Garment Care

Washing Tips

  • Before washing remember to turn the shirt inside out, this gives the laundry detergent direct access to the underarm stains.
  • Shirts can be laundered or machine-washed with a maximum temperature of 40ºC (104ºF). Generally, we recommend a temperature of 30ºC (86ºF).
  • Line dry in order to increase the durability of the shirt. Do not tumble dry the shirt.

Ironing Tips

  • Please note that the majority of our shirts can be ironed with the 'cotton' setting on the ironer. However, some shirts of our Royal Line can only be ironed with the 'silk' setting because of the elements in the fabric that are made from silk. 
    These shirts are: The Royal Blue Twill, The Ice Blue Royal Poplin and The White Royal Poplin.
    Also note that the garment label cannot be ironed as it is not made from cotton or silk and therefore may be damaged when ironed.
  • The best way to iron a pure cotton shirt is when it's still slightly damp from the wash, this is much easier than using a steam spray to dampen it once it is dried. However, a spray might still be required if there are uneven dry places.
  • The best way to iron a shirt is as follows: collar, cuffs, sleeves, shoulders, front panels and finishing with the back panel. Remember that the cuffs should always be ironed unbuttoned.
  • After ironing, the shirt should be hung up with the top button fastened. The evaporation will reduce the final creases.

Shrinkage

  • After the first few washes, the shirt will shrink slightly, about 2–3%, in the chest and in the sleeves.
