In the Studio with Marcus Jamal

We recently toured the self-taught artist Marcus Jahmal’s Brooklyn studio- with friend and photographer Zeph Columbatto in tow. We took a peek around the place while Jahmal tried on his J. Mueser commission for a few final tweaks- ahead of his show at Almine Rech Galley in Paris last April.

Our Shirt Collars

The Gaiola

Named after the purportedly cursed island off the coast of Naples, once owned by Gianni Agnelli himself- this is one of our most popular collar styles. The Gaiola is a full spread with enough collar length to tuck neatly under the lapel of a jacket. We like it with everything from a fine Egyptian cotton dress shirt to a casual linen popover. 

The Madison

A full roll button-down collar, much like the ones made by the American shirtmakers of yore. This is our most casual offering and is a great option when going sans necktie. A buttonless variation of this collar is available upon request and can be seen on our western pearl snap shirts and on select dress shirts- we like this for a jauntier, retro vibe. 

The Jermyn

Our most conservative style, the Jermyn is our ode to the great English shirtmakers of Jermyn street. We created this to be the perfect office shirt, a neat semi-spread collar perfectly matched with a charcoal or navy suit, and with or without a necktie. 


Of course, here at J. Mueser, we are at heart- a custom clothier. While we like the prescribed collars above and have found them useful, we want to make what is a good fit for your wardrobe, whether that's a button-down collar with shorter collar points or a contrasting tab club collar- no job is too big or too small.
