Boston, MA, June 27, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- When ECC Life & Style created a custom hand-stitched white dress shirt for Celtics Head Coach Doc Rivers to be worn in the NBA Finals little did they know this white shirt would receive the worldwide recognition it now has thanks to Celtics Captain Paul Pierce dumping red Gatorade on Rivers as he was wearing it. Yes, this high quality custom made shirt today became the most expensive dress shirt ever. The shirt was auctioned for charity this week and went to an anonymous bidder for a record-breaking $55,000.
“We are honored to have designed this historical shirt for Doc and are pleased to see the major impact it will now have on local organizations due to success of the auction,” said Shawn Harris, ECC Life & Style CEO.
The highly sought after shirt was constructed with single-needle tailoring and featured mother-of-pearl buttons, hand-cut and turned cuffs, a hand-cut collar and the industry’s first ECC Real Signature Ô monogram.
