A great number of now everyday fashion items have their roots in the sporting world – blazers, baseball caps, trainers – and the button-down collar shirt. The style harks back to a time when a polo player’s collar was secured to his shirt to stop it from flapping in his face as he rode. The idea was introduced to menswear, and the rest is history.

Today, the button-down shirt is a permanent fixture in many of our wardrobes thanks to its effortless yet elegant aesthetic. While it sits comfortably at the more casual end of the shirt spectrum thanks to its sporty origins, it’s elevated for more formal situations with the right fabric and finish – pairing it with a tie should never be ruled out.

Our button-downs are offered in a range of top-quality materials and styles to take you from desk to downtime with ease. Available in both of our body fits, all with a two-button cuff, choose from classic Oxford cloth or silky-smooth poplin to casually smart corduroy, linen or checks. There’s a button-down for every setting and season.
