The Bib Shirt draws on the original men’s shirt form the nineteenth century which added an extra layer of fabric for warmth around the chest area. This design echos the idea creating a design feature which elevates the shirt. Traditionally paired with the grandad collar this shirt is a nod to the classic tailored style garment. With the most interesting hand stitched button holes with french seams show the quality of craftsmanship. This relaxed fit shirt is easy to wear, pair it with the Chore Waistcoat and Drawstring Trousers to complete the look.
Made with 100% khadi, a traditional handspun and handwoven Indian cotton. We work closely with our weavers in the Bengal region of Eastern India to ensure the utmost care is employed in the production of our fabric. Khadi is in itself a celebration of ‘perfect imperfection’, with each yard visibly bearing the mark of hand craftsmanship. Pronounced in the 1920’s by Mahatma Gandhi as a ‘symbol of unity’, this industry continues to provide generations of Indian craftspeople with a sustainable livelihood.
