Product Description

Crisp. White. Fitted. The Great White Shirt is our interpretation of that take-anywhere, go-with-nearly-anything tailored white shirt. Beautifully crafted with long-staple, 100 percent fine cotton shirting with an easy-care finish (read: requires very little ironing), each slim-cut white blouse is appointed with engraved mother-of-pearl buttons.  Buy it in copious quantities or curate a collection of Claridge + King’s G.W.S. varieties as our new styles debut.  (Like a little color? Try the Ivy, cut the same as our G.W.S. it's available in myriad colors and patterns.)
