Charles Tyrwhitt history

At Charles Tyrwhitt (pronounced "Tirrit") we endeavour to produce the finest menswear, with timeless style and no compromise on quality. To top this off we provide exemplary customer service, with smashing prices and a pinch of British charm thrown in for good measure.

I started the business back in 1986 (my full name is Nicholas Charles Tyrwhitt Wheeler) because I thought I could make a better shirt than anybody else. Since those humble origins, we’ve made a commitment to ensure all our menswear is built to last, using only the finest materials sourced from every corner of the globe, not to mention local producers here in Britain.

Over the years we have developed our range to include everything from formal shirts to separates, suits and shoes, in addition to a casual collection, knitwear and accessories. Our women’s collection is centred on the same foundations as our men’s – flawless design, quality and fit, at remarkable value. At our core we aim to offer you the best customer service we can, to keep you feeling tremendous, not to mention looking it too. We believe so strongly in our products that we offer a full, no questions asked, six-month guarantee - no matter what condition the item is in.

You can visit us at our flagship store on the world-famous Jermyn Street – renowned for British elegance, exceptional craftsmanship and most importantly of all, luxury shirt making; as well as our many retail stores across the UK. We now proudly have stores in New York, Paris and Washington DC, and Chicago. Of course you can browse and buy our full collection online; a colour brochure is also available, which you can call us to request or pick up in-store, and we have a mobile site for browsing when you’re on the go. ‘Like’ us on Facebook, or follow us on twitter or Pinterest to stay up to date with our latest news and offerings. I’m delighted that you’ve chosen Charles Tyrwhitt; if there is anything that needs improving I would love to hear from you. Please email me directly at ForNickWheelerOnly@ctshirts.co.uk.

Happy shopping
