We named this shirt for bartender George A. Williamson who invented the Rickey at DC's Shoomaker Bar. Williamson was sharp with an intellect versatile enough to converse with all the bar's patrons on a variety of issues. Our Williamson shirt is a lot like the man. It doesn't peacock around (it's BLUE) and it works consistently with all people at all times.
Our Williamson shirt is made of a two-ply poplin in a complex blue check and features our signature tall semi-spread collar and convertible cuffs (can be buttoned and worn with links).
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.
