Handsome shirt -
By: Lmburns from Plano, Tx
This is a really handsome shirt which is worth the fact that it will likely need ironing. My husband enjoys wearing it and it looks so nice on him. I only gave it 4 stars because it will need ironing, otherwise I would have given 5.
Great 3 Season Shirt -
By: DanS1 from Rural NY
Although pricey at normal retail, I expect this shirt to be a reliable staple for years to come. Well made, with added warmth and durability with the merino/cotton combo and classic styling.
A real classic! -

This is a beautiful shirt, in design and fabric. The classic tartan plaid is timeless and looks great with blue jeans or dressed up a bit with nice trousers.

FANTASTIC FEEL OF THE MATERIAL MAKES YOU WANT TO KEEEP IT ON FOR EVER. IT IS WARM AND VERY ADAPTABLE TO MANY USES IN DAY TO DAY ACTIVITIES. HIGHLY RECOMMEND AND WOULD BUY ANOTHER WITH DIFFERENT DESIGN OR PLAID.
Beautiful Shirt -
This shirt was purchased as a Christmas gift and it was warmly received. The colors were beautiful and the fabric was soft. Though lightweight ( but not at all flimsy) I am sure it will carry the warmth it promises.
|Luxury Cotton & Merino|
In the late eighteenth Century at the dawn of the industrial revolution, the English developed a method of spinning wool and cotton in almost identical quantities. William Hollins and Company, a spinner and knitter in Nottinghamshire, England, developed the original fabric that was used for decades in sportswear, military uniforms, and outerwear.
The genius of his method was that the yarns were indigenously spun combining the warmth of very soft lambswool and long-staple cotton (from far-flung corners of the trade routes of the English Empire), to engineer a very light fabric of exceptional warmth and durability. The chief characteristic of wool is the individual fiber’s ability to trap body warmth and wick moisture; while the chief characteristic of cotton is its smooth and absorbent nature. The expert blending and spinning of the right percentages of these unrelated fibers became a miracle of the age.
A more commonly acceptable blend of 81% cotton and 19% lambswool, which was woven as a twill and brushed into a flannel, was produced from the beginning for workwear and more rugged intensive activities. This traditional blend is today the basis of our exclusive Luxury Cotton & Merino fabric.
We found that the longer fibers of today’s merino sheepswool spin tighter and more completely with our long-staple cotton than the older lambswool (little lambswool fibers, although soft, are very short ). This tightness of yarn establishes the durability while holding the vivid dyes in these yarn-dyed patterns, which have been carefully selected and executed from our textile pattern library.
