  • 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

    I ordered a blue grandad shirt a year or so ago, and should have heeded the recommendation of ordering a size up. Mind you a great shirt though.
    So I ordered a black grandad shirt in XL (one size up) totally a different weave, all cotton and shrunk up pretty good in the dryer once through. Fearing if my wife will throw it in the dryer ever again it will shrink to a child’s size. Pretty snug now, more so than the blue grandad shirt previously bought. (Posted on 11/27/2023)

    Bought a second one during the St. Patty's sale to match my cream colored one already in the closet. Love the option of having a black shirt for a casual (kilted or not) look. Couldn't pass up the discount for such a great shirt.

    Just about every shirt/top I wear is a MED, but I wear a small in these ones for a better fit. The MED was just a bit too roomy for me. Even as a 'tighter' fit, it's still very comfy once it's broken in some.

    Durable and versatile, maybe next year I'll get a grey one too! (Posted on 4/3/2023)

    This is a wondrous garment, lots of buttons but you can have a hydration break half way along. Make it an event not just a dressing chore. The fit and quality are excellent, i look great in this and has become my new go to shirt. (Posted on 2/9/2023)

    As with all items I've bought from USA Kilts, these shirts are fantastic! The thickness of the material is perfect. Not light weight but also not a heavy weight. A lot of shirts out there are a bit thin where you can see through them. Not these.

    I was able to purchase these on sale and that made it easier for me to afford. Due to the design of these shirts, I will most likely be wearing them for the next 50+ years or unless I die first. I just threw away my Dr Pepper t-shirt that I've has since 1997 and it was basically a rag.

    Getting older, like things that will last, AND look amazing? This shirt is for you. Heck, young people, you'd look great in this as well. (Posted on 12/29/2022)

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 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.
