began cutting its traditional oxford cloth button down shirt in an
18th century warehouse across the street from Boston Garden (now the
Fleet Center) in the late 70’s. At that time, the primary maker of
men’s traditional button down shirts began to compromise its
product, with uneven workmanship and skimping of materials.
response, Mercer&SonsTM designed our own shirt
pattern, traditional in every way, from offset cuffs and six-button
plackets to our trademark 3 7/16” button down collar which we cut,
turn, trim and point by hand, without lining or fusing, to guarantee
its distinctive full roll. We sourced the finest yarn-dyed, two-ply
oxford cloth available (our famed BulletproofTM Pima
Cotton Oxford) and began manufacturing button downs for men who rely
every day on their shirts for fit, comfort, quality and traditional
time, we have broadened our shirt line to include not only the
finest Italian and English patterns, but also offer the best
straight point tennis collar and modified spread collar available
today. A traditional short sleeve sport shirt and custom size
options were later added to our specialty.
our offices moved from Boston to Adamsville, part of Little Compton,
Rhode Island, a small seaside fishing and farming community located
in the shadow of Rhode Island’s historic textile industry and near
the highly respected Textile Department of UMass Dartmouth. In 2003
we moved to Yarmouth, Maine where we continued growing Mercer&SonsTM
with quality and integrity.
offices now operate out of Bozeman, Montana which we are lucky to
call our home. We continue to stay true to our original mission to
manufacture a high-quality traditional cut dress shirt in an array
of classic patterns and fabric.
