A 140 thread count pink poplin microcheck shirt with a cutaway collar, the Manali is named after the famous British Officer Hill Station in the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh. These high altitude stations were built to afford officers the chance to escape the oppressive summer heat to cooler, more mountainous regions - a luxury not available to many in India.
Reflected in the Manali’s superior fabric construction and brighter color, the British officer of that era maintained a dignified sense of jovial style even in rare moments of cooler leisure. The Manali allows you to dress in the finest thread count Hugh & Crye offers while also brightening 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.
