Construction techniques: Classic collar & collar stand, placket & cuffs, french seam, eased sleeve head and double shoulder yoke. You will have the option of finishing the hem with a flat binding or a standard double fold hem.

Suitable fabrics: The Classic Shirt works best in a lightweight, breathable fabrics that have a bit of flexibility. You can choose fabrics suitable for warm or cold weather but it’s a good idea to choose something that will be soft next to the skin. Fabrics such as cotton poplin/lawn, linen, very lightweight denim, needlecord, lightweight twill and flannel are all suitable.

If you’re choosing a stripey fabric you can play with the direction of the stripe on the collar, back yoke, cuffs and plackets.
