I know for certain that the HA Oxford has that spirally weave they've been doing for years.

I prefer the fabric of the HA but is the other one a lighter weight?

their classic silk shirts are my favourite shirts, but agree that 190 is intolerable. would pay £100 in sale though for sure.

the only problem with those shirts as that they can become a bit delicate after washing.. not as soft and almost dry out/go a bit papery. anyone use fabric softener? I wonder if its the hardness of the water in my area doing this

Anyone have any idea if the Generation or 1950s shirts with 50/55% linen shrinks in the wash?

Want to pick up one but don’t want to be dealing with shrinkage that you would usually associate with linen.

They are the same linen/cotton blend, but they are a slightly different thickness. It's noticeable in the flesh but maybe not so much when looking at pics online, though the photo of the collars (2nd pic on each) is a good way to compare.

I've owned several of the 'heavy' 1950s shirts (they were never labelled as heavy before) over the last few years as I love the texture and feel of the fabric, though if you're thinking of a summer cop I'd say they're a bit too warm.

How do the classic silk shirts fit versus the 1940s, 50s or Generation? My local stockist never seems to carry the sliks for whatever reason
