THOMAS MASON ICONS, AN EXCLUSIVE RE-EDITION OF THE FABRICS THAT HAVE MADE THE HISTORY OF SHIRTS
The history of Thomas Mason began in England back in 1796 and since then has never stopped weaving style and elegance. These are the fabrics used by London tailors of the West End for the aristocracy and for the rich English bourgeoisie of the nineteenth century and which, in the Victorian era, have become the reference point of masculine elegance. Fabrics favoured by the London shirt makers of St. James’s and Jermyn Street, the capital of the shirt in the world. Creativity and innovation have allowed Thomas Mason to create an immense archive of inestimable value, which, since 1992, has been jealously guarded in the skilful hands of Albini Group.
It is through looking for inspiration within this extraordinary archive that the stylistic team of Thomas Mason has thought of Icons, a capsule collection that includes the re-edition of 10 historical designs – all colourful stripes – inspired by the legendary style of Jermyn Street and today transposed and updated on contemporary quality bases.
A capsule collection that serves the dual purpose of paying homage to the vast historical archive of Thomas Mason – a treasure consisting of over 700 volumes – and to give added value to some of the iconic fabrics of the brand. Each of these fabrics is also available with the precious selvedge that reads “Thomas Mason Icon”.
Therefore the distinctive British hallmark of these historical fabrics, which is expressed in the eccentricity of the patterns and the typical colours of Thomas Mason, can continue to live on through contemporary garments, made exclusively with the best extra-long-staple cotton yarns in the world.
