History: Founded in 1776 by entrepreneur Thomas Mason, the brand has been synonymous for elegance and quality which befitted English shirting tradition.
The shirt fabrics from Thomas Mason became the exclusive fabric for British royal family in the 1930’s. The brand gained prominence not only for its aristocratic resonance, but also for its durability as specially designed Thomas Mason shit fabrics were used by Royal Air Force pilots during WWI
Acquired by an old Italian powerhouse “The Albini family of Bergamy, Italy” in 1992, the brand was reinvented with contemporary and colorful double twisted fabrics, using the exceptional Giza 45 and 87 Egyptian cotton with linens coming from Normandy.
The Albini family sources its Egyptian cottons from the Nile Delta, best suited for extra long staple cottons and is vertically integrated, allowing Thomas mason fabrics to maintain their enduring quality attribute. As the owner of Albini group proudly acclaims, we use the best of Egyptian cotton which in incredibly difficult to spin, weave and finish but when it all comes together, the result is simply outstanding.
