Product Details

These shirts are woven and embroidered in England, and made in Scotland - once again we're sticking to our British roots.

The shape of the shirts are that of a traditional work shirt. Loose and comfortable to be warn throughout the hottest Summer months with two simple rear side pleats to help with dexterity - no darts in sight here... We've also removed the front placket (button train track for layman) to create a cleaner look. 

Other areas worthy of a mention are the pure mother of pearl buttons - a strong and durable natural material that's kindly produced by certain molluscs.

All of our Cotton comes from mills based in either Manchester or Lancashire. The woven cotton for the shirts is made in England, and has a beautiful soft slubby texture to it. Its slightly looser weave means that it is lovely and breathable for high Summer days.

After the cotton is woven, it moves up to Clackmannanshire, a small county in Scotland just above Edinburgh, where it is cut and sewn together by a small but dedicated factory. It took us a while to find the right place, but we're really impressed with the level of quality that the factory has produced.

FIT AND FINISH

For the Summer Shirt it had to be comfortable to wear whether you were in hot London or hot Greece. As a ginger, I'd say both can be equally unsettling. As a result we chose to have this shirt made in a slightly oversized shape. It's boxy without being a tent, loose without being too baggy. Just enough so that when it's 32 degrees and humid, the air can move around.

The shoulders and sleeves have plenty of length in them so that even big broad friends can be in comfort, and the chest pocket provides ample room for a pair of large vintage shades.

On to the collar - many people will say why not the Cuban cousin. My answer, a traditional collar is more widely wearable and better looking. Think summer weddings, or summer beach days - both equally as applicable as the other with our variation. What's more, Cuban collars are everywhere at the moment. Boring.
