A Selection of Contrasting Workwear Shirts

April 24th, 2019 by Victoria Britton

The Russell brand of workwear, part of the well-known Fruit of the Loom group, is a leading supplier of high-quality garments for the corporate clothing market.

Three new designs for 2019 feature an increasingly popular design feature, namely the use of contrasting colours/fabrics on the inside of the cuffs and colours of formal long-sleeved shirts.  In a business environment where more and more people wear their shirts open-necked, and are happy to roll up their sleeves (literally) in warmer conditions, these contrast details add a stylish and eye catching feature that differentiates these shirts from more mainstream alternatives.

The 966M Russell Collection Long Sleeve Contrast Ultimate Stretch Shirt is manufactured from 75% cotton and 25% Lycra® T400.  The use of a stretch fabric, combined with a tailored fit and longer length, ensures a stylish and comfortable shirt with excellent moisture management.  The 966M has a concealed button-down collar, a narrow placket with self-colours buttons and rounded two-button adjustable cuffs, which can also be worn with cufflinks.  The inside of the collar and the inner cuffs feature a contrasting coloured fabric, with a zigzag stitch.  Colour options for this stylish shirt are black/grey, navy/blue and white/blue.  Sizes available range from Small (equivalent to a 36/38″ chest) up to 4XL(48/50″ chest).

The 964M Long Sleeve Herringbone Shirt also has a concealed button-down collar and tailored fit.  This elegant shirt is made from an easy-care 84% cotton/16% polyester, with a curved hem and back darts for an improved fit.  The contrasting details come in the form of the collar liner, the inside of the cuffs, and the edging around the lower button placket.  Colour options are light blue/mid blue and white/silver and the shirt is available in collar sizes 14.5″ through to 19.5″.

The 920M Tailored Long Sleeve Washed Cotton Oxford Shirt is made from an easy-care 140gsm GOTS® (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified organic cotton.  This washed garment has a curved hem and left chest pocket and features elegant pearlised buttons and a removable accessory loop between two of the buttons.  The button-down collar and rounded two-button cuffs both feature contrasting inner linings, for a contemporary finishing touch.  Four colour options are available – Oxford blue/navy, Oxford navy/blue, Oxford red/cream and white/blue.  Like the 966M shirt, the 920M is available in sizes Small to 4XL.
