The unique, soft roll of the collar has been made possible by removing the interlining. The long points of the SPORT collar are extremely difficult to perfect, but has been done so by seamsters of the highest experience.
The front placket is slightly wider, and the cuff width along the sleeve is slightly narrower than our other button-down shirts. As with the collar, the placket and cuffs do not use interlining to create the classic, nostalgic look. ※The cuff size (around the wrist) has not changed
The fit and sizing is the same as our “Manhattan Model”. The sleeves naturally point forward and the curve of the sleeve has been tailored to match that of the jacket.
The shirt has been washed once already so that it feels soft from the very first time you wear it. The yoke is also narrower than our other button-down shirts.
The "Traditional" Manhattan Classic Fit
Collar To create a traditional feel, the curve of the collar pattern has been reduced. The new pattern employs a lowered neckline to create a relaxed look when the collar is opened.
Body Compared to the slim fit, the sleeves and body have been kept spacious. By preserving the size of the back panel, together with bringing the side seams forward, we have incorporated the essential ideas of traditional British and American tailoring.
Sleeves The special characteristic of the Manhattan Model is its sleeves that naturally point forward. The curve of the sleeve has been tailored to match that of the jacket, which in turn means the cuff of the shirt sleeve and the jacket are parallel.
Details To preserve a traditional look, the shirt has a wider front and sleeve plackets, and also features a wider stitch width in comparison to the Slim Fits. The sleeve plackets employ double stitches to keep this taste. Inspired by the Ivy League style, only the yoke has been narrowed.
Pocket The pocket has been placed slightly slanted on the shirt so that it will appear straight when worn. As an added Ivy Look detail, the stitch on the pocket is straight. (*Button-down shirts only.)
