The making of a Budd shirt

What makes a Budd shirt?

We make beautiful shirts at Budd. They are the cornerstone of what we do and a great source of pride. Whilst so much changes around us, a Budd shirt remains a constant. Very little has changed in the way we make our shirts over the past 110 years.

The Process

  • Select your cloth, fit, collar and cuff.
  • Choose the fit that works for you: Classic, Tailored or Slim.
  • Provide your neck size and sleeve length.
  • Your shirt is then hand cut and hand machined especially for you at Budd's own Andover workshop, using the same methods of construction as our bespoke service. Hand cut, single needle stitching, hand turned collars, and hand cut button holes are just some of the elements that make your shirt special.
  • Hand monogramming is available for an extra personal touch.

The Fit

We offer three different fits within our Made to Measure service, ensuring that we have the ideal cut for each of you.

Classic Fit

Our Classic Fit has a clean shoulder line and enough fullness for those who have lived well. This is Budd's original shirt block, and reflects the traditional shirt cut of old favoured by Jermyn Street.

Tailored Fit

Our Tailored Fit is cut with room and comfort in the chest and shoulders, but with a neat, not tight waistpoint. A compromise between our fuller, Classic Fit and our trim, Slim Fit.

Slim Fit

A more contemporary cut, our Slim Fit has been designed with a trimmer sleeve and is an altogether closer fitting shirt across the body, providing clean lines. A shirt that shows off your silhouette.

The Collar

The Cuff

Showing a little cuff under a jacket or sweater always looks elegant. Typically, a ¼” or ½” flash of cuff is best. In fact, a lack of visible cuff is often perceived as untidy or ill-considered, lacking polish.

Cuffs have always served to anchor the sleeve. Traditionally, they would fasten with ribbon, replaced by traditional links as time went on. These were double cuffs, and the term still applies today, with double cuffs sometimes referred to as French cuffs instead.

Recent years have seen a rise in popularity in button cuff shirts, known more generally as single cuffs. This is thanks largely to their increased acceptance into the work wardrobe as well as the perfect, most convenient and comfortable option for casual dress too.

A single cuff with a cufflink is best saved for white tie dress only.
