Lipson Shirtmakers-History

It all began in the 1940’s, when Ted Lipson opened his haberdashery in downtown Toronto. Having difficulty finding shirts that lived up to his exacting specifications, Ted decided to enter the manufacturing business, and in 1958 incorporated T. Lipson & Sons Limited. Ever since, the Lipson name has been synonymous with a tradition of fine tailoring and craftsmanship.

Each Lipson shirt is made to exacting specifications using only the finest fabrics and trimmings. Each component, from threads to buttons to interlinings, undergoes thorough testing before being introduced into the collections. Lipson’s aim is to provide customers with the finest shirts available, and they are constantly assessing quality yardsticks to achieve this goal.

Lipson currently offers two fits to meet the demands of today’s discerning clientele. The Classic fit is a generous cut for those who like their shirts roomy, while the Contemporary fit offers a cleaner, more svelte silhouette. However, Blazer For Men offers an additional “Flex” fit, incrementally increasing proportions with each neck size, as opposed to the standard S-M-L-XL sizing scheme.

From Italy to Spain, Lipson scours the globe in search of the finest fabrics available. Working with the worlds top luxury mills such as Thomas Mason and Canclini, Lipson even helps in the development of exclusive patterns and yarns. From 120 two-ply cottons to novelty blends, each fabric is chosen with care to ensure you’re wearing only the best.

From lock-stitched buttons and over 20 stitches per inch, each Lipson shirt is defined by quality details. Contrast button holes and button sew, hot-dyed buttons and a variety of contrast trimmings add flair to traditional garments, while the finest Wendler interlinings ensure your Lipson shirt will withstand the test of time.
