I was recently approached by the Savile Row Company to review two shirts from their collection. In the interest of a fair review, I chose one from the casual collection and one from the formal. “The Savile Row Company is a global online retailer of fine luxury goods with a focus on menswear, but also spanning across accessories, footwear and womenswear”. I was always familiar with the brand having seen their shirts in numerous stores like TK Maxx and various menswear shops. When I knew that they had a standalone website I couldn’t wait to choose from a wider selection than I had previously seen. Let’s check out the casual shirt first. When choosing the shirts I tried my best to stay with classic colours and designs. Seeing as I have a few white shirts in different designs. I thought blue would be a nice alternative. This Blue and white striped oxford shirt comes in two fits. I chose the slim fit, but it also comes in a classic fit which is a bit more generous in fit. I chose this simply because of its versatility and classic nature. Lately, when I am buying a shirt, I want something that will go with a lot of colours so that I am not limiting my choices when I am choosing an outfit. This shirt goes well with most colour trousers or jeans. I paired it with a pair of cream chinos and a navy jumper which isn’t pictured here, but a navy blazer would work just as well with for the smart casual look.
Next up is the formal shirt. This shirt is definitely one that I didn’t have in my collection. I had always been intrigued by the collar pin shirt and wondered was there a place for it in my wardrobe. Having tried it out, I found the fit to be true to the size chart and if you’re looking for a shirt true to the size chart then the slim fit is the one for you. I found the collar pin easy to style and it’s really good when you have a nice tie to show off as it brings forward that little bit to bring it to the fore. The subtle dot print is also a nice touch to it.
Overall, I found the shirts to be true to size, very comfortable and very easy to style. The selection of formal shirts I had to choose from was quite large, so there is something for everyone. Whereas the casual section was a lot smaller, but what was available were classic designs that will suit young and old. Seeing as this week is cyber week you can get a huge 25% off everything except made to measure shirts with the code SNAPITUP over on the Savile Row Co website here.
Which of the two was your favourite? have you bought a Savile Row Co shirt before? If so, what did you think of it?
