Our Great White Shirt, No. 6 is made with a 2-ply silk crepe that has been washed with a special process that gives the fabric an extraordinary softness that feels wonderful next to your skin. We suggest you professionally dry-clean this blouse. Alternatively, you may hand-wash your G.W.S. in cool water and lay flat to dry. Iron on the silk setting, if desired.

Product Description

To us, there’s nothing better against bare skin than the feel of pure silk. And we like to think we’ve enhanced our silks even further by prewashing them with a sand wash process that leaves our 2-ply silk crepe with a softness and drape that’s unparalleled.

Created with an ivory, washed silk crepe in a shade we call blanc de blanc, our Great White Shirt, No. 6 is the sort of fitted, classic silk blouse you’ll undoubtedly find myriad ways to wear.

Our GWS No. 6 features a covered front button placket—and beneath—a row of demure golden buttons. This fitted button-down shirt (made without darts) is one of the best because of its timeless, slightly masculine cut­—designed to just skim the body.


  • 2-ply soft, sand washed silk crepe
  • Elegant, flat golden buttons
  • Covered front button placket
  • Single-button, 4-inch long cuffs
  • Classic point collar
  • Our model Lesli is 5' 8" tall and wears a size small

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