John Simons

Ivy Popover Shirt – Dark Olive Needle Cord


Meet the new John Simons Ivy League Popover!

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.
