Bespoke Blue Bengal Stripe Poplin Shirt
£ 70.83 excl. VAT
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.
WH Taylor’ shirts are made from two fold 100% cotton poplin. The standard weave(2 100'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.
All W.H Taylor luxury shirts are handmade and constructed to the highest standards and contain many special features. These features include English fabric designs that are matched exactly at all points to provide flowing seamless lines. The two piece yolk comes together at an angle to create perfectly smooth lines across your shoulders. Our shirts are constructed using fine stitching, which achieves strong and elegant seams. To provide extra luxury single needle stitching is used, albeit costly, it produces a very fine but strong seam. All buttons are sewn using crossed lock-stitches, which prevents them from becoming loose and use of real pearl buttons for their translucent elegance. For More Information >>
