Product Description

Claridge + King launched a decade ago with one single item: our His is Hers® Original Shirt. To celebrate this boyfriend shirt’s enduring style, this season we’ve created the Cross Back Button-Down Shirt in homage.

Designed with a longer tail and slightly oversized fit (not quite as oversized as the His is Hers®), we’ve tricked out this piece conjuring its namesake cross back-style with two diagonal pleats crossed over each other at the shirt’s back yoke to create as much interest on the back of the shirt, as the front. 

And speaking of the front, you’ll find a classic point collar at the top of the covered front button placket concealing a row of engraved mother-of-pearl buttons beneath. Finally, for a fun twist we’ve lined the inside of each sleeve with a lightweight, blue-striped fabric, only revealed when you roll up the cuffs. 

Fashioned with the same 100 percent cotton, light blue pinpoint oxford we’ve used since our start, the Cross Back Button-Down is an easy piece to work into your wardrobe.
