What is a Collarless Popover?
A popover is a term given to any shirt that has a shorter placket - the strip of fabric used to affix buttons on a typical men’s button up shirt. It’s called a popover because you can do just that - “pop” the shirt on or off. Naturally, popovers are a bit more casual, and a perfect answer for when the occasion doesn’t call for the stiffness of a dress shirt, yet you want to show up a bit more refined than just a t-shirt. Our Collarless Popover has an abbreviated collar - really just the collar “band” that underlies most traditional collared shirts. Think of it like a henley - pretty much the same thing, except for being cut from a finer woven fabric.
Our design philosophy for the Collarless Popover was to remove the most defining part of a men’s dress shirt - the collar. What remains is a humble garment: part henley, part casual shirt. The Collarless Popover is cut from a high quality two-ply 120 light-weight indigo cotton, with a 3-button quarter placket, single breast pocket, cuff finished short-sleeves, and a split hem. The Collarless Popover is perfect for warm days, and for layering under other pieces on cooler nights.
