Mens Shirt Styles
Our traditional Classic Fit formal shirt is generously cut with extra long tails, a two-piece, hand turned collar with removable collar stiffeners, butterfly gusset and a split yoke across the shoulders, ensuring comfort and style whatever the setting. Our Classic Fit formal shirt has two collar styles: the Prince of Wales collar and the Windsor collar. The Prince of Wales collar comes in either double cuff or twin-button cuff while the Windsor collar comes in double cuff.
Our Slim Fit formal shirt fits closer to the body and is slightly shorter in the tails than our Classic Fit shirt. It offers all the traditional virtues of our Classic Fit including a two-piece, hand turned collar with removable collar stiffeners and a split yoke across the shoulders, but tailored with a contemporary look. Our Slim Fit formal shirt has the Windsor collar with a double cuff.
Prince of Wales Collar
Inspired by Edward VIII when he was Prince of Wales, this timelessly elegant collar is also known universally as the English collar. The collar tips of the Prince of Wales collar are semi-cutaway but not spread to the extent of our Windsor collar.
Windsor Cutaway Collar
The Windsor cutaway collar is also known as the Italian spread collar. The collar tips of the Windsor collar are cutaway to the sides for displaying a thicker, larger tie knot. It was originally cut to suit the Windsor tie knot.

Tucked in or not, this shirt will always look smart whatever the setting.
Superfine Poplin is the classic fabric for a business shirt. Smooth, lightweight and durable, a high quality poplin fabric always looks smart and professional. Woven from the finest, two-ply, Egyptian cotton, this lustrous, silky fabric is not only cool and comfortable to wear but becomes silkier and softer with each wash. We use only the finest quality poplins which are trademarked with our Royal Soft finish to hallmark purity and excellence.
Pinpoint Oxford represents the best of both worlds - the perfect blend of poplin’s lustre, crispness and sharp colour, with Oxford's relaxed feel. Our Pinpoint Oxford is woven from the finest, two-ply Egyptian cotton and trademarked with our Royal Soft finish to hallmark purity and excellence.
Our Royal Herringbone is a soft, luxurious fabric recognised by its distinctive fishbone effect, achieved by alternating the direction of the twill in the weaving process. A favourite of shirt connoisseurs around the world, it is perfect for work or weekends. Our Royal Herringbone is woven from the finest, two-ply Egyptian cotton and trademarked with our Royal Soft finish to hallmark purity and excellence.
Royal Twill is similar in construction to our Luxury Twill. The more prominent lines on the face of the fabric give it a textured appearance, whilst retaining the soft and luxurious feel. Our Royal Twill is woven from the finest, two-ply Egyptian cotton and trademarked with our Royal Soft finish to hallmark purity and excellence.
Luxury Twill has a beautiful, soft feel and is specially constructed by passing the weft threads over one and then under two threads. This produces a diagonal rib which, by catching the light, gives an attractive, subtle sheen to the fabric. Our Luxury Twill is woven from the finest, two-ply Egyptian cotton and trademarked with our Royal Soft finish to hallmark purity and excellence.
