100 Hands is a family business whose Amsterdam showroom works with its atelier in India to create bespoke and ready-to-wear shirts. At least 50 people are involved in the production of each piece, hence the name 100 Hands, with some taking up to 48 hours of hand work. The team adapts ideas such as net embroidery used on traditional shirts called kurtas, to create bib fronts from hand-woven silk. They created a Japanese-chambray dinner shirt (price on request) for a musician client of mine. Bespoke orders take about six weeks and can be placed at the brand’s trunk shows in Europe and Asia, often held in places such as Mark’s Club in London. Gold Line ready-to-wear shirts come in Japanese denim (£395), cashmere and cotton blends.
