ENGINEERED FOR CENTER STAGE
We’re obsessed with technical performance and innovation. Bridging the gap between high performance and comfort, the new Coltrane dress shirt breaks the paradigm of what it means to be formal and functional. Don't sweat it.
Comfort begins with fabric used by the best athletes in the world. The moisture management system moves perspiration away from the body allowing the wearer to feel cool and dry. Be at your best with front pleats softer than butter and flat seams that glide over your skin as your play.
We studied how musicians move and what happens when the body is silent. Featuring an ergonomic shoulder design that extends your range of motion and 4-way stretch fabric to allow for optimal movement, you will play easily and naturally.
No Dry Clean
With advanced fabrics, you no longer need to send it to the cleaners. Simply throw it in the washer and hang dry to restore its natural crispness. That's not all. The fabric is anti-bacterial and anti-odor which controls pit stains and those funny smells.
Undershirts restrict movement and contain body heat. No one wants to sit inside a wet t-shirt under the spotlights. Try the simple liberty of a formal base layer. We think you’ll like it.
The concert stage can be a hot and smelly place. With anti-stink treatment on all Fortissimo fabric, it doesn’t have to be that way. Make it safe to sweat again.
All garments are designed with purpose – to handle the rigors of the world’s biggest stages under the brightest lights. The ergonomically planned articulation of the spaces between your body and the fabric is designed to move along with every movement. It’s not a difference that you can see, but we know it’s a difference you can feel.

"This shirt is fantastic. I perform 40 or more weeks per year, and this is the most comfortable shirt I've ever worn. I don't even have to wear an undershirt anymore!"
Dallas Symphony Orchestra / Berlin Philharmonic
"It's been a long time coming for someone to finally understand what we do and make a change in our existing norm for our work uniform."
"I love how similar it feels to athletic wear. It's extremely flexible which gives me better reach around my instrument. The best part is that the shirt is machine-washable and I no longer have to pay for dry cleaning."
"This shirt is highly breathable and feels great on stage. I would love to see a future where all concert uniform is more comfortable and functional."
Verona Quartet, Juilliard School
“I wore it tonight for the first time in concert - it is just fabulous, so breathable, and so comfortable to play in. I am completely sold! I love how the material is light and stretchable; I never feel any constriction while playing, as opposed to with regular dress shirts. I even wore it to the after-party."

"The Gershwin is unlike any other tuxedo shirts that I have worn on stage. It is light, breathable, and practical. I am happy with the way it feels and how it performs. I would recommend it to other musicians."
