Budd’s new contrasting dress shirts

Permanent-pleated bib panels have subtle flair

Traditional men’s outfitters Budd Shirtmakers has produced some excellent new dress shirts (£175) that have subtle flair. Of note are two with permanent-pleated bib panels – one with horizontal pleats, the other vertical (pictured) – made from fine-antique ribbed white cotton, which Budd discovered in archive stock. This makes for an elegant contrast as the rest of the shirt is a sophisticated cream. The style particularly suits a bow tie, and mother-of-pearl buttons are a stylish option, too.
