Arjun Ramphal becomes the first man to wear a Stitchless Shirt SUPERLUXE

~ First time ever. The Biggest Innovation in the Apparel Industry ~

India, SEPTEMBER 24TH 2013 - Arrow, the brand with a legacy of having dressed gentlemen for over 160 years and known for innovations, now launches the biggest innovation of all time – SUPERLUXE -The Stitchless Shirt, for the FIRST TIME ever in India – A shirt with no stitch!
A shirt is typically made from different pieces of fabric sewn together. This leads to creases on the seams, and manufacturers have been trying various ways to avoid this disadvantage and constant research led to the birth of a technology used in the Limited edition Stitchless shirt. The SuperLuxe technology that makes this feasible adopts eco-friendly high polymer thermo fuse adhesive material on the seams.
Speaking at the launch of their newest innovation, Rishi Vasudev, COO, Arrow, Said: “Arrow believes in bringing the best to its customers and with the SuperLuxe: Stitchless shirt, it brings forth an innovation, which is the world’s most advanced technology offering 100% wrinkle-resistance; making it the most Flawless and Perfect shirt.  The product is a revolution in shirt manufacturing and is going to change the industry.”
The product is engineered without a single visible stitch and the seams are fused eliminating the problem of creases and puckering on seams of shoulders, sides, collar or the placket. Adding to the contemporary styling are the buttons which too are snap buttons to eliminate sewing threads to complete the flawless look. The fabrics used are of the highest quality in 2 Ply cotton, which gives the shirt a very premium look.

About Arrow

Arrow is the blue-blooded American brand: bold, timeless, elegant.
For more than 160 years this symbol of quality and trust has ruled the hearts and minds of audiences. It has innovated every important style: introduced the detachable collar, launched the adjustable waist bands in trousers and brought the wrinkle-free, stain-free concepts to clothing. Today, this exceptional brand has a range that suits the corporate corner office decision-maker as well as it does the young professional who, someday, seeks to get there.


Born in 1851, Arrow had a single-minded agenda – to dress gentlemen. During that time, America was at the height of fashion consciousness. Men from different leagues were on the lookout for fashion statements to distinguish themselves. Arrow became the solution they were seeking. With a policy of ‘no-compromise on quality’ the brand soon came to symbolise fashion’s ‘Best of the West’.

For more than 160 years now, Arrow has been an enormously successful innovator. In the mid-19th century when stiff, formal suits were the order of the day, Arrow came up with detachable collars. Indeed, the company created over 400 styles.
Another product that Arrow is famous for is its White shirts. From the days, one hundred years ago, when white shirts were the only acceptable attire in offices, Arrow had a range that not only out-styled every other brand it also outsold them. Even today, that tradition continues.
Its popularity as a shirt brand and the fact that it had achieved such symbolism inspired the famous Broadway musical, My Arrow Collar Man. It was a show that, like its shirts, swept America off its feet adding further to the legend of Arrow. By the mid-1920s, Arrow was manufacturing more than 4 million collars each week – barely meeting the raging demand.
On the heels of this came the legend of John F. Kennedy. When the dashing, young president stormed into the White House he brought along with him the presidential wardrobe. No one was willing to wager a bet, but the shirts that he wore were Arrow. It was as a tribute to him that Arrow created the Kennedy Collection – timeless classics. 

Arrow's rich past is a reflection of American fashion over the course of nearly two centuries. What started off as a one-room workshop in Troy, New York, in time, became an international corporation with distribution in more than 90 countries.

Arrow in India
Arrow came to India in 1994. It was a time of great change; for liberalization had been announced three years earlier and a new energy was sweeping the lives of her people. The old was being discarded for the new. Arrow was one of the agents of this decisive change and has stood for grooming the Indian male ever since. With its heritage & penchant for extraordinary perfection, Arrow made sure India Inc reached out to the world with the perfectly tailored suits & immaculate shirts.

Today, Arrow is a premium American lifestyle brand that offers a complete range of men’s & women’s wear, which includes:
·         Arrow Formals - comprising of Presidents Collection and a premium range of Suits, Shirts and Trousers
·         Arrow Sport – Leisure and weekend wear, to complete the American Sports lifestyle
·         Arrow New York – An international line of slim formals for the youth, that is minimalistic, modern and trendy
