For most people, a challenge is something to be overcome or endured. For Ayrton Senna, a challenge was the one thing in life to be pursued. As perhaps the greatest Formula 1 driver, Senna constantly strove to push himself to the edge to find the limits of his own character.
With our Senna shirt, we want to embody that spirit of truly living, not for money or fame, but for yourself. Maybe you wonÕt wear it slamming an F1 car around the track. But there are other ways to reach your full potential and some of them might need a nice shirt.
The Senna is part of our spread collar button-down collection of shirts. This one is in a beautiful green, offset check pattern in honor of SennaÕs native Brazil. It features a distinctive double-top button, spread collar button-down and convertible cuffs.

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.
