A 140 thread count purple and white bengal stripe shirt with a cutaway collar. The Kullu, along with the Manali, is named after a famous British Officer Hill Station. Located in the expansive valley between the Indian regions of Manali and Largi, the Kullu station is surrounded by forests of pine and deodar and presses up against the peaks of the Himalayan Range. The high altitude stations were built to afford officers the chance to escape the oppressive summer heat - a luxury not available to many in India.
Reflected in the Kullu’s superior fabric construction and bright colored pattern, the British Hill Station Officer maintained a dignified sense of jovial style even in rare moments of cooler leisure. The Kullu allows you to dress in the finest thread count Hugh & Crye offers while also loosening up the office and stepping out of traditional white or blue.

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.
