Son of a Tailor

Made to order T-Shirts, custom-fitted to every customer, with a superior look and feel and a durability that will dramatically increase the lifespan of the product.

From the very beginning, Son of a Tailor set itself the goal of producing the best t-shirt in the world, where “best” means more than just design, or fabric, or fit.

Most of the clothes we wear today come out of a global mass production and distribution system.
This has helped make clothing affordable and widely available, but it has come at a cost.

Today, the clothing industry is a global mass waste producer.

By introducing customisation at scale, Son of a Tailor is reimagining how clothes should be produced and distributed.
