"Our factory has been in operation for over 75 year and for the past 15 years has been slanted towards making product for the 'better' market. When we re-started this past December ( operations were suspended last March) our goal was to provide special and distinctive product to a particular spectrum of customers. They range from the classic, traditional and up-dated men's stores to a new emerging market that we felt had a great appreciation for US made product and was looking for a younger and fresher approach to American classic. This factory and its heritage understands the great classic product of American traditional, but we think we also can take vintage and interpret it for today' customer. The product is not complicated. Rather it is classically simple. It is about beautiful fabrics, made in a New England factory for a market that wants to buy well- made, beautiful American product."
You can purchase a New England Shirt Co. shirt at any one of these locations and be sure to keep you eyes open for the full reveal of the Made In New England collection - from the small looks available now it is surely going to impress a lot more people than just myself. I've got some shirts headed my way as we speak so I will be sure to do a hands on review once they arrive.
