Ok, we are aware we’ve said it before, but we’ll say it again…the sun is shining (summer is here!), we’ve had Glastonbury, 4th July, Wimbledon is in full swing.. Need we say more? And what signifies summer more than donning a short sleeve shirt to every occasion? Nothing, in our opinion.
Now you may not be a short sleeve fan, but allow us to convert you. Whether you take style inspiration from The Sopranos, David Bowie, or Jude Law in The Talented Mr Ripley, we’ve got the shirt for you.
Our short sleeves come in all fabrics, so if you’re looking for something lighter, we have 100% cotton, 100% viscose for silky feel and flattering fit, or if you want something heavier.
Ok let’s break it down for you…
First up is our Didcot; a classic short sleeve shirt in style and cut. Inspired by fifties bowling shirts and nineties forest raves, the Didcot silhouette is a relaxed classic one. Not to mention, the Didcot (as all our shirts are) is finished with Corozo Nut Buttons. So classic in fact, we’ve run the Didcot in all varied prints, patterns and colourways so there is one for everyone.
Does anything scream summer more than a floral shirt, with short sleeves no less? Honestly, we don't think anything does (apart from a 99 flake, but we digress). The point is, floral shirts and summer days are a match made in heaven. Whether you like your florals bold, subtle, classic, or abstract, our Didcot shirt comes every which way.
We’ve updated our Didcot to include this effortlessly cool print by expanding our methods to include the ancient Indonesian Ikat technique. This technique is a form of resist dyeing that involves shielding areas of the fabric from dye penetration and grouping the threads that are dyed to create a pattern. This new print comes in both Black and Ecru with tones of ochre to pop nicely on each colourway. If florals aren’t your thing, or you’ve got too many striped shirts, then this might just be the print for you.
Stripes are classic and timeless, there is no denying it. However, we like to give our stripes an update every time, and this time we’ve gone for a Rust Stripe shirt and a Navy/Ecru combination. Not to mention stripes are flattering, so we really do all need more than one striped shirt up our sleeves at all times (...and no, we're not even sorry for that dad joke).
Didcot Terry Towel
Short sleeves? Check. Super soft to touch? Check. Now this is a duo we can get behind, and we did. Not only is Terry much softer to wear and to touch, but is also super absorbent (making it pretty ideal for those unbearably hot moments on the tube) thanks to the longer loops of thread used in the pile loops. The jacquard print on the Terry Didcot, with it’s repeat diamond pattern is a nod to it’s golfing heritage, while keeping the wearer street stylish.
A new style featuring a slight 70s collar, curved hem at the back, square chest pocket on front, Corozo Nut Buttons and tonal window checks in both Navy and White colourways. What’s not to love? If you fancy yourself somewhat “born in the wrong generation” because “the 70s and 80s we’re so much better” then this shirt is for you. Wear as you wish.
Do you love the outdoors? Find yourself harking after days spent in the middle of nowhere with no phone signal, but you are in fact sat at your desk? Well the Hayhill Shirt will transport you to the great outdoors. With a regular shirt collar and longer short sleeves, cut in brush cotton blue check, with front, hidden side-entry patch pockets (perfect for keeping things safe) and three embroidered air holes on the back, this shirt is the ultimate cross between city and mountain living.
