The Story

This shirt provides a dandyish element with its pleated bib front, but the fabric chosen for it is the real talking point. Made in an exquisite linen-cotton voile, which is a pairing normally associated for lightweight, casual summer shirting, it provides an interesting juxtaposition against the traditionally formal qualities of its design. Although as Chester Barrie's Senior Creative Christopher Modoo points out, linen has more of a history in formalwear than you might think, “linen is often pigeon-holed as a casual cloth yet as recently as the early 20th century, it was used for formal shirtmaking. It feels right to treat this ancient fibre with the appropriate respect”.

Note also that this shade of blue was chosen to perfectly compliment our Chester Barrie tailored blazedo, French blue Kingly dinner suit and navy mogador pistol bow tie, allowing you to wear a complete formal look this season.
