Viyella® Shirts

Button up shirts dressy enough for business, practical enough for everyday.

    Great Fall and Winter Shirt - 12/29/2012

    My wife bought me a Viyella shirt for our first anniversary over 40 years ago -- I just keep buying them as they are my favorite long-sleeve shirt once the weather turn a little cold. You won't be disappointed.

    too large - 12/28/2012

    I got my husband his true size (large) as he is 5'11" and about 180. This was huge on him. I have to return both Viyella shirts (which he loved) and there are no smaller ones available now. Great looking shirt if you know to order down a size. Also shipping costs are very high.

    great, early on - 10/26/2012

    I've hardly had a chance to wear my Viyella shirts yet but so far I'm pleased. They are nicely cut, ample but not too big. I really like the hand, not wimpy like most light weight flannel but not scratchy like wool. I washed them before using and they didn't appear to shrink appreciably. They feel comfortable but we haven't hit cold weather yet. I expect they will be serviceable for the many times I would normally wear a mid or light weight flanner. I've wanted a Viyella shirt for some time but didn't pull the trigger as they are pricey. This sale was too good to miss.

    Soft and vibrant - 2/20/2012
    By: from Western Mass.

    This shirt is really soft but still pretty thin, so its not as warm as some Viyella shirts I've had. For me, that's a good thing. After all, you can always wear a t-shirt underneath. Also, the colors are not shiny, but much warmer than the rather muted photo suggests. Again, a good thing. This is a great Fall/Winter shirt.

    Great looking shirt - 2/20/2012

    The look and fit of this shirt didn't disappoint. It was ordered from the catalog and I expected a little heavier grade material for the price, but I'm pleased with it otherwise.

Luxury Cotton & Merino

Brisbane Moss mill circa 1912.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.

Weaving room circa 1890.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.
