What is the Date shirt?

Apr 2, 2012 3:52:51 AM

An idea born from pure passion.....I wanted to create a very special shirt for men to wear for romance, entertaining, and special occasions.

My unique background in art, design, textiles and men’s tailoring, and my exposure to a mix of cultures gives me the ability to create these casually elegant and timeless shirts with exclusive print designs that have a hand drawn quality with a personal touch. 


Some of my original sketches for the Date shirt:

l use luxury fabrics with a soft hand touch with fine needle work and a masculine fit that flatters. These easy care shirts are great with jeans worn out, or tucked in.

The Art of Attraction....

Apr 2, 2012 3:52:49 AM

How does a man attract a woman? Women notice handsome men of course, but beyond that, a guy with his own sense of style and confidence really stands out and sparks that curiosity of what his personality is about. And, taking that extra effort to dress well is a hint that he cares about who he is with or who he will meet.  Dressing well doesn’t have to be just about wearing a suit and tie, it can also be about feeling comfortable, approachable, and casually elegant.  

The date shirt embodies this spirit of creating a sense of casual elegance, an alternative to the suit and T shirt, a statement about personal confidence and style.

A Gift for Father’s Day

Apr 2, 2012 3:52:47 AM

The Date shirt makes a great Father’s day gift.  Make your dad, dad to be, or special guy feel appreciated and loved. My shirts come to you directly from the designer with a fit that flatters in a luxury quality fabric that feels great to wear. The detailing is meticulous with refined needlework and river shell buttons and the prints are seasonless and timeless. The gift packaging includes Japanese “wave” rice paper in a handsome box finished with a silver-beige ribbon.

And don’t forget birthdays, anniversaries, and groomsmen gifts.....

A Thank You

Feb 22, 2012 2:15:35 PM

Well what can I say...if it wasn’t for my beautiful and talented wife Michele and my incredible tech savvy son Nigel, this website would not have been possible...for me to show and sell my love of the arts and design online directly to you.  

When I was a young man I used to design and make myself a new shirt and pants for every date or party that I went to.  I love to dress up. It’s my way of showing appreciation for the person I am with or the person I will meet for the first time, that I care and enjoy meeting them. 

My date shirt embodies this spirit of creating a sense of occasion and romance, an alternative to the suit and the T shirt, a statement about casual elegance.
