When Jeffrey Costello and Robert Tagliapietra launched JCRT, a plaid men’s shirt line, last year, they took the traditional route: approach mills for fabrics and use traditional shirt factories to make the product. But Tagliapietra, who used to design the women’s line Costello Tagliapietra with Costello, said this process came with limitations.
“There wasn’t very much room to play,” Tagliapietra said. “Sometimes we wanted to change a color, but mills are very reticent about that. Also, we were pulling from the same plaids everyone else was pulling from.”
