com.
