MENS U.K. SHIRT PRODUCTION

There are very few production facilities in the U.K. for good quality, small scale men`s shirt production. We offer shirt production alongside our pattern cutting and sampling facilities, so we can provide any quantity from one upwards. Obviously the more shirts you have per style,  size and colour, the less each shirt will cost. But we have no minimums . The MOQ ( minimum order quantity ) is the first thing that many startup brands look for in a factory. We specialise in helping small startup brands who are not able to produce large quantities for each style.

MENS SHIRT CONSTRUCTION

We use various construction methods for our mens shirts, depending on the type of finish required. Some customers want a simple overlocked  seam construction with a soft collar, because a soft look is required, or because the fabric or print is more important than the seam finish.

TYPES OF SHIRT SEAMS

The vast majority of traditional mens shirts are  made using  flat felled seams for  the side, underarm and armhole seams. This is the strongest  and neatest seam construction.  A flat felled seam has no visible seam as  all the seam allowances  are enclosed . Industrial machines can make these seams in one process. The seams are secured with a double row of topstitching, or twin needling.

Some designer shirts use french seams rather than flat felled seams. Like the flat felled seam, the french seam also has a neat internal finish . While this is generally  a more expensive seam,  It is debatable whether it is superior. Because flat felled seams are generally made by  specialst shirt factories in larger quantities they can be considered less exotic than french seams. Because french seams can be made on a normal sewing machine and because they can be sold as superior, many designers choose this construction.

Sometimes mens shirts will be made using normal overlocked seams. While this is a cheaper form of construction, it is sometimes used when the print or fabric design are the more important factors. When normal overlocked seams are used
