This is a variation on our standard neckband Edwardian washable boiled front dress shirt (SH2291).
They are fully machine washable and the bibs are double fused, so they come up perfectly stiff after washing with no need for the traditional starching process.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.
We have now introduced them with wing collar attached which is not strictly historically accurate but these have proved very popular with wardrobe departments.
The collar shape we have used is the CO138, the Edwardian wing collar which is 1¾in high at the back rising to 2½in at the front.
The bib is approximately 16in long and is designed to close with 3 dress studs which are available separately.
These are a traditional fit which means they are not slim fit. There is a tie loop at the back of the neck to prevent the bow tie riding up.
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
Finished length from collar to hem 36in. Sleeve length 36in centre back to cuff.
100% white cotton
