Recognising how difficult it is to have Edwardian boiled front dress shirts properly starched we have now developed a machine washable version.
These have proved very popular with our overseas customers as well as with touring wardrobe departments. Hailed as a modern miracle in certain quarters where the starch bucket has finally been put away.
The bib front is entirely convincing although not quite as stiff as our formally starched shirts.
This can of course be quite an advantage in terms of comfort.
The bib is approximately 16" long and is designed to close with 3 dress studs which are available separately.
There is a tie loop at the back of the neck to prevent the bow tie riding up.
These are a traditional fit which means they are properly capacious.
Single cuffs with buttonholes for cuff links and optional cuff button.
Curved shirt tails.
Machine washable at 40 degrees but do not use steam, additional starch or fabric conditioner
Can be worn with any of our separate collars.
If ordering a separate collar, do keep in mind it is usual to add 1/2" to the neckband collar size so a 15.5" shirt would need a 16" collar.
Finished length from collar to hem 36". Sleeve length 37" centre back to cuff. 14"-20 1/2" neck
100% white cotton
