We donÕt need to give you the history of Cornelius Vanderbilt, his name speaks for itself. But we didnÕt really name this shirt after the man, but rather the estate he built in the Hudson Valley. It was known to have one of the greatest views in the region. It makes us think of sitting on the porch with a glass of wine, watching the sun set behind the Catskills.
Our Vanderbilt shirt comes in a purple tartan two-ply poplin fabric with our signature cutaway collar, convertible cuffs and contrast gussets.
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.
