Navy Narrow Bengal Stripe Poplin Bespoke Shirt
£ 99.00 GBP
Our famous Bengal Stripe harks back to early days in the nineteenth century. This wonderfully distinctive stripe was the "Civilian Shirt" worn by the English Officers of the Bengal Lancers, one of the most famous regiments in the Indian Army of those days. Some say it was chosen because of its likeness to the markings of the magnificent Bengal Tiger.
W.H Taylor’ shirts are made from two fold 100% cotton poplin. The standard weave(2 x 100's) gives a durable yet smooth finish with a medium English fabric weight. This weave tends to gives the surface colours prominence, making poplin excellent for the sharp checks, stripes and end on ends in which we specialize.
