Jermyn Street is recognised as a street for gentleman’s clothing retailers, where you can find high-quality British made shirts, suits and accessories. Harvie & Hudson have been part of this heritage since 1949. Seven decades later and Harvie & Hudson are stronger and better.
At Harvie & Hudson, every one of our men's luxury formal shirts is of the highest quality, with heritage sewn into every fibre. Our beautiful shirts are designed in the UK and are made from Egyptian Cotton, the finest fabric for shirts. Our white Jermyn street shirts, for example are dedicated to impeccable tailoring with a luxurious look and feel, suitable for all occasions. Our workwear collection includes the famous Oxford shirt with its distinctive weave and soft durable fabric, which is perfect for the modern gentleman. In 2018, Harvie & Hudson introduced a traveller edition shirt for men living in luxurious lifestyles in London’s most exclusive boroughs.

Our Buying Process
You will have noticed that we use different textiles, materials and weaves in our collections. Why? Because we want our customers to have a varied and stylish wardrobe for all seasons. To create our garments, components are selected from different parts of the World and are exclusively designed in the United Kingdom with you in mind.
Have you ever wondered how your favourite retailer chooses their clothing line for the season? Harvie and Hudson are excited to invite you behind the scenes and share some of our buying secrets. We like to think ahead and are always prepared two seasons in advance with extensive advice from our loyal suppliers and trusted buying team as well as feedback from you, our customers. The buying process takes months of preparation, but the beauty of this is that our Directors like to get involved, so you are guaranteed to get an exceptional collection every season. Our Director, Mr Richard Harvie's signature design is strong prints, fun colours and interesting trims. With this in mind, you will have observed that our Summer Collection always has bold colours i.e. Bright Yellow, Avocado Green and Hot Pink etc. Mostly importantly these strong colours are interchangeable and easily mixed and matched with all the clothing we have to offer. We choose are garments based on the season too. In the summer season, it is all about Linens, and in the colder months it is about wool.
Mr Harvie makes the buying decision with his trusted colleague and Flagship manager, Matthew Beadle. They get together to create a unique and stylish range by looking at numerous swatches and trims, from a range of carefully selected supplies. Here are some images that show different coloured and pattern swatches.
