When Heinrich van Laack founded his company in 1881 in Berlin, he had a clear goal in mind: he wanted to manufacture the best shirt in the world. His vision still stands today, as van Laack sets high-quality standards based on many years of experience in manufacturing high-quality shirts and blouses. This method has made the company a synonym for craftsmanship, precision work, and love for detail. The products of van Laack excel in high-quality materials, the best quality, and a distinctive and individual style. The best weavers in the world produce selected fabrics for van Laack, made from the highest quality yarns. The characteristic van Laack button with three holes is manufactured using the Trochacea deep-sea snail. It is sewn on with a button shank, which provides the button with extra durability.
