Jan from Schmidt Clothing captures perfectly The Makers initiative, a busy one man artisan with a full time job who stills finds the time to create low volume, handmade menswear, with a primary focus on shirts.
Based out of Cologne, Germany, Jan places emphasis on intelligent fabric and hardware selection with a complementary attention to detail, both obvious and hidden. Placket and pocket flap linings and selvedge detailing surprises even after months of wear.
Like many Makers, Jan's skills developed in an organic way, making clothes for himself and his family; his self-taught approach results in classic designs augmented with his specific personality. Check out the denim shirt he made for us - a made to measure piece that fits the extensive frame of Jonathan.
Jan's first piece for the Makers initiative is a mid-weight, work wear inspired shirt packed with artful Schmidt details, constructed with a beautiful Japanese selvedge twill.
