THE BEAUFORT COLLECTION
CELEBRATING IMMACULATE JERMYN STREET SHIRTING AND CRAFTSMANSHIP
The Beaufort Collection is a luxurious high thread count cotton shirt available in ten traditional Jermyn Street patterns of classic checks and stripes in muted blues, pinks, and whites
Thomas Pink history and legend is inextricably linked with the Hunt. The classic patterns and exquisitely crafted fabrics of the Beaufort Collection derive from our archives and from our heritage as a Jermyn Street shirt maker. Our lineage dates back to the legend of Tailor Pink, who made iconic hunting coats for the discerning huntsmen of the 18th century (the coats were always referred to as ‘hunting pink’ although they were in fact scarlet). To celebrate our re-imagined archive collection, we decided to honour the joint heritage of Jermyn Street and Tailor Pink, by naming the collection in honour of the Duke of Beaufort, who is reputed to have founded the first hunt, which today, still bears his name. The patterns have been handpicked from our archive and the yarn counts start at 120s. Lovingly crafted in the UK, with the archetypal PINK attention to detail, these shirts epitomise the heritage of fine British tailoring.
BE DASHING…. WEAR BEAUFORT WITH A JACKET AND A POCKET SQUARE
Add style and flair to your Beaufort shirt with a well tailored jacket and debonair pocket square
We believe that our Beaufort shirts are Seductive. In a word. Try one and you will not be able to resist.
Step up the pace and top off the look by adding an elegantly tailored jacket in the British cut and then finish off with a whimsical pocket square.
Our pocket squares are lovingly designed in London and printed on fine silk in Italy. Surprise and delight is the motive which informs the design of our Accessory collection and we hope that our pocket squares fulfil this promise for you.
WITH A FABRIC SO EXQUISITE, IT MUST BE FROM THOMAS PINK
Pattern and texture are the hallmarks of our Beaufort Collection
Exquisite fabrics have long been a pre-occupation of Thomas Pink. When our design team first imagined the Beaufort collection, they looked to our archives for inspiration and then armed with a plethora of delicious fabrics, they visited our mills to bring the originals to back to life with a totally contemporary sensibility. The fabrics are mainly 120s or 140s but their uniting characteristic is their complexity of weave and depth of field. The cloth is woven exclusively for Thomas Pink in renowned Italian mills and the shirts are handcrafted in the United Kingdom with generations of shirt making expertise.
EVERY SHIRT IS AN EXERCISE IN SHIRTMAKING PERFECTION
We try very hard. And when we think we have tried as hard as we can, we try even harder. Really and truly. We love what we do and we want to create shirts that you will love too
A long time client sent us back a shirt that he was very fond of. We didn’t make that particular fabric any more (although the block remains same). We looked at it and we all agreed that it was special. We felt that he had a point and that we should honour his fidelity to Thomas Pink. So we re-made his favourite shirt in the Beaufort collection – we won’t name him – you know who you are ……
