EMMA WILLIS IVORY SILK PIQUE BIB DRESS SHIRT

There are dress shirts, and then there are dress shirts.  This exquisite ivory creation from Jermyn Street shirt making doyenne Emma Willis is the latter. Cut in a flowing silk pique, with a softly structured spread collar, removable button band, squared double-cuffs, and featuring a silk bib for a contemporary take on the traditional Marcella cotton front – this is the dinner shirt that dreams are made of.  Like all Emma Willis shirts, it’s handmade in Willis’s factory in Gloucester to the highest sartorial standards – perfect for dressing to impress.  £370.00, www.emmawillis.com
