    Our Irish-made Grandfather shirt (aka Grandad Shirt, Graddad shirt, Irish Laborer Shirt, Banded collar shirt, Stand Up Collar Shirt, etc.) is a rich Cotton / Linen blend ideal for summer heat. Pairs perfectly with a kilt when you want something nicer than a t-shirt, but not as dressy as a dress shirt. This shirt features the classic look of the upper placket with 10 buttons and the left chest pocket. Made from an easy care blend of 10% linen / 90% cotton.

    I read the reviews and ordered a size larger. After the first wash on cold and a line dry, it fit perfectly. I love this shirt. It is so comfortable. The only thing negative I'd say is that some threads have come loose after the first watch and I've had to snip them. Other than that, I'm very pleased. (Posted on 7/1/2020)

    I grew up in the cut and sew industry. Can tell you with confidence this is a very well made shirt. Quality cloth, quality seamsmanship. I really like it has a pocket, most shirts in this style don't and I want/need a pocket. (Posted on 12/9/2019)

    I bought two of these shirts in Grey and Cream 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)

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 grey which tones perfectly with most weathered color palette tartans and pretty much any tartan as grey is a neutral color! Pair this shirt with your favorite kilt, day sporran and flat cap.
