Heavy Linen Signature Black Watch Check


New for AW22, our Checks & Stripes all hail from Emblem Weavers in the Republic of Ireland. For starters, these bespoke fabrics are the first heavy linens we’ve ever used that aren’t a plain colour. Secondly, they’re technically special fabrics thanks to their cross-dyed plain weave construction and laundered finish. Their handle is totally unlike anything we’ve come across before. 

A special version of a check that’s really stood the test of time. You won’t have seen linen like this. Our classic shirt with a regular collar that sits with purpose but not to the point of distraction.

– Straight fit

Machine washable

– Bespoke 218gsm linen from Irish mill, Emblem

– Made in London by shirt experts

– Plastic-free from the factory to your door

Returns and Exchanges Policy 

We hope you love your purchase, however, if you change your mind any unwanted items can be exchanged or returned within 30 days of your order’s delivery date. All returned items must be in their original, unworn, unwashed condition, including all tags. We do not offer free returns or exchanges, instead the customer must cover the cost of postage, a postage label will be generated within our returns portal (more information below). However, please note, for exchanges the new item dispatched from our distribution centre will be sent free of charge. 

As a first port of call, we’ll do our best to address any concerns you might have about your item(s). Please send an email to flax@flaxondon.com with any questions you have – you will receive a reply from one of our small team, addressing your specific queries. Never automated advice. If we don’t have what you’re looking for online, there’s a good chance we have it at our shop, so we will do our best to make the desired exchange happen.

Returns portal

If you would like to move forward with your return or exchange you can access our returns portal, it’s an interface to support any requests and can also create a postal label. 

  1. Visit the portal HERE, enter your order number and press start. Your order number can be found on your confirmation email. 

  2. Select the item(s) that you would like to return, exchange or take store credit for and tell us the reason. Please note that we offer a 10% increase in the gross cost of your original order if you choose the credit option instead of full refund. This credit has no expiry date and can be redeemed in store and online. 

  3. Once you have made your choices, UK customers will generate a Royal Mail returns label for a cost of £5 and overseas customers will generate a label with UPS for a cost of £12.

  4. Pack the items back into the box and either attach the pre-paid label or show the QR code at the drop point for scanning.

  5. If you are using the QR code, a pre-paid returns label will be printed by the Post Office/drop point and attached to your parcel and you will then be provided with a tracking receipt.

  6. And that’s it, we will look after the rest. As soon as your items arrive back with us we will process your exchange or refund for you. 

We also accept online returns and exchanges in our Notting Hill store without the use of our portal. Please send an email to flax@flaxlondon.com if you have any questions about this process.

Our approach to sustainability

Low-Impact Materials

We complement linen’s inherent sustainability by carefully selecting low-impact materials for the trim and detailing of everything we make, including urea buttons and organic herringbone cotton labels.

Plastic Free

Being plastic-free often means getting rid of single use plastic behind the scenes. Since going plastic-free in 2019, we’ve picked up every collection by hand, saving over 5k plastic sheets & 4k plastic packages.


The amount of time we keep our clothing is maybe the single most effective way of reducing our impact. We extend the lifecycle of our clothing by offering free repairs on all our clothing. Repair, don’t replace.
