You know what they say: never talk politics or religion. Instead, the founders of Worboys chatted style at a fortuitous dinner party in the summer of 2016. More specifically, they chatted about the hole in the market for high-quality custom print shirts.
Fast forward two years, and now Worboys has carved out a niche for stylish shirts that are ideal for laid-back occasions. You know, like summer dinner parties.
Prints – from classic paisleys to more bold floral numbers – are at the core of the brand. These shirts are made from cotton poplin – a plain weave, tightly woven with fine yarns. Its resistance to creasing makes it a great choice for travel. Worboys use a higher thread count than usual, too, which results in a smoother touch and cooler feel.
The shirts are even environmentally friendly. Worboys prints digitally – unlike traditional methods, digital printing is very green
The shirts are even environmentally friendly. Worboys prints digitally – unlike traditional methods, digital printing is very green. The machines use water-based eco-friendly ink, which bonds the design to the fabric with steam instead of harmful chemicals. This means no excess ink is used, and no harmful chemicals are necessary.
If the print patterns are too much for you, a new selection of plain linens have been added to the line-up for this season. The are perfect holiday shirts to take you from beach to bar, but smart enough to be worn under a jacket to a summer event.
