The perfect shirt for autumn, winter and early spring has arrived: Viyella’s classic tattersall mini check warm shirt in long staple cotton (80%) and merino wool (20%). It comes in new colours this season, olive and plum. The shirt is beautifully made, and just gets better with washing and wear.
These shirts are part of British history. What turned out to be the perfect autumn-winter shirt-weave of 80% cotton and 20% merino wool was invented and trademarked by Viyella in 1894, the year London’s Tower Bridge opened to traffic. It is still produced because it is still the finest winter shirt. As soon as you wear it you become warm, and comfortable, and this remarkable fabric just gets better with age.
Viyella was the first to blend fabrics—hence the trademark. For these ‘warm handle’ shirts, they use long staple cotton, blended with best merino wool. This gives a soft finish, high durability and of course that comforting, cozy warmth.
Whatever the technical details, the Viyella shirt is made to last. It is also a shirt that says ‘British’ in every detail, and Members buy it at a special Club price.
The collar here is plain: you can order button down if you prefer. Collar sizes are 15-18in (including half sizes), the shirt is white with a mini check in blue, navy and sand combined with either olive or plum.
