the fabric

This shirt is taylored from a very beautiful midnight blue cotton canvas, with a very fine, light and fresh thread. It is produced in Italy, as its style and chic suggest. The fine stripes alternating tiny dots are formed by a sky-blue thread. A dark shirt, particularly fitting and smart.

the cut

Jazz music accompanied Patric Hollington wherever he was: at home, in his car, at the office or in his studio. Witness of his favourite moments, jazz took him to the guts, and he loved all of its colours. He could describe the weight of the notes or the substance of a song. His favourite period was the 1940s and 1950s, and he knew as much about it as he did about fabric.

As you may imagine, Patric designed the Truman shirt while listening to jazz, and probably even listening to Nat King Cole, his favourite jazzman contemporary of President Harry Truman. That day, for the first time in hollington’s history, the shirt created will be unbuttoned from top ... down!

The Truman's cut is wide and its wide armhole ends on a two-button cuff. American collars inspired Patric here, but he took to collar tab off – the saxophonist Coleman Hawkins liked his collars with no tab. For a more recent reference, the collars chosen by the costumers of the Mad Men series look like the collar of the Truman shirt. A chest pocket is also there to allow you to drop the waistcoat or jacket and go dancing to a jazz tune.

As for style, Patric imagined the Truman worn with the collar tightly closed, strict and chic, matched with flannel pants worn short with a 5 cm lapel. But some people adapted it and wear it oversize, open on a T-shirt, like an over shirt.
