Nehru Shirt, Linen
Hollington’s original stand-up collar shirt.
For most manufacturers stand-up collars are a passing fad. Patric Hollington, on the other hand, has been a devotee of the stand-up collar – the only type of shirt collar he made – for over 45 years. He named it the Nehru collar – as a tribute to Jawaharlal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of modern-day India and probably one of the best-dressed politicians of his time, whose particular fondness for stand-up collars was well known.
A “must” for Hollington – 2 pockets!
As a self-confessed “pocket fan”, Patric Hollington has equipped the shirt with two practical breast pockets. The pure fine linen of this shirt makes it particularly nice to wear on hot summer days. In bright white or with a brown and white Vichy check. You can casually combine it with linen, denim, canvas and chinos.
Casual, straight cut. Length in collar size 16″/16.5": 75.5cm (29.7"). Sleeve length: 65cm (25.6"). 100% linen. Machine wash.
