  • Product Description

    Our Irish-made Grandfather shirt (aka Grandad Shirt, Graddad shirt, Irish Laborer Shirt, Banded collar shirt, Stand Up Collar Shirt, etc.) is inspired by the shirts of Irish working men of the 19th and early 20th century. However it is cut a little nicer and has cooler buttons than the old gents would have worn. Nevertheless, this is a cotton-linen shirt that can take abuse and still look dashing. Pairs perfectly with a kilt when you want something nicer than a t-shirt, but not as dressy as a dress shirt. Looks great with jeans too! Made from an easy care blend of 10% linen / 90% cotton

    The Grandfather shirt is advertised as "linen." The shirt is not linen it is made of cotton with 10% linen woven in with the cotton. Make sure that you read the small print. Remember "the large print giveth and the small print taketh away."  Nancy

    The Grandfather shirt is advertised "linen." The shirt is not linen. It has linen in it but only 10%. 10% linen in a cotton shirt does not make a linen shirt. Remember: "The large print giveth and the small print taketh away." (Posted on 1/7/2023)

    I love these shirts and get so many compliments when I wear them. It is also rare to have a very flattering shirt that is also comfortable, but these shirts fit the bill. I have bought one of each color (cream, grey, and black). Highly recommended. (Posted on 12/24/2022)

    Love this shirt. I bought a size up and it turns out a medium would have been OK. Even so it's very wearable, not baggy on me. Got compliments on it the first time out of the house! I'll buy more of these. (Posted on 11/11/2022)

    I ordered two of these, one ivory, the other black. The mix of linen and cotton is great, giving the shirt an authentic look and feel. Size seems spot on. One shirt had a small separation in a seam after the first washing right out of the package, but Rocky stood behind his product and issued an ok to swap the shirt for a new one. I will be getting more of these when the 100°+ days go away. (Posted on 7/16/2022)
    Great shirt, but will shrink  Leo

    I have all four colors, and love the shirts. They go well with a rustic kilted look, and really work with jeans. A local artisan weaver immediately identified the linen, which was appreciated.
    HOWEVER, they will shrink, even in cold water. Buy a size larger, or even two sizes maybe. The greatest loss seems to be in the sleeves. That being said, I plan to reorder if ever one wears out (which I am trying to do by wearing frequently.) (Posted on 4/4/2022)

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


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 cream, which tones perfectly with most any tartan as cream is a neutral color! Pair this shirt with your favorite kilt, coton hose and flat cap.
