Regency England gave birth to the dandy (briefly, a cultured well-dressed man), and at the center was Beau Brummell. Believed to have inspired the modern suit and tie, Brummell is famed for taking five hours every morning to groom and dress himself to perfection. His style spawned a more structured, powerful and serious look Ð one that spanned both cloth and character.
The BrummellÕs Preferred shirt will render the cluster of frumpy white shirts in your closet obsolete, trust us.
It is the perfect blank slate to build your own style, to support your character. And that, we're sure Brummell would agree, holds to the aspiration of being a dandy.

Egyptian cotton is a particular variety that is grown in only a few other places. It is renowned as some of the best in the world. It has an extra long staple, which means it has longer fibers, resulting in a silkier, more durable fabric.
Poplin, sometimes called broadcloth, is a plain weave which means the threads alternately cross over and then under each other. This results in a very smooth and durable fabric that has an almost silky hand feel, particularly with higher thread counts. Also, poplins look very crisp when ironed.
Hugh & Crye dress shirts use a sizing system based on body types. They're ready-made fitted shirts, designed for lean and athletically built men.
We make shirts crafted for the height of your torso (short, average, tall) and your overall build (skinny, slim, athletic, or broad). Our shirts aren't made for the masses. They're made for you.
