Hawes & Curtis is renowned for its quintessentially British Formal shirts. All the men’s shirts in our Formal range have been crafted from the finest two-fold-cotton. This superior cotton creates a sturdier garment and gives it a softer, more luxurious feel. Each Formal shirt has been perfected with a unique silk touch finish which creates an even finer fabric with a smooth, silky surface. As well as being exceptionally comfortable to wear, this special finish also makes shirts easier to iron and ensures the quality of the cotton lasts even longer.
As many of our clients lead busy lives, Hawes & Curtis has also created non-iron Formal shirts. These luxury shirts are made from the same high quality two-fold-cotton and have been finished with the latest anti-crease technology. This ensures that when shirts are hung up to dry after washing, they remain remarkably crease free and exceptionally easy to iron.
There are four flattering fits available in the Formal range. Extra slim fit shirts are the most fitted style and cater for gentlemen with athletic physiques, searching for a sharp, streamlined look. The slim fit Formal shirts are gently tapered at the waist and have a relaxed, contemporary silhouette. This is a very popular fit as it combines both style and comfort. If you are searching for a medium fitting style, choose the tailored fit as it offers a tailored cut that is not as generous as the classic fit and not as closely cut as the slim fit. The classic fit has the most generous cut and is suited to men who prefer a looser feel or men with larger builds.
There are several collar styles available in the Formal range including the full cutaway collar which complements the Windsor knot, and the versatile semi-cutaway collar which accommodates every tie knot. You can also choose between double cuffs or single cuffs. Hawes & Curtis’ Formal shirts feature traditional designs which are suitable to wear to the office. These exquisite Jermyn Street shirts offer classic British style for contemporary gentlemen searching for a sharp, professional look.
