A shirt is a classic fashion staple and something everyone should have in their wardrobe, which is something that shirtmakers Nicholas Jermyn innately understand. The brand was launched in 2006 to bring the heritage of premium shirtmaking to New Zealand and is proudly locally owned and operated. Nicholas Jermyn draws on the rich heritage of London’s Jermyn Street which was distinguished by its heritage of master tailors since 1664. The brand’s ethos is based in quality and craftmanship which comes through in their elegant range of shirts that are accessibly priced for the local Kiwi customer.
The brand specialise in producing limited edition, handmade, high quality business shirts that are a go-to wardrobe item for their many customers. Nicholas Jermyn offer timeless and thoughtful designs that are available in a range of colours, prints and textures to suit many different tastes. What makes them exceptional is the masterful tailoring and attention to detail that makes every shirt a great fit in fabrics and styles that are designed to last.
Nicholas Jermyn are passionate about producing shirts that will be loved and worn for years to come and are advocates for slow fashion. They want each shirt purchase to be one that the wearer is excited about and that they feel they will get a lot of wear out of. Nicholas Jermyn’s style of shirts are crafted with time-honoured techniques to offer modern elegance that eschews trends and never goes out of style.
When you shop online at nicholasjermyn.co.nz you can choose from a range of made-to-order shirts in standard sizes that include their latest collection of fabrics and colours alongside classic shirting tones like white, blue and black. Each shirt takes 4 – 6 weeks to be made by their expert team of shirtmakers and is couriered out to you when its ready.
Nicholas Jermyn’s premium range of shirts are impeccably finished for a quality fit and feel.
If you have something particular in mind and want to create a shirt that is bespoke to you then you can opt to submit your measurements via their website and pick the shirt details that you prefer which includes everything from the colour to the buttons, stitching, lapels and more. The result is a made-to-measure shirt that fits beautifully and once you’ve created your favourite style it’s easy to re-order it should you want that shirt in a different colour or fabric etc.
Nicholas Jermyn also offer an in-person complimentary styling consultation service that is available on request, which the FashioNZ team got to try out. Stylists Jose and Vlad guided each of our team through Nicholas Jermyn’s selection of fabrics, sizing options and customisation choices. Each person was measured so that the shirts could be sized to fit our individual bodies and we tried on some of the standard sized shirts to get an idea of the style and fit that we wanted. Then each person got to choose the shirting details to design our perfect shirt, starting with the fabric right through to customised embroidery on the cuffs.
The stylists’ advice was really helpful to make the right decisions on the details and their friendly manner and expert knowledge on shirting helped guide our team to choose shirts that suited us and reflected our personal style. We greatly enjoyed our afternoon spent with the Nicholas Jermyn team and were excited to see how the shirts turned out.
A few weeks later, the shirts arrived each packaged in individual, recyclable boxes with a personalised note and some instructions on caring for the shirts. There was quite a bit of excitement from the team to see the shirts and how the details we had each chosen worked together for our perfect shirts. The results were excellent quality and each person was really pleased with how their shirt turned out, no doubt the FashioNZ team will be wearing their Nicholas Jermyn shirts for years to come. If you’re after a high quality shirt that is made to last while being affordable, Nicholas Jermyn is the shirtmaker for you.
