Born among the lush green hills of Derry, Ireland, Smyth & Gibson adheres to the regimented standards of the old guard that have been passed down hand to hand. Richard Gibson and his wife Selena have devotedly continued this long tradition of Irish shirtmaking with a modern viewpoint. Their shirts are cut by hand and then stitched with single French needle seaming which allows them to match stripes and checks at the sleeve head, collar points, gauntlet, placket and yoke. Beautiful natural fabrics and British manufacturing land their shirts with a well-earned status of old world quality in a modern form.
