The Short-Sleeved Shirt
An alternative, chic take on the short-sleeved Summer shirt.
The PS short-sleeve is made from fine Irish linen, and cut long in order to be tucked into elegant tailored trousers. It makes use of the PS button-down collar to offer something more casual than a dress shirt, yet much more considered than most short sleeves.
Those sleeves are also cut short, close to the arm, in a style that is more flattering for most wearers and recalls 1950s images of Elvis Presley or James Dean rolling up their shirts, polos or T-shirts.
Says Simon: "I won’t be surprised if this offering surprises a few readers. But I’ve been wearing mine for almost a year now, and I love it - I’m a convert. It’s particularly appealing when the shirt is worn with equally well-made and tailored pieces elsewhere, such as bespoke linen or cotton trousers, and lightweight slip-ons. It's the epitome of casual chic in the Summer."
The fit is the same as all other PS shirts, as is the button-down collar. The only difference is the sleeve.
That sleeve might be narrow on a small number of customers, but based on testing, only a small one. Check measurements below to be sure, and compare them to a polo shirt you own.
