Linen is a light material, with a nervous hand. Excellent thermal regulator, the linen shirt is airy. This linen shirt has a clean and tight fit and the collar does not collapse. This shirt is a good compromise between fabric strength and freshness. Very natural to the touch, linen is a relaxed fabric by nature, ideal for wearing in summer.

What is linen ?

Linen fabrics are probably those whose development is the oldest. It has been cultivated in Asia for millennia, and was introduced to Europe 2000 years ago. It is a vegetable fibre whose cultivation requires little water. Ancient Egypt was fond of it, but it is in France that flax is nowadays mainly grown.

Linen yarn is obtained from the maceration of the stems on the ground, to extract the fibres. These are then raked, spun and then woven. Linen is a lightweight material, with a nervous hand. Excellent thermal regulator, a linen garment is aerated but easily marks folds. However, wearing a linen shirt does not mean being unstrained. You will need to make sure that the weave is sufficiently dense, the clear cut even if it is slightly adjusted, and that the neck does not collapse.

A timeless and elegant Italian collar

This is the most popular collar. Timeless and elegant, the Italian collar is characterized by its flared opening. This collar is ideal for a daily use.

Polyvalent, it can be worn with or without tie and adapts to any face type. If you are looking for an idea for a tie knot, we recommend a single knot or a double windsor

The Italian collar is also perfectly suited for wearing the bow tie.

Single wrists with bevelled edges that are easy to wear

This shirt has simple simple cuffs to bevelled panels. The simple wrist is the easiest to wear e and therefore the most present in our collection. 

Elegant and minimalist, it has only a single button. We have paid particular attention to the circumference of the wrist so that it is not not too wide but keep the necessary comfort.

A linen work particularly sought after by Thomas Mason

The teillage is a mechanical operation that initially consists of separating the seeds from the straws and then the fibres from each other. The filasse from the teillage is first of all combed with increasingly fine combs : thus obtaining real angel hair. These fibres combed are assembled to form a long continuous tape.

This ribbon is again stretched to obtain a low thickness that we torque slightly to reinforce its strength. Weaving is carried out on the normal looms. On these, the wires are intertwined one by one. 

Mother of Pearl mother-of-pearl buttons, sewn on foot

I sewed 7 buttons, in Australian mother-of-pearl, Mother of Pearl. The first button of the throat is sewn to 6.5 cm of the second button, allowing the neck to fall perfectlyThe last button was stitched horizontally to avoid forming a small fold above the belt. Hand sewn in Zampa di Gallina (crow's feet sewn), the buttons are mounted on a "foot" making buttoning the shirt easier

A perfectly fitted cut and beautiful reinforcing swallows

The cut is adjusted but it will not stick to your body. I made it so that you can wear it inside the pants. It is also long enough so that it does not come out when you are in motion. I also embroidered reinforcing swallows, in the shape of pentagon, which recall the signatures of the shirts of the past. They make it possible to reinforce the strength of the part.

Why buy a Howard's Paris shirt ?

Since its creation in Paris more than 21 years, I have been working every day on the design of parts luxurious by searching for the most beautiful materials and by sublimating with a proachable perfection. I remain very attached to a European fabrication of high quality, a guarantee of its success. All our products are made in a traditional way, in a workshop with a human size, formerly a partner of the biggest houses, by passionate workers and in a quest for perfection. Each seamstress perpetuates a mastery of technique and of the rigueur characteristic of the French way.

Each product is made in limited series, which allows you to enjoy yourself by being sure not to see your item worn by someone else. I want to inject a touch of freshness and originality into each of my products through subtle and delicate details. Each item is designed with the aim of bringing you this small plus that makes the difference and gives our products this incomparable charm.

Finally, if you wish do a touch-up on your shirt (length of sleeves and/or shirt, bending, move the collar button), I suggest you to do it at the workshop before sending or removing your part in store, at your request.
