Jake’s x Thomas Mason Fun Shirt
back to all news

We are proud to introduce the new Jake’s x Thomas Mason Fun Shirt. Made by Jake’s using the finest quality Italian poplin fabric from Thomas Mason Downing collection. A robust yet almost silky handle, this fabric is sure to last a lifetime.

The ultimate weekend shirt, whether you are off to the pub or an exhibition this shirt is perfect to accompany good times. It may seem bold to the more conservative dresser but we can assure you that this shirt is super wearable and pairs nicely with casual and more dressed up looks. 

These shirts have been modelled off the 70s Brooks Brothers fun shirt, a modern classic and a rare to find vintage garment. 

The story goes that Brooks Brothers Vice president was visiting one of their workshops when he came across a shirt made from off-cuts and scraps that were repurposed by a shirtmaker in training. These shirts would be used as a test run for shirt patterns and styles. The Brooks Brothers executive fell in love with bright asymmetric styling and immediately ordered production of the “Fun Shirt”. The rest is History.

For this limited edition, Jake’s will make these shirt exclusively in the Thomas Mason Downing collection. A super smooth poplin that has silky light touch with the strength characteristics of cotton. The bold and rich colours are a testament to the quality of the fabric.
