Santamaria Shirt Makers

Traditional shirt-making for the modern era

How the second generation of a traditional shirt maker is transforming the family business for the digital age

From Madrid to London and now the world, Santamaria Shirt Makers is bringing decades old custom shirt-making expertise to discerning customers around the globe. The story starts with Ramon Santamaria, the master tailor whose signature is emblazoned on every Santamaria shirt. His is a labour of love, having mastered his craft for over 50 years to become one of Spain's most respected and award-winning shirt makers.

Using modern technology, his daughter Ana is taking Santamaria Shirt Makers to new frontiers. With a worldwide online offering, the company has developed a unique 3D shirt customiser that allows buyers to choose their fabric, design and look, as well as input measurements without having to visit a physical store.

A Santamaria shirt reflects the very essence of its wearer. Using the finest quality fabrics imported from Italy, shirts are stitched in Madrid under the stewardship of Ramon, ensuring bespoke tailoring and fit quality not to be found elsewhere, whether in-store or online. Proof of quality is found in Santamaria’s 100% perfect fit guarantee which assures customers they will always get the exact shirt they want.

 From design to reality


Santamaria does have physical stores, in Madrid, Spain where Ramon’s expert eye ensures quality workmanship, and in Notting Hill, London where Ana guides customers when it comes to choosing fabric and styling.
