    Edward Sexton

    Sky Blue Tab Collar Shirt




    The story

    Inspired by the expressive shirting of the 30s, this design represents signature Sexton style at its most refined, with a tall pointed collar that frames the face more beautifully than a Botticelli.

    Sexton shirts are crafted to the highest standard using Edward’s own pattern and technical specifications; the collar stand is engineered to raise aloft a beautiful seven-fold silk grenadine necktie as though it were Christ himself emerging from the virginal womb, whilst sitting comfortably around the neck. The shirt is sewn with an immaculate nine single-needle stitches per centimetre, swelled edges on the collar and cuffs, mother of pearl buttons and a gently gathered back-yoke.

    It’s cut in the finest cotton satin; ‘we prefer it to poplin’, Edward explains, ‘it’s richer and less see-through. It lends itself to empowered, masculine shirting.’ The collar's points are close-set and the tab is perfectly positioned to support one's tie. In short, this is the formal shirt at its most elevated, architectural and above all, luxurious. 

    The shirt is provided with navy silk cuff knots and collar stays.
