Hawes & Curtis has been producing quintessentially British menswear for over a century and we have showcased these traditions and standards on Jermyn Street in London and now with our website, worldwide. We have always been innovators in our industry yet have also remained faithful to the designs and styles that made us the recognised leader in menswear. Our men's formal shirts have been our staple offering ever since we entered the business. Our shirts come in a variety of fittings to account for different body types as well as different personal tastes. Our offerings on this page all come from our Classic Fit.
Our Classic Fit shirt is the style most closely associated with traditional British work shirts. Where shirts in more contemporary styles are designed to hug the contours of the body, the Classic Fit is cut more generously at the waist to allow for a shirt with a roomier feel. It is the traditional formal look for a well-dressed gentleman. Our classic men's shirts are made of only the finest material. We use 2 ply 100s cotton and then add a unique silk touch finish. The shirt is soft and smooth to the touch yet also more durable than your typical formal shirt. The silk finish helps the shirt keep its form even after it has been worn multiple times and also makes it easier to iron.
Although the shirt's fit is traditional, we offer numerous colours and patterns in line with today's work wear style and fashion. We offer solid colours as well as patterned designs that are all designed to fit in a business office environment. If you want a true traditional outfit, however, then you may want to try our pristine white formal shirt. The perfect white shirt can mix with just about any suit and any combination of accessories.
Our classic formal shirts come in both buttoned cuffs for those who prefer a simpler look or double cuffs for those who want to add a pair of cuff links to their shirt. The shirts come in a semi cutaway collar and a full cutaway collars (a design originated by Hawes & Curtis for neckties tied with a Full Windsor knot).Take a look at our offerings and use our online style guide to find the precise measurements that best fit you. If you want a look in line with the traditional British style then Hawes & Curtis's Classic Fit men's shirts are a perfect choice.
