    I will admit opening the package and looking at this shirt was like being a little kid at Christmas. Upon touching the fabric you could feel the quality of the fabric. see the detail in the craftsmanship. I did order the next size up I tried it on before I washed in and after the wash. There was a little bit of shrinkage even line drying it. I blame it on the Texas Summer! It now fits perfectly! (Posted on 9/3/2019)

    I first saw this exact shirt at a Scottish store in Williamsburg VA and wanted it but the price of $59 was more than I was willing to pay. I found it for sale online from the weavers of Ireland but with shipping it would have been closer to $70. So when I saw it on sale here for $49 I jumped at the opportunity. I'm very happy with it and may buy another if the price stays where it is. (Posted on 7/15/2019)

    I bought two of these shirts in Cream and Grey both in different sizes XL & XXL just in case the sizes were off. I am pleased to say they both fit well....the latter being looser. They feel great, look great and I love wearing them. (Posted on 6/28/2019)

    Service was very fast and the shirt is a good quality and slightly dressier than a regular shirt. Definitely order a size larger than you normally wear. (Posted on 2/26/2019)

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 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.
