Men's Classic Viyella Sport Shirt in Solid Chambray
Viyella flannel shirts have been a seasonal favorite for generations of Englishmen. “Viyella” refers to the patented blend of Merino wool and cotton and it is the oldest branded fabric in the world. When it debuted in 1893, Viyella fabric was an instant success for the original manufacturer, William Hollins & Co. of Matlock, Derbyshire. Established in 1784, the fabric prompted Hollins to depart from centuries as a yarn spinner and hosier to become manufacturers of both finished clothing and piece goods. The material debuted as “guaranteed unshrinkable fine wool flannel”. Viyella soon found its way into a wide array of men’s and women’s clothing, thus replacing more easily shrinkable materials, like challis. Currently produced with a blend of 20% Merino and 80% cotton, the wool and cotton fibers are carefully blended into a single yarn. The shirts are manufactured in Canada with durable twin-needle tailoring and attention to detail; the buttons are still hand-positioned so the logo always points up. Generous armholes, traditional cut, lengthy sleeves, and functional breast pocket maintain the original hunt heritage of the garment. “Warm when it's not and cool when it's hot” the all-natural Viyella material is a 125-year-old performance fabric.
