Introduction to Eton

The Shirt Specialist Since 1928

David and Annie Petterson's wildest dreams could never have foreseen the incredible journey that began with Annie's humble sewing in their kitchen. Little did they know that those initial stitches would lay the foundation for an enduring international business organization. What started as dresses made for friends and neighbors became the catalyst for a multi-generational enterprise. Today, Eton stands tall as an industry leader, exporting premium shirts and accessories worldwide, and shaping the landscape of one of the world's most frequently worn garments.

Throughout the years, Eton's unwavering commitment to craftsmanship, quality, and an unwavering pursuit of perfection has remained unchanged. As we reflect on the remarkable 90 years since Annie's first stitches, we recount the transformative journey that brought us to where we are today, and the exciting path that lies ahead.


Eton leaves nothing to chance in creating impeccable shirts. The fabric is cut with precision, aligning prints and patterns seamlessly along the seams. Single-needle seams, with a density of 7-8 stitches per cm, ensure a flawless finish. Carefully chosen interlinings maintain collar and cuff structure. Buttons are meticulously attached and wrapped with elastic thread for durability. In every step, Eton's commitment to excellence shines through. Experience the meticulous craftsmanship of an Eton shirt, where every detail is thoughtfully crafted.


No shirt is better than the raw materials it’s made of. Cotton is a durable fibre with incredible natural performance. It is soft against your skin and has excellent breathability. For our performance shirts, we only use the finest cotton in the world; specifically, Extra Long Staple (ELS) cotton, a top-quality standard that only makes up 3% of the world’s annual harvest. Sourced from the US and Egypt, the fibre is spun into the most suitable yarns, then woven into exceptionally fine fabrics and finished in Switzerland, the whole process in accordance with Eton’s design and standards.
