After several requests from long standing customers for a shirt of the same quality as our original guide shirts but made for summer use, we have produced this cotton shirt. Based on shirts I used to buy that are no longer available, this cotton shirt is constructed from the finest British made super tough 290 gsm twill. We pre wash all the fabric to prevent shrinkage* and each shirt is made one at a time from start to finish. Each is constructed on a traditional pattern with twin row top stitching and overlocked edges. The classic overhead design means that you have no interfering buttons or fastenings in the way when working close to your body. the traditional cut collar will stand up to keep the sun off if necessary, and the cuffs are closed with double antique brass snap fasteners or are cut roomy enough to roll up. The colours are khaki drab ,Lovat Green that are both nature colours but equally at home when not in the field and navy Blue. There is an extra layer of cloth on the shoulder yoke and a gusset in the back for flexibility. Make no mistake, this shirt is tough and you will probably hand it down before you wear it out. The vintage washed appearance it takes on means this tough shirt looks good to wear for years of use.
*NOTE: we have now employed a pattern cutting protocol for these shirts that allows for the 3% shrinkage expected. We no longer pre wash them. Wash gently at 30 degrees.
Available in Khaki, Lovat Green and Dark Navy
Each shirt is made to order and subject to a delay whilst it is made post order, this can be up to six weeks or more, however we do hold some stock so please enquire here.
