Making history since 1940 Double Two have led the way in the shirt industry providing exceptional quality and value for money. Their elegant classic plain and patterned formal shirts coupled with a wide range of casual shirts from their ‘Double Two Lifestyle’ range are available in size medium to 5XL and 15” to 23” collar.
In the midst of the Second World War, Isaak Donner and Frank Myers, set up the Wakefield Shirt Company to produce quality men’s formal shirts from a small, fourth floor, corner room of a building in Wakefield, West Yorkshire.
By 1946, they had taken over the entire building, becoming a key player in the men’s shirt market. Isaak Donner introduced a patent that his family had developed prior to the war, changing the shirt industry forever.
The brand was born
The patented shirts were designed in a way that the collars could be easily removed by pulling on a tab sewn into the collar attaching seam. Each shirt came supplied with a complimentary replacement collar which could easily be sewn into the place of the removed collar. This proved an instant success and as the shirts had two collars and in some cases two sets of cuffs, the shirts were called “Double TWO shirts”. The innovation became so successful that the company came to be known by the name of the shirts.
Whilst the removable collar and cuffs no longer feature. Double Two mens shirts still keep an exceptional eye for detail and wearability using cotton rich fabrics, colour complementing buttons and stitching.
3 Million Shirts
By the end of the 1980’s Double Two was a predominant part of the Wakefield Shirt Company. Which as a whole had a workforce of over 1,400 people and would sell over 3,000,000 shirts a year worldwide.
