Introducing...California Tailor, a women's shirting company that launched this week out of Los Angeles. Gill McLean, a British ex-pat living in California with a decade+ of clothing design experience decided she had enough with working for a big brand that often had to cut corners and set out on her own to combine the elegance of a traditionally tailored British shirt with the laid-back nonchalance of California style. The result is proper hybrid of the two that works so nicely.
California Tailor's first collection, Shirt No. 1 ($168), is a series of eight button-down shirts (including one made from Liberty of London fabric), all machine washable, that are gently tailored but also a bit boyish. And like most small-batch clothing labels, California Tailor is all about quality and detail. From stitching to buttons to weaves and pockets, everything McLean has designed has been considered and reconsidered.
Check out California Tailor and Shirt No. 1 online now, and here's a little teaser for things to come...obviously that t-shirt...I need it!
