The excellent new Viyella 80/20 Merino Wool and Cotton Candian Maple Tartan Classic Fit Shirt
We’re selecting the best new shirts to wear now—and here is one which is already proving a hit. It’s a Canadian Maple tartan classic fit shirt by that great British brand Viyella, beautifully cut and tailored in their iconic 80-20 fabric, the ultra-warm and soft Merino wool-cotton which they have been making since 1784.
A check shirt is a powerful tool for the modern gentleman. That’s because it’s one of few silhouettes that can tread the line between smart and casual effortlessly—the innate formality of a tailored silhouette is balanced by the relaxed associations of a check print. Pockets to the chest of this piece further enhance its laid-back side and solidify its masculine aesthetic. Today, the most prevalent check patterns in menswear are but a handful, but this Canadian maple is a new and softer take on the style. It’s foundational piece calling to be paired with your favourite chinos, jeans, knits and sports jackets.
It features a two-button adjustable cuff, chest pocket, classic collar and classic fit, in 80% cotton specially blended with 20% Merino wool. With strong twin needle seams, added length, and generous shoulder width all create a practical, functional shirt.
Collar sizes 15in to 18in including half-sizes.
