Linen Shirts in Chard: A Drake's Photo Essay

A point of pride for us at Drake's, our Somerset shirt factory is where we handcraft all of our poplin, oxford and linen shirts. Local artisans piece together every element, from the single-needle stitching, to the sewing of the Mother of Pearl buttons, ironing and washing, before leaving each shirt to dry naturally in the clean West Country air.

 

With a fresh batch of our signature linen shirts arriving in Savile Row, Canal Street and online, we paid a trip to Somerset to document the time-intensive process that goes into making a Drake's shirt.
