TM Lewin review – fits available

TM Lewin has four different fits of shirts.

  • Regular Fit shirts are TM Lewin’s most generous cut, with the largest chest and waist size measurements.
  • Slim Fit cut is narrower around the chest and waist.
  • Fitted shirts are even narrower than the Slim Fit.
  • Super Fitted shirts – TM Lewin launched this range in Autumn 2013 and these shirts are the narrowest around the chest and waist in their range.

In the tables below N/A means this particular cut is not available from TM Lewin (but it is likely to be available from other manufacturers). All sizes are in inches.  The chest and waist measurements are the garment sizes. For a typical fit, the garment chest measurement should be 4-5 inches greater than the body chest measurement, but you can adapt this depending on how tight you want the shirt to fit.

 TM Lewin review – History of the brand

TM Lewin began over 100 years ago in 1898 with a store in Jermyn Street, London, England. The TM comes from Thomas Mayes, who ran the original shop. TM Lewin only expanded to second shop in 1989, opening its second store in Lime Street London. In 2006 there was a management buyout and since then there has been rapid expansion. As of June 2016, there were stores in the Australia, Czech Republic, Ghana, Indonesia, Ireland, Nigeria, Phillipines, Singapore, South Africa, United Arab Emirates and the United Kingdom.

TM Lewin review – where are the shirts made?

TM Lewin shirt made in Vietnam.

TM Lewin shirts were made in England until around 2006. As with Charles Tyrwhitt, there is little publicly available information on where TM Lewin shirts are made. The best information I have is that today TM Lewin shirts are made predominantly in China and Vietnam. The most recent TM Lewin shirt I bought was made in Vietnam, as the picture above shows. This story suggests that TM Lewin gets many of its shirts from Itochu of Japan, which has many different manufacturing sites across the far east.
