Thomas Mason x WM Brown x Budd

Present The Cocktail Stripe Collection

The Cocktail Stripe


Exclusively for Budd Shirtmakers, Thomas Mason has created The Cocktail Stripe, a limited-edition fabric inspired by the Martini, a favourite drink of Matt Hranek, founder of the WM Brown Project. The cloth has been made up into a small nightwear collection, created and conceived with a contemporary approach by Matt himself.

The collaboration smoothly blends Thomas Mason’s bold style with Budd’s uncompromised craftsmanship and expertise. Just like the perfection of an olive in your Martini.

The Cocktail Stripe Collection has been woven in Italy by Thomas Mason. It has a 120/2 warp and a 70/1 weft quality, a luminous appearance, a soft, full-bodied touch and offers up superior comfort and elegance.
