    I have this shirt in 3 colors and wear them with jeans for going out at night or with the kilt for a less-than-formal function. They are bada** and, most importantly, my wife thinks they're hot. (Posted on 10/28/2019)

    Loved this shirt, great feel and quality. Ordered a 3x and noticed it was a little snug across the chest. I would advise to order a size larger than normally worn. (Posted on 8/13/2019)

    Just got this one went up one size for the neck measurements ,fits great and can't wait to get it on with the Kilt or my jeans . Only thing that might make it better would be if the tail were 4 to 6 inches longer (protect that kilt) think about that . (Posted on 12/19/2018)

A Brief History of the Grandfather Shirt


The banded collar shirt first appeared in the Victorian age with the invention of detachable collars. It was practical and saved on washing. Naturally, many men simply left off the collar if they didn't need it. And this was especially true of working men such as the Highland ghillie or the Irish navvy. It was comfortable for long days in the fields or on the docks. 


Though they were standard work-a-day shirts for many classes in many different countries, it was in Ireland that these shirts became a form of traditional dress, like the aran sweater (the “jumper”) or the flat cap. It was in Ireland that the name “Grandfather’s shirt” was coined and quickly shortened to granddad shirt or graddad shirt. 


Our Grandad Shirt is Timeless Fashion


Traditional Irish grandfather shirts were, and still remain, practical yet sleek and dignified menswear. You can find old photos of everyone from Welsh coal miners to American cowboys wearing them (not to mention the occasional businessman relaxing after hours). And yet nothing about the Grandfather shirt feels out of place in the 21st century.


Irish Shirt Quality Granddad Would Approve of


A true Granddad shirt will be made of cotton or linen, or a blend of the two. Ours is made in Ireland of rich cotton with just a touch of linen. There’s just enough linen to add durability and that wonderful nubby texture, but not so much that the shirt will require ironing. It’s just about perfect and will only become more and more comfortable over the years. The front features the traditional placket with a dozen small decorative buttons. On the back you’ll find a reinforced yoke and gusset for ease of movement.


The Perfect Traditional Work Shirt for Your Kilt OR Jeans!


Cut long and roomy, this authentic Irish graddad shirt will easily fit in your kilt or even jeans without pulling out. We offer a variety of colors including a light blue which tones perfectly with most ancient color palette tartans! Pair this shirt with your favorite kilt, brown leathers and flat cap.
