What started out as a super cool, affordable sock delivery service some 18 months or so ago has quickly snowballed for Form and Thread. With the recent release of shirts, it won’t be too long and you’ll be able to wear a head to toe Form and Thread outfit, an idea which We’re sure will excite minimalist lovers like ourselves.
The Form and Thread philosophy is simple. Take everyday things (like socks, crewnecks and tees), get them made to an exceptionally high standard and keep the costs down by keeping things on the World Wide Web. They’ve rather honestly shown that nice clothes don’t have to mean high price tags, something that we’re used to accepting, to the detriment of bank balances and rent payments everywhere.
The F&T Essential Shirt is exactly that. It’s what you might cycle to work in, have a post-work beer in and then wear with a pair of shorts at the weekend. Crafted in one of the oldest shirt factories in Europe, they’re made from the finest Italian and Portuguese fabrics, and - starting at £55 a pop - are proving that cheap can be much more than cheerful.
Starting out small with a simple sock service has allowed the guys at Form and Thread to become renowned for quality and honest pricing, meaning that when it comes to a new product such as the Essential Shirt, you’re more than happy to spend 40-50% less on a something you know will be pretty perfect.
So far, a classic White and flecked Ecru have been released, although we’re sure more will be on their way before long. Shop the Form and Thread Essential Shirt, and the rest of their easy, everyday collection here.
