One of the more enjoyable tasks in starting 'Pin Collar Shirts Ltd' was the fashion shoot for the images on our main page.
The pin collar shirt has been around since the beginning of the twentieth century, checking in just as good Queen Vic was checking out. The look helped give voice to the roaring 20s, faded a little during the depression and then returned with a vengeance, popularity reaching its zenith in the 1950's and 60s. In designing these shirts I wanted to honour the shirt’s own fashion legacy, in particular the post-war periods, while adding an unashamedly brazen 21st century twist.
The shoot was held at the Historic Dockyard at Chatham http://www.thedockyard.co.uk/ and I couldn't have hoped for a better setting.
I would like to thank everyone involved in helping make the shoot easy, successful and most importantly a good laugh. Here are a few of the shots which didn’t quite make the final cut:
Alright Caroline, I'm ready for my close-up
