Introduction to Stenströms Shirts

The most stylishly dressed European men wanted a Stenströms shirt. Today, over 100 years later, their reputation for unique quality has spread far beyond the country’s borders. Their attention to detail and sense of quality remain unchanged. Through experience and hard work, they have found the golden ratio between the quality of the shirt and the ability to adapt the shirt to the client's preference –  resulting premium quality and the benefits of tailor-made craftsmanship to the public.

Their pursuit of perfection is relentless as they roam the planet in search of the best materials and the latest design influences – so they can keep developing the shirt and the experience of wearing it. Back home in Sweden they are the preferred choice of the Swedish King and Queen, and have been granted the royal warrant “Purveyor to the Royal Court of Sweden”. 

The quality of a shirt is the sum of many details. The greater the attention to these details, the greater the quality. Each Stenströms shirt consists of 23 components that are cut and assembled with exacting precision. The process involves 60 distinct operations that are checked at five critical inspection stations. Over the course of a century, the comfortable, elegant fit has been perfected by skilled designers, cutters and tailors.
