Our Shirts

The HST Shirts are really quite unique. Our legendary heat-sealed shank buttons and renowned house styles such as the one-piece collar aside - each HST Shirt is so finely calibrated to its wearer for fit and comfort it feels just like a second skin.

All the material used for our shirts are nothing short of top-notch, with the higher range featuring luxury fabrics second to none. You would also be hard pressed to find the level of hand-crafted finishing in our shirts elsewhere.

Lines and even floral patterns on the fabric are matched across seams, shirt fronts, even between layers - wherever

physically possible to astounding precision, showcasing a technical wizardry that would endlessly enthral any tailoring aficionado and enthusiast. Seams are double-stitched for added sturdiness and a high stitch-count is applied throughout the garment.

"A bespoke shirt made by HST is a gentleman's trusty companion - it makes you look good, impresses your friends, is relevant and reliable, is extremely easy-going and stays by your side in all situations."

Shirt-making is a staple for all tailors. Whilst once upon a time simply an undergarment, the shirt has now evolved to be a feature piece in a gentleman's modern attire. A solidly built working dress shirt can exude a great aura, giving its wearer greater confidence and authority.

More fancy fabrics and exotic styles concocts a sprezzatura that is hard to resist. Not all shirts are made equal. We would like to think that ours is just that bit better.

Our Workmanship

1. Double-Stitching

Every shirt is double stitched using a single needle. As this

traditional method produces a fine but sturdy seam, we generally prefer this over the common twin needle stitch. This finishing might take longer, but it leads to  a much stronger seam and we want that for you. 

 

2. Perfect Matching

Stripes and checks on your shirt are carefully matched at all joints - collar, cuffs, sleeves, shoulders and pockets. This requires highly-skilled workmanship to ensure that the patterns flow smoothly.  This is a clear indication of a finely crafted bespoke shirt, and a gentleman's mark of sophistication.
 

3. Quality Interlining

We use the finest Swiss collar interlining, which costs 6 times more than the conventional material used by others. This way, your collar sits comfortably and snugly around your neck, giving you superior comfort and style throughout the day.

4. Exquisite Haberdashery

Our collection of mother-of- pearl (MOP) and other buttons are simply extensive, as is our threads. One is simply spoilt for choice at HST.

5. Sturdy and Easy-to-Fasten Buttons
We use heat-sealed shank technology to secure our MOP buttons to ensure they stay fast.  We are the only tailor in Singapore to do so. The time and effort involved is a testament to our dedication to giving you only the best.

 

6. Luxury Add-ons

You can enhance the value of your shirt with our priced MOP collar stays.  Beautiful and precious.

Getting your shirt done at HST is a unique bespoke experience, a product of sophisticated technology riding on the trusted shoulders of traditional expertise.  And with our immense collection of glorious fabrics and
haberdashery, you would never view a shirt the same way again.
