    I purchased the Cream Grandfather shirt in one size larger than normal for my husband's birthday. It fits perfectly, arrived quickly and compliments his kilts with brown tones. Very nice quality fabric. (Posted on 9/10/2018)

    I am very well pleased with my new grandfather shirt. Upon opening the shipping package I was immediately impressed with the softness and quality of the material. Inspecting the shirt I found it well made. My first occasion wearing it was to meet my new born twin grandsons for the first time. A most appropriate occasion for a grandfather shirt.

    I received a call from USA KILTS that the size I ordered was out of stock due to the popularity of the item. Had to wait for delivery which was a shorter wait than I was told. Once I had it and tried it on I was glad I took the ordering advice to order the next size up. Fits perfectly. My only advice is to wash it by hand or in a gentle cycle and hang it to dry. Love this shirt. In fact, I'm getting ready to place another order to take advantage of the sale price. Rock on USA KILTS. (Posted on 8/28/2018)

    I go to a lot of highland games, usually for pipe band competitions - so I own a lot of short sleeved shirts. This is a really nice shirt that I'll gladly change into instead of my standard band attire or games t-shirt. (Posted on 8/27/2018)

    I've seen these shirts for sell at festivals for roughly the same price. Don't let that detract from the quality of this product. This shirt is comfortable, roomy, and we'll made, plus you know that it's not been out in the weather or tried on by a bunch of people. (Posted on 8/18/2018)

    I received my Grandfather Shirt quickly. The quality of this product is superb, appears very well made. I took the recommendation to order the next size larger, I normally wear a L shirt so ordered an XL. The fit was perfect, good looking shirt, will likely order more to wear with my jeans.

    This shirt is very comfortable and looks wonderful. It has the look of the linen but the cotton adds comfort and truly does help reduce wrinkles. Pairs well with a tweed flat cap and brown leather shoes. (Posted on 8/6/2018)

    Just received this today. The shirt is perfect. It’ll be great for a non formal event, or around the house. And I greatly appreciate the phone call explaining the sizing of the shirts (European sizes running smaller) (Posted on 6/21/2018)

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


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.
