With time at a premium in the busy life of the modern man, anything that can help ease the office wear shopping experience is sure to be embraced. London-based Collar Club does just that, cutting out the middlemen to deliver luxury Italian shirts directly to the door of the style-conscious gent.
This innovative new concept is born out of almost twenty years of frustration felt by founder and ex-City banker, Hasan Mustafa, who sought a solution for the lack of readily available, high-quality shirts, without the added hassle of laundry.
Enter Collar Club, Mustafa’s answer to the shirt quandary that enables businessmen across the UK to look their best, with minimal input. You can buy shirts directly from the brand’s online store, or you can avail of the Collar Club subscription service whereby you pay for your shirts over a twelve-month period.
What’s more, you can even add on the London laundry concierge service (collection and delivery of any ten shirts whenever you book). No more trips to the dry cleaners or precious weekend hours spent behind the ironing board.
Made In Italy
As you’d expect with such a premium service, the brand’s products also adhere to the same high-end values. Each shirt is crafted from 100 per cent Egyptian cotton by the same Italian shirtmakers behind some of the world’s leading menswear brands, each one fully customised and designed to fit the wearer perfectly.
Speaking about the motivation behind Collar Club, Mustafa said:
“The old retail model is outdated and highly unfair on the consumer. It’s 2015 and consumers deserve top quality shirts, made by the best Italian shirtmakers, without the unnecessary retail markups.
“We go direct to Italy, when shirts offered by most Jermyn Street competitors are being made cheaply elsewhere. Our shirts are made to order in small batches which allows us to pass all the savings on to the consumer.”
Hand-Finished Shirts On Demand
For a monthly fee, Collar Club customers can purchase either a five-shirt (£30 per month) or ten-shirt (£60 per month) subscription. Subscribers receive their full complement of shirts within four weeks, with the cost conveniently spread over twelve monthly membership payments.
If time’s especially tight, you can also add the brand’s on-demand luxury laundry service, which delivers ten hand-finished shirts to your door for just £25. Want to dip your toe in the water first? As an introductory offer, new subscribers can trial the laundry service for just £15 for ten laundered shirts.
As well as its subscription service, the fashion startup now offers a collection of ready-to-wear shirts, with prices starting at just £69.
Currently available in two fits (slim and tailored), two collar styles (classic and semi-cutaway), two cuff styles (French and single) and five fabrics, there’s a range of styles that’ll see you from boardroom to bar.
With one eye firmly focused on the weekend, the label is also introducing a selection of casual shirts in new fabrics and more relaxed fits, with three of these styles available in their online store now.
Want an even more personally tailored fit? Collar Club also offers a made-to-order service – ideal for those guys of a slightly more unconventional shape.
Choose your collar size and style, sleeve length and cuff style and the brand will do the rest. Prices start at £69 per shirt with a minimum order quantity of five.

Still unsure whether it’s for you? Why not take advantage of the brand’s 100 per cent free trial, which allows you to try a shirt at home for five days? Once your five days are up, you simply pop the shirt back in the post (delivery and return postage is included) and, if happy, simply order online or start a subscription. Easy.
