the late 70's and early 1980's, MERCER&SONS
was located in an 18th century warehouse across from Boston
Garden. At that time, the primary maker of traditional button downs
shirts began to cheapened its product, with uneven workmanship and
skimping of materials.
In response, MERCER&SONS
our own shirt pattern, traditional in every way, from offset cuffs
and six-button placket 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.
Once we had sourced the
finest yarn-dyed, two-ply oxford cloth available (our famed
Bulletprooftm Pima Oxford) we began manufacturing button downs
for men who rely every day on their shirts for fit, quality and
traditional good looks.
Since that time, we have broadened our shirt line to include not
only the finest Italian and English shirtings,
but also the best straight point, plain collar, modified spread
collar, and the best short
sleeve sport shirt, as well.
A number of
years later, we moved our operations to Adamsville, part of Little
Compton, Rhode Island, a small seaside fishing and farming village
located in the shadow of historic textile mills of Rhode Island and
SE Massachusetts, and close by the highly respected Textile
Department at U-Mass- Dartmouth.
After 11 years in Yarmouth, an old shipbuilding village nestled
between Portland and South Freeport, Maine, we moved our
offices to Big Sky country in Bozeman, Montana.
