In 1899 Tailor August Stenström was overwhelmed with orders for making the best, most fashionable shirts that had spread far and wide, and all the most elegantly dressed men wanted a Stenströms shirt. That same year, the first Stenströms factory was built in the heart of Helsingborg. By 1912, success was undisputed. With 140 employees, this was Scandinavia’s largest shirt factory. 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. And their experienced craftsmen and women still do most of the sewing by hand.
Stenstrom’s skilled designers, cutters and tailors have refined and perfected the manufacture of mens casual dress shirts over the course of a century. This heritage contributes to the style, quality and comfort that set stenstroms shirts apart as one of Swedens most respected brands. Attention to detail is evident with each of their shirts consisting of 23 components that are cut and assembled with upmost precision using only fabrics from the foremost European manufacturers, most of them woven from the finest Egyptian cotton.
