Men’s Work Shirt in PlasmaDry™ midweight corduroy – made to measure
Throughout the centuries corduroy has meant so many different things to different people, it has been worn by royalty then later became the choice for workwear during the industrial revolution. It was then worn as a mark of defiance by the intelligentsia which led in turn to the chilled look of the hippie.
Whatever corduroy means to you at the moment, this shirt will cause a bit of a re-think. A classic over shirt reinvented in our brilliant PlasmaDry™ fabric.
The style is rugged McNair with patch pockets, locker loop on the back and a back placket with subtle contrast van dyke stitching. Coming down the mountain means simplifying a little and shortening the cut. And as usual, if the fit isn’t perfect we will make it exactly right with our made-to-measure service which still costs no extra despite having to create a unique pattern.
The strength, beauty and added PlasmaDry™ performance make this shirt another extremely versatile everyday shirt.
A new chapter for a traditional fabric. Corduroy, along with moleskin has a very rich history belonging to a a group of of fabrics which in the early 19th Century was widely known as fustian. In essence a strong, hard wearing woven cloth made with a linen warp and cotton weft. The Calder Valley in West Yorkshire and neighbouring East Lancashire became synonymous with fustian production however by the end of the 20th Century virtually all the companies had disappeared. The best moleskin and corduroy in the world is still supplied by the last remaining supplier and manufacturer in the Calder Valley.
These exceptionally hardwearing and beautiful fabrics that have unchanged specifications going back generations are now supercharged with PlasmaDry™.
PlasmaDry™ is a big story. It changes everything by bringing previously unseen levels of water and stain repellency without using the harmful fluorocarbons still heavily relied upon in the world of plastic jackets. The laser surface enhancement creates a permanent structural change to the fibres in the weave to provide a unique and durable water repellency and stain resistance. The fabric is changed at a molecular level without affecting the soft feel or natural look. Its genius allows us to meet the McNair promise of beautiful natural fabrics, enhanced for performance – where look and protection are one.

Immaculate fit, sturdy but soft corduroy, saturated colors that don’t fade, quality built. I’m a Large in shoulders and chest and a Medium in waist. Made to measure is the way to go if you have an athletic frame and don’t want to have a floppy shirt. Hefty price but fully worth it – this shirt will last a very long time. Over the moon with it.
I got the parcel earlier today and am so happy with the shirts, thank you very much for making them!
I’ll recommend you to my friends.

Thank you so much, our beautiful shirts have arrived. They are absolutely fabulous and we can’t wait to wear them. The workmanship is an extremely high standard and I am so glad I chose the chilli red.
It’s just turned up – it’s fantastic and a great fit from a 6’9” difficult to fit ex rugby player, there’s not much that fits as well.
