About The White Gabardine: Gabardine was invented by Thomas Burberry in 1879 and is a strong tightly woven fabric closely related to twill. Ours is soft but not delicate and extremely versatile.

About the Gateway Shirt Program:

Because we want as many people to try and own a Zip Fit shirt as possible, from time to time we will release a shirt for $98 in limited supply. Generally we are able to do this because we have found an incredible deal on a quantity of fabric and we pass that savings along. However, the labor cost is exactly the same as our other shirts and the overall cost is not that much lower. This means that we are foregoing most of our profit in order to bring a handmade shirt to market at this price.

Because of this we don't allow promo codes to be used on these shirts and request that customers limit their purchase to two shirts in each batch. 

Our roots are in the custom shirt world and our mission to create the ultimate shirt is guided by that history. Every Zip Fit shirt is imbued with the same qualities and standards and because we sell directly to our customers we can price them at half of what they would cost in a bricks and mortar store:

  • Handmade. Never mass-produced
  • 100% long staple Egyptian cotton woven in one of the world's top mills
  • Single needle lockstitched & flat-felled seams means extreme durability
  • A larger drop from chest to waist than any shirt on the market
  • Fits athletic body types like it's custom & lends its shape to slim/average guys 
  • No pulling open and gapping around the buttons
  • The patented Stay-up Collar prevents the collar from collapsing and spreading open.

Awesome shirt, first class customer service!

This is a great shirt!

Unfortunately, I sent it to the cleaners after the initial wearing and the zipper was damaged. Lockdown happened, it hung in my closet for over a year,before realizing it was damaged. Sent it back to Teddy Stratford and requested repair.

Despite it not being Teddy Stratford’s fault, shirt was repaired and also I was offered a replacement!

Love the shirt, so requested a replacement.

First Class customer service by Bryan!

As a guy who works

As a guy who works out and have a large chest, your shirts have an amazing fit. I'm not going to any other shirt.


Every thing about it is awesome

The shirt was awesome. My

The shirt was awesome. My only complaint is that it’s probably not the right one for you if you have a smaller chest and a larger belly! The material is great and the idea is great as well. The reason I bought them for my husband is because David Pakman always looks so put together but he doesn’t have the belly lol my hubby does!

Top quality material! The mid zip is unique with a crisp clean look!
