utility shirt / linen
Named the utility shirt for its effortless versatility and everyday functionality.
Linen has great body regulating abilities keeping you warm in winter and cool in summer, making the Utility shirt the classic trans-seasonal wardrobe staple.
The Utility shirt is probably one of the most useful garments I own and indispensable for travelling. I love that you can dress it up or down, corporate or casual. I even wear it to the beach! it keeps me covered while still feeling light and airy against the skin. This linen has a soft finish, washes well and creases less than most linens I have come across.
Wear it slightly unbuttoned and the sleeves rolled for an effortless impression. Partially tucked to exaggerate the diagonal line of the longer scooped back hemline, or buttoned up and tucked in for a clean minimalist look.

The Utility shirt looks equally great lightly rumpled, as it does freshly ironed.
100% Soft finished Linen
This is a light and breezy shirt weight linen and is sourced from a Turkish Mill by a well established family owned and run fabric agent right here in Perth. They specialise in beautiful silks but have added linen to their selection. They are very proud of their fabric lines as they strive to provide fabrics of the very best quality.
The Utility shirt washes well, on a cold cycle in your washing machine.
WHO MADE THE UTILITY SHIRT?
The Utility shirt is made locally in Perth by a lovely and incredibly clever husband and wife team. The mainstay of their business is shirt making and they have been making shirts for many years.
