    The Millwheel Shirt is formed around the idea of rotational symmetry.The front chest pocket is tucked into the outward-facing button placket. The under placket is sewn inwards, and the back pleat is taken out in one direction only (rather than a more usual symmetrical box pleat). The direction of the back pleat and the front pocket line up when rotated around the centre axis of the shirt, like the blades of a millwheel.The sleeves are pleated into false cuffs, and the hem is finished in a gentle curve.

    Wool Serge is woven in England in a simple left hand twill, from soft woollen yarn. Once a French term for twilled fabric woven in English-controlled Calais using British wool, it was similar to the 15th Century British Saye fabric, a lighter weight twilled cloth woven in the South West of England. Serge de Nîmes is the much-storied twilled cloth from Nîmes said to be the etymological origin of denim.

    Tender’s designer William Kroll puts a lot of care into their research, design, manufacture, and wear. Just as a gardener tends to a vegetable patch, or a shepherd is the tender to a flock of sheep, Tender has the hope that it's customers will live with their products, wearing them hard, but respecting their provenance and the stories they have to tell. The British-made clothes and accessories are manufactured in small factories, ateliers, and homes around the country, exploring new approaches to traditional weaving, making, tanning, and dyeing.
