  • Luxury Cotton Shirtings at Britex

    August 25, 2010 by Britex Fabrics

    Britex Fabrics is the place to come to when you are looking for fabric to make bespoke shirts. We carry amazing pima shirting cottons, including imported Sea Island and Swiss solids, newly arrived Etro stripes, and more. These cottons make wonderful shirts; so soft that they almost feel like silk, long-wearing, and in a plethora of solids, tone-on-tones, tartans, plaids, and stripes. A well-dressed dandy will dress in subtly striped shirts with the marvelous spiffiness of contrasting Liberty of London collar linings, cuff linings, and collar stands. We like this combination of an espresso Etro stripe, plus a graceful Arts & Crafts-inspired Liberty of London print. Très chic!

    Please email M. Du Jour at Britex Fabrics if you want to buy either of these two fabrics.

    If you wish another fabric, contact us through our fabric mail order department for detailed mail order assistance.
