Which fit is right for you? The Mr. Start Shirt Styles explained...

Over the years, we have worked hard to perfect our fits and put our contemporary signature on a traditional shirt.

We have worked closely with our loyal customers to create a faultless shirt, sourcing only the finest fabrics from the finest mills in Italy.

Our clients come back season after season to replenish their wardrobe with their favourite staple, or update it with one of our new, seasonal fabrics.

The Mr. Start Fits


We have a slim fit and a casual fit. The design features are what differentiates them from each other.


The Slim fit

Our slim style has been so popular, we have created this in four versions, what differentiates them is the change in cuff, collar and placket. But the fit through the body always stays the same.

The Ritz

The Ritz shirt is our most formal shirt, it has the stiffest collar with top stitching detail, a mitred cuff to give your shirt a stylish edge, and a sharp, topstitched placket.

Philip says "wear with a Mr. Start silk tie for a formal event"


The Drake

The Drake is a more versatile option than the Ritz. It suits every occasion, casual, formal, or somewhere in between. The Drake shirt features a bluff collar with no topstitching, a rounded cuff and a French placket with minimal detail.

Philip says "Wear with your suit, or for a less formal occasion, remove the collar stiffeners for a softer, more contemporary look. Can also be worn buttoned up with no tie, for a cool, current look."


The Zetter

The Zetter has a rounded collar with edge stitching, a french front placket and rounded cuffs. A modern take on a classic shirt.

The Truman shirt

The Truman is a more casual shirt, whilst still having a slimming silhouette, it has no darts in the back meaning it is roomier than the above slim fits. The Truman shirt has a great range of fabrics introduced season on season and never fails to impress our clients.

Philip says "Why not wear with a t-shirt underneath and the shirt worn open for a more casual look or wear with a tie to create an interesting contrast with our fun, seasonal fabrics"


The Curtain

The Curtain features a button down collar. Made in a beautifully lightly textures woven two fold cotton, this shirt never disappoints. A natural fit with a box pleat at the back means it can we worn formally and casually, with comfort in mind at all times.
