A History Of Craftsmanship
Our story begins almost 100 years ago, with a small brick-and-mortar store in downtown Homewood, where S.G. Shaia carefully cultivated his customers with the same care and personal attention he gave to his garden behind the store. Over four generations, Shaia’s has evolved from dry goods and notions into a premier men’s clothing store that has been recognized by Esquire Magazine as Best of Class for 12 consecutive years.
With Shaia’s Medical Heritage, Ken Shaia brings to physicians the same exacting craftsmanship that has defined our clothing for three generations. The process of creating our medical coats was long and careful to ensure that every aspect of the product represented in style your professional achievements.
- Ken studied the coats of dozens of physicians to understand the wear they endure over years of use.
- His team of pattern cutters, tailors and stylists used their years of expertise in fit and comfort to craft the finest details of our physician’s coats.
- Using our prototype designs, Ken tested multiple fabrics until he was satisfied that his team had created something truly unique.
A Shaia Medical Heritage Coat is made, not in a shirt factory, but by craftsmen who specialize in coats. It’s just one of the characteristics that distinguish our physician’s coat from all others.
These elements combine to create a unique, stylish, yet functional, garment that has been hand-crafted and fits to perfection; a coat worthy of your career. Our clients agree—85% of our business is with repeat customers.
