Crafted from the finest materials and tailored to perfection, we are just as passionate about our shirts today as we were more than a century ago. Our world-renowned Jermyn Street shirts are woven from long staple yarns to create a silky yet strong surface. But it's how the cotton is woven that makes them so special.
The original Jermyn Street fabric, poplin is smooth and crisp in texture. Cotton poplin is our most iconic fabric and it forms the basis for the majority of our shirts. It is tightly woven from long staple yarns to create a uniquely smooth, lightweight yet strong fabric. Poplin is the go-to shirting fabric for understated elegance, as it is classic and it is the perfect building block for any formal wardrobe.
Herringbone is an intricate V weave resembling a fish’s skeleton. It produces a smooth feel, a unique texture, a slight sheen and a smart finish. Similarly to twill, this weave drapes well and is easy to iron. Herringbone shirts will elevate any style, whether it’s for a business event or an effortlessly smart casual occasion. This timeless woven pattern is the perfect way to add subtle detail to your look.
This is an elaborate weave with a distinct diagonal line of raised fabric. Twill’s diagonal structure is woven from two-ply yarn spun from extra-long staple cotton which is one of the most robust cotton fibres. Twill fabric has a luxurious lustre and texture and doesn’t crease as easily because of the thickness of the material. Complete with our silk touch finish, our twill shirts will ensure you remain sharp throughout the day.
Dogstooth is a patterned fabric, produced by either using a twill weave, or having the pattern printed on. The pattern is made up of small, regular, interlocking shapes, resembling broken checks, or dogs' teeth, hence where the fabric gets its name. Our dogstooth shirts are woven into a soft, rich texture from 2 fold cotton yarns. These mid-weight shirts are an effortlessly smart choice for the office and formal occasions.
Pique fabric is characterised by a small, textured pattern that makes it appear quilted. Our pique shirts are woven from two-fold long staple cotton yarn creating a supple drape and a classic waffle-textured look. This versatile fabric is used in both sportswear and formal shirts. The popular material boasts a lot of fantastic qualities including breathability, durability and comfort. This is the ideal weave for business casual and casual shirts.
