Product Description

Crisp. Black. Fitted. The Essential Black Shirt (much like our Great White Shirt series) is our interpretation of that take-anywhere, go-with-nearly-anything tailored black shirt.

Beautifully crafted with an easy care, black poplin shirting, this fitted pitch-black hued blouse is a classic, button-down piece–devoid of visually unappealing darts. Appointed with dark gray shell buttons and 4-inch long barrel cuffs, the Essential Black Shirt features a point collar.

Subtly tailored to create a slim fit throughout, we hope you’ll find this piece an essential part of your wardrobe.


  • 100% black cotton poplin (an easy-care fabric)
  • Charcoal-hued shell buttons
  • 4-inch, single button barrel cuffs
  • 2 3/8” long point collar
  • Our model Lesli wears a size small in the (fitted) Essential Black Shirt 

While our fitted shirts run true to size, if you possess a large bust we suggest you consider ordering a size larger. For more info, check the “Sizing Details” tab—in The Tool Kit—to ascertain this shirt's dimensions and determine what size will suit you best.
