  • Details

    The Three Pocket Square Tail Shirt is a combination of several previous Tender shirt designs. The simple square body, with split tails and a flat back, has large hand pockets sewn into the side seams and a third left chest pocket.The sleeves are pleated into false cuffs, cut into the seam. Shirts are sewn with ecru 100% cotton thread and fastened with black melamine Savile Row tailor's fly buttons.

    A covert coat is a traditional British tailored overcoat, used while hunting, and intended to act as camouflage in thick undergrowth.It is usually cut from ‘thorn proof’ covert fabric, supposedly woven so that a briar thorn could be wiggled all the way through the structure of the cloth without breaking the yarn. Tender’s indigo cotton and natural linen covert cloths are woven in the same pattern as a traditional thornproof covert, trapping the contrasting yarn weft behind the ecru cotton warp. The Wattle dye is made from a thorny tree native to Australia, India, and China, and has been used for thousands of years to tan leather and dye fabrics, as well as in the construction of wattle and daub houses.

    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.
