Shirt Off Your Back

There’s something to be said for quality of construction. Fine brands from all corners of the globe pride themselves on the most sublime execution of cleverly cut clothing in amazing fabrications; but still, even the most exquisite ready-to-wear options lack the je ne sais quois of made-to-measure. And for the very best in bespoke dress shirts, the elite know to trust Anto Distinctive Shirtmaker of Beverly Hills.

Once tailor to the stars of years passed—you know, the ones who really knew how to dress like Frank Sinatra and his Rat Pack crew—Anto Sepetjian set the bar high for custom shirt makers. Today, his legend lives on through his sons, Jack and Ken, who have kept the craft alive for those still savvy enough to understand. It’s about marrying a mastery of old world tailoring and the very best of modern technology to make a shirt unlike any other. Perhaps that’s why those who don Anto dress shirts currently include such high-profile icons as Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro, Nicolas Cage, and John Travolta as well as heart throbs like Leonardo DiCaprio and hip-hop impresarios the likes of Sean “P. Diddy” Combs; not to mention Chairmen of the Boards and similar heavy hitters with a strong grasp on what it means to “look the part.”

And as that list continues to expand, the Anto brand grows accordingly. A second location opened its doors in Sherman Oaks this January, boasting over 10,000 square feet of space and catering to all production needs. Similarly, the new Anto outpost houses a library of some 9,000 previously made patterns so as to intricately document the evolution of styles since their onset. It’s really no wonder that the gentlemen behind Anto can stake claim to such an impressive repertoire; their shirts have been worn in some of the most revolutionary films of our time: Wall Street, the original and its latest installment, Titanic, Casino, American Gangster, and Ocean’s Thirteenall include leading men in Anto dress shirts. But the real appeal is in the secret satisfaction of knowing there isn’t another man in the world that could ever look as smashing in your personally made-to-measure Anto shirt.
