Our Top Picks
The R&G Mustard shirt is one of our favourites! Named after the two brothers who created yellow mustard, this shirt pays tribute in more ways than one. This corduroy take on a seemingly simple shirt is the perfect oversized look, and great for all year round! The combination of the mustard yellow is a modern twist on the classic design of the shirt, and will have you feeling like you've stepped into a time machine (in the best way possible!).
Another classic shirt that we simply adore is the Whistler shirt in cream and navy. This stoic, seafaring shirt is the epitome of a story book figure. Made from 100% Ramie cotton, it is made with a revere collar - the perfect vintage take on a classic design!
