Micro Dot Dobby - Stretch Cotton Designer Shirting was originally created for a top British designer. This Turkish cotton with excellent quality and high thread count has a little added elastane for width-wise ease, natural breathability and an amazingly soft feel and features a neat micro dot design.

The fine quality weave and classic colour combination produce a timeless style perfect to dress up or down, think quality shirt, jeans and blazer style. Team with classic black, or dress it down by wearing it with your favourite pieces of denim or chino-style separates.
