Budd Shirtmakers now has a permanent presence in the USA, with a small concession at the lovely Sterling & Burke store in Washington DC. Lovers of all things handcrafted and heritage driven will already be familiar with the company, which specialises in English made luggage and accessories, and now includes our shirts, nightwear, ties and other accessories amongst its offering. Budd’s Made to Measure shirt service will also be available to visitors to the store, enabling them to try our shirt bodies at first hand, before selecting cut, collar, cuff and cloth options.

Since opening its first physical store in the city in 2011, Sterling and Burke has been a well established advocate and host for some of London’s finest bespoke houses, including bespoke tailors, shoemakers, milliners and of course, Budd. We have held several trunk shows at the store in recent years and count Washington as one of our key US destinations. Our permanent presence within the store will see our cutters Darren Tiernan and James Macauslan visit the city more frequently as our customer base grows.

When Budd first met Susan Sibbald Jeffrey, owner of Sterling and Burke, there was a natural and obvious affinity between the two brands. Susan’s philosophy puts the customer and sourcing excellence in quality and craftsmanship at the centre of her work:

“Our goal is to always provide the best customer service experience possible. With our extensive history with luxury brands, the chances are, even if you don't see it on our website, we can help you find what you need!”

Susan’s values very much mirror the experience we seek to provide Budd’s own experience with visiting us at our Piccadilly shop. We look forward to strengthening our relationship over the coming year and establishing Sterling and Burke, not just as the destination store that it currently is, but also as an essential stop for customers looking for perfect gentlemen’s haberdashery and black tie in the Capital.

Our collection at Sterling and Burke is very representative of our core, essential products. A preview can be viewed below:
