    Just received the shirt and am really surprised by the quality of it. I ordered mine in XL and while the chest fit fine (I'm a 48 in the chest) the neck was a wee tight (17-17.5 in neck). I'm going to order a XXL for some 'neck' room but all in all have nothing bad to say about this shirt! Going to be stunning with the kilt and vest! (Posted on 2/28/2019)

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