THE MAKING OF A MODERN ICON

The authentic check shirts, much copied, never bettered. One of our more recent additions, the mens tattersall checked shirt was only introduced in 1900, but was adopted almost immediately as an indispensible part of a gentleman’s wardrobe.

Available in large or small checks in a range of colours, they were inspired by the check on the blankets worn by thoroughbreds at Newmarket. These classic shirts have become an everyday, odds on favourite and a winner every time. . Made with traditional unfused collars, which creates a superior supple shape. A time honoured method.

Tattersall shirts, the cornerstone of the Cordings shirt collection, our shirt wall in Piccadilly and a selection of our patterns.
