The Revolution Hand-Made Collection
Featuring the fabrics of THOMAS MASON
England, 1792 – The first boats arrived in Leeds, the Yorkshire textile hub, loaded with cotton from the West Indies.
1796 – Sir Thomas Mason founded one of the 1st cotton fabric factories in Leeds for shirts. The fabrics, which were premium quality, even then, were used by West End London tailors for the aristocracy and rich upper class and were later exported all over the British Empire.
1936 – The Prince of Wales comes to the throne but after only a few months, abdicates for the love of Wallis Simpson. Nominated Duke of Windsor, he impersonates the role of referee of the most elegant and aristocratic style between the 2 world wars. It was then that Thomas Mason became the exclusive supplier for Turnbull & Asser, the shirt-maker for the Duke of Windsor and of English Royalty.
Today, the brand is owned and operated by the Albini family of Bergamo, Italy. They still maintain their two century long history and tradition consisting of a heritage of seven hundred fabric volumes which house the designs of historical relevance and incomparable taste.
Daniel George is proud to offer Thomas Mason, the world’s finest, shirt fabric collection.
To achieve the popular, Neapolitan silhouette, much importance lies within the architecture of the dress shirt.
