Minimal ironing required if you are careful.....
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 7 August 2018
This is a very comfortable shirt and I have taken to wearing it regularly, as normal daily attire, in conjunction with one of my leather waistcoats.
It has the feel of a canvas type material yet is very pliable and soft to the touch. After half a dozen washes it has kept its colour well. I always tumble dry my shirts as a batch on their own with no other items. I stop the machine early to place them on hangers while they are still hot, and this usually results in a need for minimal ironing .... and hopefully none at all. This worked so well with this black shirt that I bought the cream version too. The cream was more like white. It seemed to behave differently, and definitely required a lot of ironing.
They each came with two string thong neck ties.. One was a soft man made material, and the other was real leather. I preferred the leather but the quality was not consistent between the two. One was tough enough that it could have been a boot lace, but the other was very poor and snapped easily as I closed the collar. The shirts are well constructed with sturdy seams and the stitch work looks good and had no loose threads. The eyelets are well fixed but I am tempted to stitch or glue down their backing flap. The photos are of an untouched shirt that was hung up straight from the drier. As I always turn my cuffs up and tuck the shirt in to my trousers, it is more than good enough for my needs.
