Everything that goes into making this shirt is natural: 100% linen, organic cotton labels, and urea buttons. Your shirt will get better with each wash as the colour subtly fades and develops a unique character.
Sizes are all measured in inches after the shirt has been washed. The model is 6ft with a 38in chest and wears a Medium
The model is 6ft with a 38in chest and wears a medium and 32. All sizes are in inches.
Our sizing is industry standard, but if you're normally between sizes, we'd recommend sizing up. Our linen is tumbled but not pre-washed because it gives the linen a better finish which means it will shrink 3-5% during the shirt's first wash.
Jackets wear true to size. They are dry clean only, so shrinkage isn't a necessary consideration. We actually recommend spot cleaning them with a damp cloth, and only dry cleaning when you have no other choice.
Our shorts are true to size, with increasing leg width and length as waist sizes increase. We recommend wearing them for a few months before washing, spot cleaning with a damp cloth as necessary. They'll shrink ever so slightly in their first wash but give again after a few wears.
Material: 100% linen. All of the flax used in our linen is grown in Belgium & northern France. The linen is made by Baird McNutt in Northern Ireland and/or Belgian Masters of Linen®, Libeco. Manufactured in London by Tower Garments. Collected by hand.

The gold standard for washing our linen shirts is a lukewarm hand or machine wash, followed by a hang dry. DO NOT tumble dry. We recommend ironing the shirt while it’s slightly damp, inside out if possible. Or through a pillow case. Linen is anti-bacterial and therefore we also recommend that you do not over wash your shirt.
Dry clean only. We recommend spot cleaning with a damp cloth where possible and only dry cleaning if absolutely necessary. DO NOT tumble dry.
Machine wash on 30 degrees or below. We recommend spot cleaning with a damp cloth for the first few months and only washing if absolutely necessary. Give them a good shake out after a wash and iron inside out if you want them totally crease free. DO NOT tumble dry
