Dating back the the 19th century, the Capri Collar is an unmistakable mark of quality and sophistication. It uses a one-piece construction throughout the collar and placket, allowing for seamless lines when the shirt is worn unbuttoned at the top. Paired with its plain French placket, this shirt is a symphony of minimal style and old-school elegance.
Our factory is one of the few shirtmakers in the world who can execute this labor-intensive construction, and they do an brilliant job with it. The buttondown collar has a prominent stance and an absolutely perfect roll.
This gorgeous white broadcloth hails from the Thomas Mason Silverline collection. It's Super 120s two-ply yarn is supremely soft and luxe... yielding the ideal crisp white dress shirt.
Our measurements on the Capri shirt are slightly tweaked from the usual Epaulet shape. We eliminated our typical body darts and box pleat.. giving the shirt a clean, plain back. The shoulder and chest are slightly modified to compensate.. so therefore, we advise buying your typical Epaulet size in this, as the fit will be consistent. The mid-length tail allows you to wear the shirt tucked or untucked. The buttondown collar has a full "ivy league" roll and a commanding high collar stance. Un-breakable resin buttons finish it all off.
Worn casually or dressed up & pressed, this will surely be one of your most versatile pieces. These shirts run true to size with our overall collection.
Origin & Construction
Each shirt is crafted at one of the oldest and most skilled shirtmakers in Portugal. The Somelos fabric is a bit lighter than the typical American or English oxford cloth - offering more wearability during the warmer months, but not sacrificing overall durability.
All measurements are shown in inches. "Chest" is measured from one seam at the armpit to the other. "Shoulder" is measured from one shoulder seam to the other. "Sleeve" is measured from the shoulder seam to the cuff. "Length" is measured from the base of the collar (where it attaches to the shirt) to the bottom of the tail.
