A tailored white shirt for Nepal

Nepal Shirt hopes to raise £1m for the country’s earthquake recovery effort

“Everyone needs a white shirt,” says Om Yogi, co-founder of Nepal Shirt, a new charitable venture that allows you to order tailored white shirts at the click of a mouse in aid of the country’s earthquake recovery effort.

Yogi and his team have been tailoring in Kathmandu since 2006 and each shirt – double‑cuffed for men and in a variety of cuts, from ultra-fitted to “relaxed”, and fitted with single cuffs for women – is made to order in crisp 100 per cent Egyptian cotton and comes with a discreet Nepal Shirt logo on the sleeve.


“Buying just one shirt will provide someone with a tent to live in, important medicine or basic supplies such as bottled water,” says Yogi, who aims to raise at least £1m for the earthquake recovery effort. “It will also contribute to employment for weeks, months and hopefully years to come.” All profits (around 50 per cent of the sale price) go to the cause.

Inspiring fashion-led philanthropic initiatives also include Melissa Odabash swimwearfor post-op cancer sufferers and chic scarves in memory of Rana Plaza victims.
