Say hello to The Rake’s take on the ultimate go-anywhere do-anything shirt; the contemporary denim shirt from Drake’s…

The story

Made on Drakes’ classic fit block, with neat sleeves, single-cuffs and a gently waisted silhouette, this shirt is in many ways the quintessential denim shirt. Cut in Drakes’ preferred choice of softly washed Italian denim shirting, it is dressed up or down with ease. Pair with knitwear and dark chinos on the weekend, or ground a three-piece flannel suit with an earthy textured necktie. Note also the perfectly executed inverted military back-pleat (a Drake’s signature), which aids comfort and maneuverability when wearing the shirt no end. 

The collar is particularly special. Exclusive to The Rake, it is the first tall cutaway collar that Drake’s has produced, and lends these shirts a uniquely rakish perspective. Like all Drakes’ collars it is made with the softest of brushed interlinings for both comfort and to achieve a collar with a rich natural roll, it sits beautifully beneath the lapels of a jacket, whether worn with a tie or open-necked. It was made in Drakes’ traditional Somerset-based shirtmaking workshop, sewn using single-needle stitching throughout and is finished with mother-of-pearl buttons.
