In the Tour de France, the yellow jersey is worn by the race’s overall leader. No one has worn this jersey more than Eddy Merckx. In fact, no one has won more professional cycling races than Merckx.

We dedicate this shirt to the superhuman endurance and dedication that it takes for someone like Merckx to compete to the point where, at one point in his career, he was winning the equivalent of a bike race a week for 6 years.

The Merckx is part of our spread collar button-down collection of shirts. This one is a beautiful orange, offset check pattern in honor of Merckx’ native Belgium and the yellow jersey he wore so often. It features a distinctive double-top button, spread collar button-down and convertible cuffs.

This shirt is final sale and cannot be returned for a refund. Please give us a call at 202.250.3807 or email us at service@hughandcrye.com if you have any questions at all regarding sizing.

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 (skinnyslimathletic, or broad). Our shirts aren't made for the masses. They're made for you.

My first purchase from H&C that made me a loyal customer. I've worn this one the most out of all my H&C threads. I would buy two at $39.

This was my first H&C purchase, and is till my favorite shirt. 5'9", 160-168 lbs., athletic build and I can wear an Average/Athletic or Short/Athletic. Keep making awesome shirts!

Fits perfectly

By Gerard F from Washington on 2012-08-29

I got this shirt as a present from my wife and I really like it. Not only fits perfectly, but the colors and style are superb, especially during the summer season. Also, my friends and even people on the street ask me about the shirt and talk about the way that a casual outfit can be infused with elegance and panache by wearing this shirt.

Da Bears

By James Roper from Chicago, IL on 2012-06-12

Great shirt and the unexpected bonus is Chicago Bears colors. The plaid is better in person and works with jeans or chinos. I dont love the 2nd button on the collar but it does add a little something interesting to the shirt.

The Fit Matters

By PG from Awesome Shirt! on 2012-06-12

I picked up one of these shirts, in addition to the Senna and am really happy to report that H&C really knocked it out of the park with their description of the fit. I'm 5'9 and I weigh about 155lbs and it is incredibly difficult to fit something that fits correctly. Usually the sleeves are too long and the sides billow enough to support me as a parachute. Not the case here. Fit is trim, color looks great, and the quality looks nice. I'm not a huge fan of the second button either, but I can live with it.
