The Guilford is a part of our Professionals Collection, a series of elegant dress shirts in understated blue and white patterns inspired by the historic tailors and craftsmen of London. Cut from a blue end-on-end woven fabric, the Guilford features a traditional semi-spread collar and convertible cuffs which can be worn with or without cufflinks. Two-ply Egyptian cotton makes for one incredibly comfortable dress shirt you’ll want to wear well beyond 9-5. Fitted with back darts and our signature Hugh & Crye sizing, our Professional shirts may just be better than bespoke.

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.
End-on-end fabrics are essentially poplins, but with one colored and one white (or other color) thread. This gives the fabric a heathered appearance up close but looks like a solid color from a distance. End-on-ends are sometimes called fil-a-fil from the French for "thread-to-thread" or Chambray.
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. Our shirts aren't made for the masses, they're made for you.
