shadow plaid shirting

what goes into the making of our shirts...

Commun des Mortels is men's fashion for those who value quality over quantity, looking at price per wear, not just price at the checkout. We focus on men's tops with proven style value, using premium fabrics sourced in the EU and Japan, and small family factories in Portugal and Italy.
We (literally) travelled the world to develop the best plaid shirts we could. Scroll on to discover our journey...

made with japanese fabric

Sourced and imported by us, directly from the manufacturers in Japan - our luxury plaid is fluid and drapes like Silk.

painstakingly crafted in italy

Painstakingly cut, and sewn through an intricate process, matching the fabric at every seam, our shirts are crafted by a small, family-owned factory in Andria, Italy. They look and are expensive but they should last for years (making price per wear pretty reasonable).

sustainable and 100% sweatshop free

Using a cotton/rayon blend, our shirts are more environmentally friendly than water and resource guzzling cotton, or synthetic versions.

...And since they were manufactured under stringent Japanese and EU controls, from start to finish, you can be sure that they are both sustainable and 100% sweatshop free.

minus the middlemen so you reap the savings

We don’t buy in white label from other suppliers, and we don’t wholesale to other brands. This means we’re able to sell luxury garments, directly to you, at the most competitive price.
