Where did the Prince of Wales check come from?
The check was first created by the Duke of Windsor who was previously Edward the VII when he was Prince of Wales and is very similar to the Glen Urquhart check.
It is commonly made and woven in a twill pattern and is a combination of alternating dark and light stripes crossing over each other in small and large checks. It is normally created in a muted colour with white for shirts and shades of grey and black for suits.
This subtle pattern is used normally as an understated smart look for the working environment. Our original classic shirt is beautifully finished with a button cuff and choice of regular or long sleeve lengths, a hand crafted semi cutaway collar, signature Pink gusset and split yoke across the shoulders which ensures comfort and style whatever the setting.
