Have you ever wondered how British shirts were made and who actually makes them?
We at Grosvenor Shirts are giving you an insight on the process of how shirts are manufactured, we will highlight the steps required to manufacture our very own British made products.
Porters Factory Building was built in 1865 and is known worldwide for its heritage in manufacturing British made shirts, it is also the home of Grosvenor Shirts where we design and continue the tradition of creating all of our luxury shirts, boxer shorts and pyjamas.
We caught up with Grosvenor’s Design Director Juan Credidio to talk about the new season and surprises for SS15.
What can we expect from Grosvenor this season?
We are so pleased with the success of the Grosvenor Blazer, the response has been amazing in London and internationally. For Spring – Summer we will be launching 4 new colours of our Signature Blazers. Stunning and luxurious checked fabrics that we hope will be a big hit with the Grosvenor man.
“New fabrics for our Signature Blazer”
What are you favourite pieces?
I love the nautical looks for Spring, wonderful transitional pieces that I personally will be wearing. We have some great shirts that fall into this trend in plains and prints.
“Grosvenor Design Director, Juan Credidio’
Are there any surprises in the new collection?
Yes there are some that will give our customers more choice and attract a younger man to our shirts. This season we are introducing our Sports Collection, 15 pieces that stand out as a step in a new direction for us. This collection is more casual with a slimmer fit and details like military inspired shoulder lapels.
The new SS15 collection from Grosvenor will be in store and online soon. To be the first to hear sign up to our newsletter here.
