The 6876 Conner Check ShirtBy Jeffrey Hyatt
With spring arriving, the Conner shirt from the UK’s fine shirt makers 6876 is simply ideal; produced in 100% cotton/100′s fold Italian blue and white gingham check, the long-sleeve shirt features taped shoulder, back yoke seam and military guard entry pocket. The new Conner shirt is being trumpeted as a re-introduction of the iconic 6876 shirt aesthetic.
I’m new to the apparel at Six Eight Seven Six, but this Conner Check Shirt has been an nice gateway item; the third season of the team’s collection is now available at the 6876 web store. Items include the Brecon bag, Fife Rucksack, Niven belt and Oyster card holders all hand crafted in Northampton with the finest materials. With the temps heating up, I’m ready to utilize this great-looking shirt. It just looks like a prime component to the wardrobe.
Priced at £125/$175, the Conner shirt also comes in an equally appealing stripe pattern. Sure, striped shirts aren’t always the answer, but it’s hard to go wrong when one is as well-made as what we have here. I still defer to the check, but its a solid move whichever shirt you go with. British-made tailoring at its finest! [via swipelife]
