A graph check is the quintessential non-pattern pattern and makes for an especially easy-to-wear dress shirt. This one's got a modified spread collar with lightweight, fused interlining to lend some structure. (A little inside baseball: the collar point length is designed to sit in perfect harmony with the widths of our ties and our jacket lapels, all 8cm exactly.) As always, the cut is slim but never skinny, with a high armhole for mobility and a long-enough-to-stay-tucked-in shirttail. It's made with single-needle stitching, 22 stitches/inch, flat-felled seams, and thick, 3.5mm Trocas shell buttons. And while they're designed to look fantastic with a tie, all of our dress shirts can be opened up and worn more casually — in fact, on weekends, we wear them as sport shirts.
