About Hammett Shirts


Hammett Shirts is an online UK men’s shirt retailer of superb quality, luxury contemporary casual shirts for men of stature.

From many years of experience in shirt making for well-known designer brands we at Hammett realised the persisting fashion for slim and skinny fit shirts was excluding many style conscious, confident men from great quality distinctive shirts. We also noticed the limited choice for larger sizes and fits was mostly from cheap retailers leaving the discerning man with even fewer options.

  This is why we started our own range of shirts and are totally committed to giving our customers outstanding, exclusive, affordable luxury shirts for all the best occasions in life, in fits that provide comfort and elegance. A Hammett Shirt is for men who take pride in their appearance but who need some room for comfort.

We offer two fits, “Regular Fit” for the bigger man & “Tailored Fit” for the leaner man. Regular Fit is for comfort & a dignified appearance [sizes up to XXXL or 21”] & Tailored Fit for an elegant, flattering silhouette, slimming but not tight [sizes up to XXL or 18”].

We also make our shirts with different lengths. Our smart casual shirts are designed to be tucked in whereas our casual shirts are slightly shorter, so they can be worn outside the trousers without looking untidy.

Our shirt fits have evolved over the years and we have worked on them obsessively to continue to improve and perfect. Nothing has been more important in the development of our brand.

Afterall, when a shirt fits well it makes you look good and feel great!

Hammett Shirts, whether they’re bold & flamboyant prints for the fun times or more discreet, sophisticated shirts for smarter occasions, are all made from the finest fabrics from the very best mills and selected for their luxury or casual handles. The fabrics are densely woven from modern compact yarns which provide vibrant colour and long lasting, hard wearing quality.

We buy our fabrics in small quantities which means all our shirts are limited editions in a maximum of 50 shirts per colour of a design, making our shirt designs quite unique and very exclusive. So, when you’re wearing a Hammett Shirt you’ll know you’re one of a special few. This quality and exclusivity comes at very reasonable price which we think is a worthwhile affordable luxury and so will you when you own your own Hammett Shirt.

We believe in style before fashion so always want to create a shirt that will always look great long after a trend has passed. Our styling is carefully considered and always subtle, so our exquisite fabrics can do the talking. To add to the uniqueness of our shirts we design each shirt with extra details.

Each shirt bears a discretely placed embroidery of our logo for authentication. The buttons are of a high quality, so they don’t break and are specially selected to complement the fabrics. Then with our planer fabrics we bring them to life with painstakingly matched contrasts to give a hint of style that will always be noticed.

Our dedication to the very best quality of fabric is also reflected in the make of our shirts. The master cutters & machinists at our factory carefully produce our shirts with every attention to detail. The shirts are sewn with a high count of stitching for a neat and smooth appearance. The seams are twin needled for strength and durability and the sleeves are inserted with lap seams for finesse. The collar is designed and constructed from multiple parts so that it sits well on the body. It is fused with a soft, light interfacing to give a relaxed feel but also comes with removable collar stiffeners [or “bones” as we call them after the original material used years ago: whalebone], to give a sharper look when needed. The buttons are attached by cross locked stitching, so they don’t fall off and distinguish a well-made shirt from the rest. Throughout the manufacturing process we conduct our own quality inspections and then when the shirts are finished, they are re-checked before despatch to ensure each shirt arrives in pristine condition.

Finally, we think it’s important that you know that the workers in our factory are paid a fair wage and work in proper, safe conditions, so that when you buy a Hammett Shirt you have also made an ethical choice. Something else to feel good about. Furthermore, while this is being written, we are working on sustainable packaging materials to do our bit for the environment.

Then the last word to our friend & inspiration, Peter Hammett, gentleman, raconteur & bon viveur: “If the shirt fits, wear it”. Characteristically blunt, but incisive – sharp and effective, just like our shirts.
