The shirt has a Kelly collar. This is a small curved collar with a loop-and-button fastening at the front. When fastened, the points of the collar are pulled together, so causing the collar to bulge out slightly.
The cuffs of the shirt have the same loop-and-button fastening as seen on the collar.
The shirt is made from lightweight linen from a mill in Northern Ireland. It is soft, very breathable, and coarse-looking, with a marled weave of grey and off-white luxury linen yarn. The cloth has been washed to give it a less formal, crumpled appearance.
The shirt has a turn-back placket. Buttons are off-white, slightly larger than is the norm for a shirt, and are made from real corozo by a factory in the West Midlands.
The cloth is made by a world-class linen mill, a few miles south of Belfast in Northern Ireland. The mill was built in the late 1800s, and has over most of its life been world-renowned for its exemplary skills in the spinning, weaving, dying, and finishing of luxury linen and flax yarns.
The corozo buttons are made — that’s cut, dyed, and polished — by the last remaining manufacturer of horn and corozo button in England. Based in the West Midlands, the factory has been in the hands of the same family since opening in the mid-1800s: five generations of top-quality button-making know-how.
The shirt is made by a master shirtmaker in Kent. The craft has been undertaken on the same premises since the early 1900s, and with every component made by an individual specialist — a cuff-maker, a collar-maker, a placket-maker, and so on — it is shirtmaking of a sublime standard.
