THE SHIRTS THAT DON'T TAKE THEMSELVES TOO SERIOUSLY

Who says suited and booted has to mean staid and serious? ETON shirts argue just the opposite with their microprint cuffs and collars. On first appearance they’re a simple white shirt, cut with the same care and attention you have come to expect from ETON, but look a little closer and there’s a subtle shot of personality hidden in those crevices. Really wild safari scenes or ice cream dreams, there’s nothing bland or boring about these subtle details. Sometimes the smallest touches make the biggest impact.

THE VALENTINE'S DAY GIFT GUIDE FOR HIM

Valentine’s Day isn’t just for lucky in love ladies - the main man in your life deserves something special too. And if it just so happens to be super stylish, well isn’t that just all the better?

After sharing our Valentine’s Day gift guide for the girls, we’re turning our attention to gifts for the fashion conscious fellas. There isn’t an aftershave or Toblerone in sight. Instead, we’re getting your man date night ready in ETON, Jacob Cohen, Hugo Boss and the new brand in our Bawtry designer boutique, John Varvatos. Plus, we all know that the beauty of a shopping spree for someone else is that you don’t have to hide the receipt when you get home.

If the humble tie is good enough for Richard Gere’s millionaire tastes in Pretty Woman, it’s good enough for us, especially when that slip of silk comes courtesy of ETON.

We’re yet to meet a man who doesn’t secretly harbour dreams of playing 007. Let him make like Mr Bond in this John Varvatos goat suede jacket, as seen on the man himself in the closing scenes of Spectre. If he prefers the classic leather biker jacket, it had better be Belstaff.

Upgrade his stinky sneakers to something a little more, how shall we put this…high fashion. These Emporio Armani trainers are new for SS18 and we’re really feeling the khaki/grey colour way.

Jeans might not scream romance but it’s a different matter altogether when they’re handmade Jacob Cohen creations with solid gold and crocodile skin accents. Nothing says ‘I love you’ quite like limited edition.

KNOW YOUR FASHION: FOUR THINGS YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT ETON SHIRTS

Eton has grown from a small family concern, started in the Swedish village of Ganghester in 1928, to become one of the most respected brands in the shirting industry. Revolutionary and stocked by boutiques across the world, including right here at Robinsons, this unique specialist shirt maker promises modern style with traditional craftsmanship. Here are four things you probably didn’t know about Eton shirts.

ETON OFFERS NO FEWER THAN TEN DIFFERENT COLLAR STYLES

To the untrained eye, a collar is a collar is a collar. But knowing the difference between the almost twenty different collar styles and choosing the right one for your outfit gives you the edge that you need to ensure that your look is more James Bond than Joe Bloggs.

There are an incredible TEN collar styles on offer with Eton, from the traditional Moderate Cut Away Collar – a must for the office – to the face-slimming Pointed Pin Collar, the preppy Button Down and the Classic, the style chosen by Mr Bond himself in Skyfall.   

THERE’S MORE TO AN ETON SHIRT THAN YOU THINK

Each Eton shirt is made up of 45 different parts and sewn with 12,000. The details of each shirt differ depending on which collection it is from. There are four Eton collections: the classic Eton Collection, Eton Green, a collection of shirts made from raw, untreated fabrics, the relaxed Unbuttoned collection and the suave styles in the Evening collection. We stock them all here at Robinsons, the region’s leading stockist of Eton shirts.  

ETON HAS A WHOLE RANGE OF SHIRTS DESIGNED ESPECIALLY FOR SUMMER

‘Sun’s out, guns out’ is a saying that never actually worked out for anyone. Save your vests for the garden this summer and go for something smarter instead. Shirts in seersucker, linen and muslin were made for warmer weather. Cool and airy, shirts in all three fabrics deserve a place in your suitcase. Wear yours with chinos, trunks or, for summer’s special occasions, a lightweight suit.

THERE ARE SIX FABRICS IN THE ETON COLLECTION ALONE

If you thought that all classic shirts were one and the same, think again. The Eton Collection comprises no fewer than six different fabrics, all creating very different effects and all ideal for the office. Eton’s Satin Fabric is luxurious, making it perfect for special occasions, whilst Textured Twill lends a modern look that gives striped designs an edge. When it comes to your everyday office attire, the combination of cotton and linen stay crisp and keep you call all working day. Linen shirts travel famously well too, making this the fabric of choice for business abroad.

Robinsons of Bawtry is one of Eton’s preferred UK stockists, offering an extensive range of over 100 shirt styles and accessories in store today. We are official stockists of three ready-to-wear fits including Slim Fit, Contemporary Fit and Classic Fit, and have also collaborated with Eton to provide a made-to-measure service too.

ETON SHIRTS: IT'S ALL IN THE DETAIL

Business attire needn’t be boring. If you’re stuck in a work-wear rut, wearing the same white shirt week after week, it’s time to switch up your shirt style.

ETON is the shirt specialist, renowned as one of the world’s finest shirt makers and considered a revolutionary in the shirting industry. The Swedish brand, which is famed for its exceptional quality and premium craftsmanship, is the answer to your work-wear prayers.

Here at Robinsons, we are Yorkshire’s leading stockist of ETON shirts and this month’s new arrivals were made for your working week. Here are three ways to mix it up for May.

PATTERN

A print is a failsafe way to stand out from the crowd. Whilst patterned shirts aren’t for every office environment, they’re a game changer if you work in a creative industry. Keep things low key with a hint of a print - the ETON Chain Print Shirt gets our vote - or go all out for summer with the Hawaiian blooms of the ETON Floral Shirt.

For something completely different, it has to be the ETON Seersucker Fish Scale Shirt, complete with summer-ready short sleeves.

EXTRAS

Before the suit came the handkerchief and this simple slither of fabric is one of the easiest, most inexpensive ways to switch up your work look. Add interest with a pocket square but steer clear of matching your square and tie. Instead, coordinate the two, opting for a clear jewel toned tie and a patterned pocket square in a print that incorporates the same colour.  

DETAILS

The ETON brand is synonymous with attention to detail and it is the little things that will set you apart when you need to look smart. Some of our favourite new arrivals from ETON are simple shirts accented with unusual details, such as contrast buttonhole stitching, a printed inside collar or a subtly coloured button. It’s a great way of working a little personality into your office appropriate look.
