John Simons

Ivy Popover Shirt – Dark Olive Needle Cord

£120.00

Meet the new John Simons Ivy League Popover!

Utilising the very same luxuriously soft oxford cotton and collar shape as our recent “Zero” button down, along with the introduction of a back collar button. When fully fastened, the long collar points cascade beautifully, recalling what John describes as “The Ivy League Spearpoint collar”, a feature which would often be found on shirting from the “Jivy Ivy” period in the latter half of the 1960’s. When worn open the collar rolls beautifully, a feat which has been achieved by utilising a generous 3.5″ collar point and omitting any lining from the collar and placket.   

Finally, the shirt’s gradually tapering tails were inspired by yet another, lesser-known shirtmaker of the period, namely, Truval, and their Career Club line.
