A well-cut shirt is the backbone of any man’s wardrobe. First manufactured in 1871 by Brown, Davis & Co. of Aldermanbury as a ‘coat style’ garment with buttons, the shirt in its current form has changed little since the end of WW1, apart from the addition of a breast pocket in the 1960s when waistcoats began losing popularity. Shirt fabric is predominantly cotton, with various shirting weaves and fabrics available, and comes in many qualities and styles, from check, to plaid, to plain. The cut, weave and type of shirting determines how a shirt looks and ‘hangs’, and we offer a huge selection of shirting fabric and accessories for all of your shirting needs.
